Kylie Jenner Can Add "Insensitive" and "Ill-Spoken" to Her Repertoire Now

Just when you thought it was safe to avoid passing judgement on either or both of the Jenners (forget the Kardashians; the avoidance of judgement passing on those people is a fruitless, lost cause), Kylie Jenner gave you a real, tangible reason to think that she's a total moron who's completely out of touch with the real world -- and that's even despite the fact that she's 16 years old, and most of us were morons at 16 who were also completely out of touch with the real world.
The latest ridiculousness ensued on Kylie's Twitter earlier this afternoon when she posted photos of her formerly black hair, captioning them "I miss my black hair I'm so bipolar," adding a sad face for good measure so that -- DUH! -- everybody was obviously given the heads up that Kylie was legitimately sad about her no-longer-raven tresses.
The thing is, using the term "bipolar" to describe the regret that one fickle, spoiled, mini-egomaniac might genuinely feel is not only ignorant, but it's insulting as well. It's ignorant to think that a 16-year-old in this day and age -- this day and age where people are bullied over things ranging from their weight to their choice of dress to their mental illnesses, some of which might include bipolar disorder -- who's supposed to be "worldly" and "sophisticated" and "intelligent" (can we use quadruple quotes on that last one, friends? Would that be OK?) could use this term so flippantly, when she, herself, faces myriad scrutiny over many things on a daily basis.
Big, gross failure, Kylie Jenner. Not only should you be ashamed of yourself properly, you should also consider maybe apologizing on a global scale in addition. How thoughtless and embarrassing. 16 years old or not, you should know better than this.
