Kylie Jenner’s Cornrows Have Made One Hunger Games Star Pretty Unhappy

Kylie Jenner managed to upset The Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg over the weekend, by posting a photo of her new cornrow hairstyle on Instagram, where she was accused of ‘appropriating black culture’ without ‘helping black Americans’.
Amandla publicly commented on the snap, writing, “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.”
Within minutes, Kylie had replied, “Mad if I don't, Mad if I do…. Go hang w Jaden or something.”
The 17-year-old was referring to the fact Amandla went to prom with Jaden Smith in May this year, with Kylie – now thought to be dating rapper Tyga – previously rumoured to have dated the teen star.
On Monday morning, 16-year-old Amanda took to Instagram again, to write about her views on the stigmas surrounding “black feminine sexuality” and the media “ignoring black women altogether” or “disparaging them”.
Kylie, who has also sported mermaid blue hair over the past week, now appears to have removed her cornrows.
