Social media, once again blew up this past weekend as one of the most talked about members of the Kardashian Klan, 17 year-old Kylie Jenner, uploaded a picture of herself, showing off a fresh full head of cornrows!
This led Jenner to be badgered by many via Instagram, primarily Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg. She campaigned against Jenner’s recent fashion stunt via Twitter calling it “…just another attempt to undermine certain perspectives” & asked Jenner to, “End the ‘angry black girl’ narrative.”
Now, in the wake of this, someone unexpected has come to her defense.
Justin Bieber Kylie Jenner Cornrow Defense
US Weekly reported Justin Bieber‘s response to all the hateful heat Jenner received thanks to this popular Instagram shot:
Bieber wrote, “Guys leave her alone, we’re all trying to figure it out and she happens to be under a microscope! Saying she’s being racist because she wants her hair in braids is ridiculous.“
“Let’s focus on the bigger picture. Instead of fighting over something stupid let’s do something about equality; doesn’t start here blasting a 17 year-old for wearing braids,” he added.
Moral of the story: “As long as you love [him]” Kylie, your good ol’ pal Justin Beiber will always have your back!
It should be noted that this is not the first time Jenner has come under fire, as earlier this year she took heat for wearing blackface.
