Andy Cohen Apologizes to Amandla Stenberg for “Jackhole” Comment About Kylie Jenner Feud: Details.

Twitter — and more specifically #BlackTwitter — is all fired up over the Real Housewives visionary’s decision to call outspoken teen actress Amandla Stenberg a “jackhole” during his popular late-night show Watch What Happens Live. Justin Bieber, Andy Cohen and the twitterverse all had something to say about cultural appropriation after a social media feud broke out on Sunday between Kardashian clan’s Kylie Jenner and “Hunger Games” star, Amandla Stenberg.

Kylie Jenner gave her younger self a good scolding on Tuesday, July 14, for breaking a vow she made on an early season of her family’s reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I said as much to Andre Leon Tally after the cameras stopped rolling… Far too often culture is appropriated without an understanding of the history and hardships from which that culture emerges.” Stenberg’s feud with Jenner came to light over the weekend when she commented on the reality star’s Instagram selfie, which featured her wearing cornrows. “@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,” Stenberg commented on the photo at the time. In the wake of teen star Amandla Stenberg’s recent comments on Kylie Jenner, Cohen asked Cox and fellow guest Andre Leon Talley on a July 12 broadcast whether “white girls and cornrows” was culturally insensitive or not. Cohen had, in the run-up to his apology, pointed out that 16-year-old Stenberg herself had not been his target, but rather the “Instagram feud” between the two. Both Cox and Talley avoided responding, leading many online commenters to interpreting Cox’s response as apparent indifference and a failure to come to the defense of Stenberg (who Cohen dubbed the “jackhole of the day”). “In that moment, I… felt that the topic of cultural appropriation needs way more than the 10 seconds or less I had to respond at the end of the show to fully unpack,” Cox wrote in a blog post on Tuesday night.

Let’s focus on the bigger picture and instead of fighting over something stupid let’s do something about equality, but it doesn’t start here blasting a 17 year old kid for wearing braids smh.” Bravo personality Andy Cohen blasted Stenberg, 16, his “Jackhole of the Day” during a segment for his talk show, “Watch What Happens Live,” which resulted in a slew of comments calling for the TV personality to be fired. The “Orange Is the New Black” star explained that she was unfamiliar with Stenberg, and did not want to get involved in a “celebrity feud.” Cox revealed she has since researched Stenberg and watched her video on cultural appropriation (“Don’t Cash Crop My Cornrows”), and was very impressed with her knowledge on the issue. For her part, Stenberg wasn’t backing down, returning to Instagram with another post about “racial fetishism” which has garnered over 30,000 likes and counting since she posted it on Sunday. “Most of us are influenced by our peers and especially at her age. In a statement sent to USA TODAY, ColorofChange.org blames Cohen and Bravo for perpetuating negative sterotypes about black women and demands that they “clean up their act.” “Andy Cohen‘s offensive and completely tone-deaf reaction to Amandla Stenberg’s decision to take a stand against cultural appropriation is no surprise.

Jenner fired back with a few of her own fighting words and then Stenberg posted a photo on both her Twitter and Tumblr accounts, with a longer, more fully-developed response to cultural appropriation, in general. Indeed, she’s almost unrecognizable from the Kylie Jenner of today, who has admitted to using “temporary lip fillers” to plump up her now-famous pout. Calling the “feud” itself a “Jackhole” is incoherent, and it also reduces any criticism a star could make of another, no matter how well-reasoned or well-intentioned, to just being a hater. Her peers and most of her surroundings are of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds,” Atlanta-based hair stylist Nakia Crouse told FOX411. “So, she’s only doing what she sees which is the case for most of us when it comes to how we dress and how we wear our hair.

The PacSun designer — the youngest of the famous Kardashian-Jenner brood, which also includes sister Kendall Jenner, half-sisters Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian, and half-brother Rob Kardashian — captioned the screengrab simply, “Dammit, Kylie!” along with a crying-with-laughter emoji. With still a month to go until her 18th birthday, the KUWTK star has her own $2.7 million mansion, a 25-year-old boyfriend, Tyga, and a clothing line with sister Kendall. “My mom cut me off financially three years ago,” she told UK InStyle earlier this year of Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner. “I pay for everything — my car, my gas, and food, as well as my clothes.” Bieber urged the online community to “leave her alone.” The fight for equality doesn’t start calling a “17-year-old kid” with braids a racist, he said. A simple Google search brings back memories of the time he used gay slang to describe members of the band One Direction, or called reality star Heidi Montag “trash,” or said New York’s PS 22 chorus “was the worst” at their Oscars performance, or called a tennis sideline interviewer “that poor lesbian reporter.” Each time brought the requisite apology: Cohen is accustomed to speaking freely and sometimes uses that freedom to push past a zone dictated by others’ comfort, or simple good taste. This time, though, felt different; rather than simple criticisms, Cohen was met with a trending #BoycottBravo hashtag, a legitimate concern for the star of a network whose most-highly-rated Housewives series features a cast made up exclusively of black women.

It’s not about race, it’s about style.” “The aesthetics of race is and always has been political and in this year when the high profile mass and individual murder of Black people has spawned a #BlackLivesMatter movement, some are understandably sensitive toward whites who want the ‘beauty’ without the brutality,'” Rooks wrote in an e-mail to FOX411. “Of course no one actually ‘owns’ a hairstyle but right now you won’t get a ‘you’re so adventurous and fashion forward’ nod and pass for trafficking in Black looks if you are not willing to at least comment on behalf of those for whom Black looks matter most.” “Kylie is expressing herself by wearing cornrows. Just because Kylie did not mention or hashtag #blacklivesmatter it’s an issue?” said Callahan. “Maybe she wore the cornrows to send that message?” Cornrows originated in the Caribbean and Africa, and ever since a bikini clad Bo Derek famously wore the hairstyle in 1979’s film, “10,” it has been a trend amongst women of varying races and ethnicities. But as Cohen’s star has risen, he’s moved from instigator to center stage: too often, the show is spent worrying whom Cohen will take down for no reason but pique. (It’s notable that Laverne Cox, one of Cohen’s two guests during the Stenberg segment, has said she was uncomfortable with the topic being raised.) If he’s going to categorize a dispute between two minors over contentious issues of race as “Jackhole” territory, he should at least be aware enough of the facts of the case to make a remark that makes sense.
