What’s with the whole culture appropriation thing in America?

Sorry, I know I sound like an ignorant foreigner, born and raised in China. But could someone please explain to me what the hell cultural appropriation is? I keep seeing celebrities like Katy Perry and Beyonce get accused of cultural appropriation. I saw a story about a girl who wore a Chinese dress to a prom in school and she got attacked via twitter. I don't get it. Why is it offensive to use someone else's culture?
