Amandla Stenberg Isn't Letting Kylie Jenner Get Away With Rocking Cornrows

Hunger Games actress calls out the reality star for cultural appropriation.

Published July 12, 2015

UPDATE: Don't come for Kylie! The youngest Jenner wasted no time clapping back at Amandla Stenberg for the Hunger Games star's criticism of her 'do. "@amandlastenberg Mad if I don't, Mad if I do…. Go hang w Jaden or something," the reality star wrote in response to Stenberg's Instagram shade. Jaden Smith, of course, is the longtime friend and rumored ex of Jenner, who later accompanied Stenberg to her prom. Looks like there's more to this feud than meets the eye!

Amandla Stenberg doesn't want anyone cash cropping her cornrows — least of all Kylie Jenner. The Hunger Games actress called out the teenage reality star on social media, after Jenner posted a pic of herself rocking a new hairstyle on Instagram with the caption, "I woke up like disss," and a link to her new wig line.

"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," Stenberg wrote.

So far, it doesn't look like Tyga's girl is defending herself against Stenberg's accusations. And we don't blame her. The young actress has strong opinions when it comes to cultural appropriation, and has already taught us not to step to her.

As for Kylie, maybe she should just stick to appropriating Smurf culture for her edgy look.
