Why is it ok for Miley Cyrus to have cornrows but not Kylie Jenner?
Yesterday we reported on the huge shit storm that errupted after Kylie Jenner posted a photo of herself sporting a set of braids most commonly referred to as cornrows.

Subsequently the whole internet screamed accusations of "cultural appropriation" chiefly amongst the finger pointers was The Hunger Games starlet, Amandla Stenberg.

Whilst some people have just #KanyeShrug'd the debacle away, some are now asking why Kylie Jenner gets named and shamed but Miley Cyrus, who has also been seen wearing cornrows all this week, has been let off scot-free?
Maybe people are just giving Miley some slack, we mean, the internet did come down pretty hard on her last year after her whole 'wild Miley' phase was playing out. But it must be said that there feels like some double standards going on here...if you're going to condemn one girl for cultural appropriation you've got to condemn them all for doing the same thing.
