Kylie Jenner And Amandla Stenberg Feud Over Reality Star’s Cornrows Photo
Kylie Jenner and Amandla Stenberg had a feud on Saturday after the 17-year-old reality TV star shared an Instagram photo of herself wearing cornrows (see below). Jenner captioned the photo, “I woke up like diss.” Shortly after Jenner posted the photo, Stenberg commented, “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 quickly shot back at the Hunger Games star, commenting on her own photo,“@amandlastenberg Mad if I don’t, Mad if I do… Go hang w Jaden [Smith] or something.” It’s not clear if Jenner was also dissing Smith, whom she was rumored to have dated last year. As Gossip Cop recently reported, Sternberg went to her prom in May with Smith.
Jenner and Stenberg have not further commented on their feud, but this isn’t the first time the actress has slammed celebrities for what she calls “appropriating” black culture. The 16-year-old Stenberg posted a video essay on her Tumblr page in April criticizing stars like Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry for using the black culture as a way to be “edgy.” She also slammed “white musicians” for adopting “blackness,” but failing to “speak about the racism that comes along with black identity.”
