To me that makes it look very much like a "problem" invented in the USA.
Well, yes, cultural appropriation has probably been literally invented in the USA by some scholars, and the only reason we've heard about it is because the idea spread through the "Tumblr social justice" culture which happens to be mostly in the US.
However, it's one of those things that wouldn't really be relevant anywhere if it wasn't for the disproportionate amount of people who vocally oppose it, like the Starbucks red cup fake-controversy. Yes, it's a shame that some yoga classes got suspended because idiots, but I suspect the number of people affected by incidents like that is around 0.001% of the population.
