Oh Andy, why would you ever call a child a “Jackhole”?
During Watch What Happens Live on Sunday night, Bravo’s Andy Cohen labeled Amandla Stenberg his “Jackhole of the Day” for her feud with Kylie Jenner. In case you missed it, young Rue (Amandla’s character in Hunger Games) read miss Kylie her rights for wearing cornrows and appropriating Black culture without helping the #BlackLivesMatter cause.
Not only did Cohen give Stenberg the “Jackhole” award, he guest for the day, Lavern Cox and Andre Leon Talley, did have much to say on the name calling incident. Andy announced his decision saying, “Today’s Jackhole goes to the Instagram feud between Kylie Jenner and Hunger Games star/Jaden Smith’s prom date Amandla Stenberg, who criticized Kylie for her cornrows, calling it cultural appropriation.” He went on to ask, “White girls in cornrows … is it OK or nay, Laverne and Andre?” Talley answered, “To me, it’s fine.” And Cox replied, “Umm … Bo Derek.” Neither Lavern or Andre stuck up for Amandla.
In response to Andy’s insensitive remarks, Twitter has gone in asking everyone to #BoycottBRAVO.
Cohen has clapped back with a tweet expelling his stance.
And Cox did, too.
Do you think we should be boycotting Bravo and are folks overreacting to Andy’s comments?
