Kylie Jenner's recent Instagram post has angered a Hunger Games star.

The 17-year-old uploaded a picture to her social networking page last week, showing herself pouting in the mirror while sporting a cornrow hairstyle.

But Amandla Stenberg, who plays Rue in Hunger Games, wasn't happy…

US outlet Vibe has screenshots of Amanda's response to Kylie's picture, which read: "When you appropriate black features and culture but fail to use your position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism #whitegirlsdoitbetter."

Kylie responded: "Mad if I don't, Mad if I do… Go hang w Jaden or something."

Jaden is a reference to Jaden Smith, a longtime friend of Kylie who also took Amandla, 16, to her prom earlier this year.
