Tyga has not defended his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, in her social media feud with “The Hunger Games” star Amandla Stenberg because he does not want “any more drama in his life,” the Hollywood Life reported, citing sources. Stenberg slammed the 17-year-old reality TV star after she posted a photo of herself sporting cornrows.
“Tyga can’t afford anymore drama in his life, so he’s not tweeting anything controversial for the time being. He’s supporting Kylie privately and has been reassuring her that all of this social media bullying is coming from jealousy,” a source told Hollywood Life.
Recently, Tyga has been accused of cheating on Jenner with transgender model Mia Isabella. The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star has not issued a statement about the alleged cheating, but Tyga had denied the entire scandal.
Meanwhile, singer Justin Bieber came to Jenner’s defense over the controversial Instagram picture.
“Guys leave her alone. We're all trying to figure it out, and she happens to be under a microscope! I’m the first to know this. But saying she’s being racist because she wants her hair in braids is ridiculous,” he wrote. “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.”
Stenberg criticized Jenner for neglecting “real” African-American culture by posting a photo in the new hairstyle.
"Black features are beautiful. Black women are not. White women are paragons of virtue and desire. Black women are objects of fetishism and brutality,” part of Stenberg's post read. She spoke out again on Monday.
End the "angry black girl" narrative. It's just another attempt to undermine certain perspectives. I have strong opinions. I am not angry.
