I am a Vietnamese American. If anyone ever sees me wearing a Vietnamese rice/conical hat, please punch me in the face. I imagine someone without any Vietnamese/Asian background wearing such a hat would look even more ridiculous.

Disagree. The ideas are contradictory. Cultural appropriation is when you borrow from another culture but continue to oppress that culture. Cultural appreciation can exist within the greater context of solidarity and struggle, but outside of this context, it is appropriation.
