The back story? The museum was holding an exhibit which involved Japanese culture and they invited people to wear kimonos as a way of getting into the exhibits more.

Meanwhile people who think this is just stupid, including Japanese people who would like people to have a better understanding of their culture, have been showing up in kimonos to counter-protest.
Delicious irony: a non-Japanese person lecturing a Japanese person (in a kimono) about cultural appropriation of Japanese culture.
