Controversy seems to follow the Kardashians and the Jenners more now than ever recently. The latest incident belonging to the youngest member of the family Kylie, 17, who got into a feud with Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg, 16, over Jenner’s decision to sport cornrows on Twitter. Stenberg left a highly aggresive comment on Jenner’s picture: ‘When u appropriate black features and culture but fail to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism #whitegirlsdoitbetter.’
Jenner responded ambiguously (and inarticulately), hinting that Will Smith’s son Jaden had something to do with it: ‘Mad if I don’t, Mad if I do…. Go hang w Jaden or something.’
Is Stenberg appropriating white culture by using Twitter and speaking English? This whole ‘appropriating’ attitude is just stupid to me.
