Kylie Jenner’s Cornrows Spark Instagram Feud with Amandla Stenberg


Kylie Jenner’s Cornrows Spark Instagram Feud with Amandla Stenberg


Yesterday Kylie Jenner posted a selfie showing off her new cornrows. The pic was captioned “I woke up like disss,” which seems unlikely as hair tends not to style itself overnight and sleeping in all those bangles couldn’t possibly be comfortable. But that’s not why we’re here.

I woke up like disss

A photo posted by King Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Despite the fact that 1.2 million people liked the photo (holy crap, that’s a lot), one person very much did not.

That person is Hunger Games star Amandla Stenberg, who, as you may recall, was Jaden Smith’s date to prom (don’t worry, that piece of information becomes relevant soon).

Stenberg let King Kylie know just how she feels about her new lewk in the comments section:

“@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,”

(Note: @novemberskyys is November Skyy Riviera, a pal of Stenberg’s. It’s unclear why she’s tagged)

Jenner didn’t let it end there. The reality star, who was allegedly caught smooching Jaden Smith (told you it would become relevant) at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding last year (Jenner denied it, saying they’re just friends) fired back with this:

“@amandlastenberg Mad if I don’t, Mad if I do…. Go hang w Jaden or something.”

Pretty weak insult, honestly, seeing as they both seem to enjoy hanging out with Smith. At any rate, Kylie’s hair is back to normal and we can all move on with our lives… unless Smith wants to swoop in dressed as Batman and save the day.
