Andy Cohen Calls Amandla Stenberg and Kylie Jenner Feud the 'Jackhole of the Day'

Black Twitter erupts and calls for a boycott.

Published July 14, 2015

Twitter is not happy with Bravo's Andy Cohen after he declared Amandla Stenberg's feud with Kylie Jenner over the latter's cornrows as "Jackhole of the Day" on Watch What Happens Live. Outraged fans are calling for others to #BoycottBravo after Cohen's diss.

“Today’s Jackhole goes to the Instagram feud between Kylie Jenner and Hunger Games star-slash-Jaden Smith’s prom date Amandla Stenberg, who criticized Kylie for her cornrows, calling it cultural appropriation. White girls in cornrows ... is it OK or nay, Laverne and Andre?” Cohen asked his guests Laverne Cox and Andre Leon Talley.

Twitter was not happy with their response, either. “To me, it’s fine,” Talley replied, while Cox muttered, “Umm ... Bo Derek."

While many are outraged that Cohen would refer to 16-year-old Stenberg as a "jackhole," to be fair to the reality TV patriarch, he was referring to the feud as a jackhole and not necessarily Stenberg in particular.

Still, the talk show host has certainly stepped into some hot water.
