In case you missed it, Kylie Jenner got a lot of backlash after posting a pic of herself with cornrows over the weekend, most notably from actress Amandla Stenberg.

"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 commented on the photo below.

I woke up like disss

Kylie clapped back with, "@amandlastenberg Mad if I don't, mad if I do...Go hang w Jaden or something." Amandla and Jaden Smith went to prom together this year and Kylie and Jaden were a rumored couple last year.

There were a lot of commenters on each side of the debate, but now Justin Bieber has thrown his two cents in, coming to Kylie's defense: In screengrabs of the comment, the Biebs reportedly wrote, "Guys leave her alone, were all trying to figure it out and she happens to be under a microscope! I'm the first to know this. But saying she's being racist because she wants her hair in braids is ridiculous."

He continued, "Lets focus on the bigger picture and instead of fighting over something stupid lets do something about equality, but it doesn't start here blasting a 17 year old kid for wearing braids smh."

While Kylie was disappointed by one of her other pals on IG recently, the Biebs makes it pretty clear that he's got her back.
