Kylie Jenner offended some people when she jokingly tweeted about being "bipolar" because of her ever-changing hair color.
The 16-year-old reality star -- who dyed a bottom layer of her hair blond, then blue, then a chestnut-brown last month -- tweeted Wednesday (Nov. 6) that she misses her jet-black tresses. Jenner said she was "bipolar."
"Kylie Jenner just tweeted 'I miss my black hair I'm so Bipolar:('. No, you're not 'so Bipolar', you're indecisive...and a moron," responded one blunt Twitter user. "Mental illnesses aren't adjectives," wrote another.
Still, some thought Jenner's bipolar comment spoke volumes about a larger societal issue. Alanna Bennett of Bustle elaborated:
[...] She’s a 16-year-old, and often what teenagers say is very much a parroting of the politics they observe elsewhere. Ignorance is infuriating, absolutely, and it should be pointed out; it’s also often the symptom of a much larger problem. The stigmatization and general lack of knowledge and/or discourse surrounding mental illness is, after all, a pretty huge issue, especially in the U.S. — it’s not just Kylie who has a lot to learn.
