Looks like Kylie Jenner is finally getting to do something her age mates do for the first time in a long time and that's fighting over something as irrelevant as a hairstyle on the internet.

The 17-year-old reality star got into a heated online fight with 'Hunger Games' actress, Amandla Stenberg on July 11 because of her braids.

On Saturday, Jenner unveiled brunette cornrows via her Instagram just two days after dying her hair blue. She captioned: "I woke up like disss."

Shortly after her post went up, actress Amandla, 16, commented: "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.''

It didn't take long before Kylie fired back with this tweet: "Mad if I don't, Mad if I do…. Go hang w Jaden or something."
