Chalk it up to a lack of awareness surrounding the basic tenets of political correctness — or just a symptom of being a teenage reality star…but Kylie Jenner sure knows how to anger her followers on Twitter! The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star recently offended with an offhand remark about bipolar disorder.
One of the many problems regarding social media and teens in today’s society is that, sometimes, users just don’t know when to shut up! Unfortunately, the carelessness of adolescence has a way of being played out on a national stage, which is why, once again, Kylie Jenner is facing anger from her Twitter followers.
The latest drama began innocently enough, with Kylie complaining about her inability to decide on the perfect hair color. But her approach to addressing this horrifying issue was definitely problematic, as the celeb tweeted, “I miss my black hair, I’m so bipolar.”
The response to this allegedly cavalier assessment of a huge mental health problem was swift and angry. Kylie Jenner’s Twitter followers accused her of being a “moron,” and warning that, in the future, these controversial tweets could land the celeb in a heap of trouble.
Kylie has yet to respond to all the vitriol, but that’s probably a good thing. Knowing the Jenner girls, any attempt to address offended social media followers would only result in a major case of foot in mouth.
What do you think of Kylie Jenner’s Twitter flub? Is her casual referencing of bipolar disorder offensive? Or is this just a case of teenage cluelessness? Feel free to leave your opinion in the comments section below!
