"Hunger Games" star Amandla Stenberg criticized Taylor Swift and Madonna for "rampant" appropriation of black culture http://t.co/t7dLnIcPnt— billboard (@billboard) April 16, 2015
- amandla stenberg (rue from the hunger games RIP) put out a video three months ago on cultural appropriation of black culture on her tumblr.
- it's just gained traction in the past few days
- billboard tweeted today
- amandla replied
The way you are presenting this video is misleading and creates conflict instead of constructive convo! https://t.co/CfCfQvXY13— Amandla Stenberg (@amandlastenberg) April 16, 2015
Thanks @billboard, but this is not a petty criticism of Taylor Swift, who, btw, I love. This is about creating a dialogue between races.— Amandla Stenberg (@amandlastenberg) April 16, 2015
