Kylie Jenner and Hunger Games Actress Amandla Stenberg Feud on Twitter
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.
