‘Rue’ Gets Real With Kylie Jenner and Her Cornrows
Amandla Stenberg, the actress who played “Rue” in “The Hunger Games” is not here for Kylie Jenner’s cultural appropriation and didn’t hesitate to let the reality star know it.
Jenner who’s been making headlines for her relationship with rapper, Tyga, recently took to Instagram, posting a selfie rocking cornrows with the caption, “I woke up like disss,” with a link to her new wig line. Stenberg was quick to let her know that if she going to use black culture to her advantage, she could at least do it for a good cause. She commented:
“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.”
Kylie Jenner responded with a short, but shady response bringing actor Jaden Smith into the mix:
“Mad if I don’t, Mad if I do…. Go hang w Jaden or something”
Smith was good friends with Jenner in the past and recently escorted Stenberg to prom.
Jenner might want to fall back for a bit. Between rumors of Tyga cheating on her, and the relationship being constantly scrutinized for their age difference, beef with Stenberg is only going to add to her bad press. She is quickly being known more for the drama surrounding her than modeling, acting, partying or whatever she gets paid to do professionally. She may not want it with Stenberg who is already making a name for articulately speaking about race relations and injustice in America with a passion and vigilance that proves she is wise beyond her years.
Do you think Stenberg is being too hard on Kylie or did she really just what we’ve all been thinking?
