Kendall Jenner Attacked in Vicious Tweets in a Rant by an Unlikely Enemy

Eye Roll 17

Kendall JennerKurt Cobain and Courtney Love's daughter Frances Bean Cobain made headlines in 2011 when she posed for an absolutely stunning series of photos, and at that time, it looked like she was forging her own path in the wake of her all-too-famous parents. This seemed like a very good thing, considering her father's tragically self-destructive behavior, and her mom's ... um, however you'd describe Love's personal life choices. But even though she sounded mature and well-spoken just a year ago when she decried her estranged mother's social media behavior, Cobain seems to be following in her mom's Twitter footsteps now -- because she just went OFF on a crazy rant against Kendall Jenner.

Yes: that Kendall Jenner. I'm not sure why Cobain is following a Kardashian on Twitter, or why she cares what Jenner has to say, but she started a ridiculous one-sided tweet war against the teen model on Tuesday and came off sounding like a complete douchebag in the process.

It all started when Jenner vague-tweeted the following morose, misspelled statement:

Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann

Granted, such a sentiment is a little on the eye-roll-y side coming from an impossibly rich reality star, model, and brand ambassador, but to her credit, Jenner is only 17 years old. And who doesn't indulge in some public whining now and then?

Cobain, however, decided to school Jenner on the exact nature of her First World Problem tweet:

@KendallJenner oh shh. There are kids on earth abandoned &homeless who forcibly drink contaminated water because clean water isn't accessible.

Oh ya, not to mention, CANCER, famine, poverty, drought, disease, natural disasters, Death, fuck, Humans are so self involved

i’d rather be a scumbag than a fucking idiot. Praise high IQ’s, good taste & awareness about the state of the world

Good grief. Pardon me while I bask in the astounding wisdom of Frances Bean Cobain and allow her profound words to change my worldview once and for all. Now hear this, now hear this! According to Kurt Cobain's daughter, no complaints shall be allowed unless you're specifically mentioning cancer, famine, poverty, disease, natural disaster, death, or contaminated water!

*Twitter self-implodes*

Anyway, regardless of whether or not Kendall Jenner is out of touch with the REAL problems of the world, Cobain's response was overkill, to say the least. I can't believe I'm saying this, but ... I'm on Team Kardashian in this particular flamewar.

Cobain's since deleted most of the tweets, but left this one up as a reminder that Courtney Love helped provide her with the sort of high IQ that encourages a person to engage in online attacks:

What do you think of this Twitter spat? Do you think Kendall Jenner deserved the criticism?

Well... I think she just said exactly what I was thinking.  The girl's a Kardashian, how much easier could it be?

Ok so maybe Kendall is a bit shallow like all the Kardashians, I really don't see the reason Frances exploded like that. He holier-than-thou "I care about more important problems" attitude isn't better than Kendall's in this situation. It would be really good if Frances actually SHOWED how she cares about these problems instead of judging others.

lovem... lovemy2sons25

Its hard to be a teenager sometimes, no matter who you are or who your related to...

hello... hellokd87

Just because you live in a blue collar world doesn't mean you're exempt from any of life's discomforts. She can't go to the mall like a normal teenager or any public place for that matter. She can't go to any teen parties or - the horror!!- a Jenner (considering she's not a "Kardashian" by blood, Mama Kris is Dash by marriage) is out partying, is this the start of a downward spiral?

For the millionth time - Kendall is not a Kardashian.

I'd rather be self-absorbed (I DO wish life was easier sometimes!) than a self-righteous douche.

Kendall might not have Kardashian blood but she's as damn close as you're going to get to being an actual one.

I gotta agree with Frances on this one. Yea being a teenager is hard, blah blah blah but it's a hell of a lot easier when you're rich and getting richer for doing the easiest job alive. None of the Kardashian trash would know a real problem if it smacked them in the face.

Seriously Kendall is probably the least annoying of them all. SHE'S FUCKING 17!! Who wasn't a little self absorbed ass hat at 17? France's isn't any better by trashing her. You want someone to stop thinking about themselves? GUIDE THEM. If you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem. I too would rather be self absorbed than a self righteous asshole.

"I too would rather be self absorbed than a self righteous asshole."

Slow clap for bluntcakes.
