Kylie Jenner Criticized By 'The Hunger Games' Actress For Wearing Cornrows

Reality TV star Kylie Jenner posted a picture of herself on Instagram wearing cornrows last Saturday and got over one million "likes."

However, actress Amandla Stenberg, who co-starred in "The Hunger Games," objected to the picture, notes

Stenberg wrote on Jenner's Instagram posting:

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

The New York Daily News reports that Jenner responded: "@amandlastenberg Mad if I don't, Mad if I do…. Go hang w Jaden or something."

Jaden Smith reportedly took Stenberg to a school prom in May.

Back in April, Stenberg appeared in a video (below) entitled: "Don't Cash Crop On My Cornrows."
