I'm not at all offended by his message, probably because I'm not a fan or wigs and weaves; they just make my head hot, I can't take it. I get what the pastor is trying to say, but I think his approach might be off. Telling someone who is struggling and has poor financial management skills to stop wearing weaves is a weak partial fix to their problem. According to the article, he feels their problem is financial management, so maybe having financial/budgeting classes would be helpful as opposed to telling them not to wear weave. If they stop spending $300 on weaves, that money will probably just go to some other random expense they don't need; it's not going to help them save it or spend it wisely.
