Amandla Stenberg Schools Kylie Jenner On Cultural Appropriation

Kylie pls.

In case you hadn't heard, Amandla Stenberg (aka Rue from The Hunger Games) is a pretty cool/opinionated/sassy teenager who spends her time saying smart stuff and hanging with people like Tavi, Willow and Jaden Smith. Amandla gave us the #respect feels back in April when her high school history project about cultural appropriation was so on point it made us wonder what we are doing with our lives.

Cut to the now and Amandla has some true words for Kylie Jenner, who's repping cornrows on the internet to promote her new wig line. As you do.

Kyzzle posted an artful selfie on her Instagram over the weekend showcasing her new do/abs above the caption: "I woke up like disss".

Amandla posted the following comment on the pic, tagging her friend.

@novemberskyys 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

A little later Kylie replied: Mad if I don't. Mad if I do...Go hang w Jaden or something hihihi

Good one Kylie, you managed to avoid the issue and burn the hell outta Amandla (who recently went to prom with Jaden Smith) at the same time. Seriously tho, are you even trying?

When Amandla saw the comment she defs looked back at these pics and thought, "Nah, I'm good."
