Kylie Jenner changes her hair all the time. Like, pretty much every week, she's rocking a completely different style, color, or both. Aside from maybe not liking a particular color, nobody really takes offense when Ky rocks blue or black or even pink hair.

But, when she posted a pic of herself with cornrows with the caption "I woke up like disss," actress Amandla Stenberg took notice and she wasn't impressed.

"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," Amandla reportedly commented on the photo below.

This website captured what appears to be Kylie's response to Amandla's comment and it sounds like there has maybe been some bad blood brewing between these two for awhile. "@amandlastenberg Mad if I don't, mad if I do...Go hang w Jaden or something," the screengrab reads.

Kylie and Jaden Smith were a rumored couple last year and Amandla went to prom with Jaden this year, so maybe that added some extra fuel to the fire?

Amandla has been outspoken about cultural appropriation before, though, with her YouTube video "Don't Cash Crop on My Cornrows" going viral back in April.

Neither Kylie or Amandla has commented further on the incident, but the commenters have picked up the debate on their behalf and Kylie's comment section is filled with people on both sides of the argument.
