Damn, the controversy over Kylie Jenner’s braids just keeps getting bigger. After Andy Cohen, host of Bravo’s late-night talk show Watch What Happens Live, called Amandla Sternberg a “jackhole” for criticizing Kylie Jenner’s controversial cornrow selfie, twitter exploded with cries to #BoycottBravo in Sternberg’s defense.
But let’s go back to the start of the problem. For those unfamiliar, the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family threw up a selfie on Instagram last Saturday. While that’s par for the course for any Kardashian or Jenner, the picture drew some unintended heat when commenters attacked Kylie for wearing her hair in cornrow braids, claiming it was cultural appropriation.
