'Hunger Games' star calls out Kylie Jenner over cornrows selfie

Amandla Stenberg slams Kylie Jenner for her "appropriating black culture" by getting braids.

I love the smell of teenage celebrity Instagram feuds in the morning. It smells like the future. So, in answer to the question we ask with surprisingly regularity — what did Kylie Jenner do this time? — this week it turns out it's, "Got cornrows." And another teenage famous-ish person — Amandla Stenberg, best known for dying tragically in the first "Hunger Games" movie — was not having it.


I woke up like disss

Stenberg left this piquant comment on Jenner's Instagram post: "When you appropriate black features and culture but fail to use your position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards your wigs instead of police brutality or racism," followed by the hashtag "white girls do it better." Ouch.

The dig was enough to earn aresponseminutes later from Jenner: "Mad it I don't, mad if I do," she posted. "Go hang with Jaden or something." I can understand why time spent with Jaden Smith would be considered punishment. And Jenner would know better than any of us, right?
