Kylie Jenner's 'Insensitive' Cornrows Land Her in Hot Water on Twitter

Kylie Jenner isn't exactly a stranger to criticism. The youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan is often catching heat for the photos she posts to Instagram. Typically, though, it's how risqué Kylie's photos are that get people talking. On Saturday, however, Kylie experienced criticism of a different kind from Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg. After Kylie posted a pic of herself in cornrows over the weekend, Stenberg had some harsh words (and a reality check) for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star. 


Clad in a crop top and sweat pants, here's the pic -- and caption -- Kylie posted to Instagram:

I woke up like disss

After seeing the photo, Stenberg, who, in case you didn't know, also made a powerful video on black culture and its appropriation by mass media a few months ago, wrote, "@novemberskyys 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."

After reading the comment, Kylie shot back with, "@amandlastenberg Mad if I don't, Mad if I do…. Go hang w Jaden or something." Jaden, of course, is in reference to Jaden Smith, with whom Stenberg attended prom back in May. (And Jaden is also a friend and once rumored love of Jenner's.)

The feud has seemed to die there between the two, but if you peruse the comments on Kylie's photo, Stenberg isn't the only person who took issue with Kylie's hairstyle. Numerous people are arguing with one another and leaving harsh words for Kylie. Jaden, however, has remained tight-lipped about the argument. 

Since the spat, Stenberg has posted this to her Instagram:

bigger than you or me. discussions are healthy. ignorance is not. words by me
