A reality television personality is under fire for a tweet in which she talks about being "so bipolar." TheWrap.com reports that "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star Kylie Jenner sent out a tweet comparing changing her hair color to being bipolar.
Her tweet read: "I miss my black hair I’m so bipolar." The message included a photo of her with dark hair. The twitterverse reacted negatively, with one commenter writing, "No, you’re not ‘so bipolar,’ you’re indecisive … and a moron."
A spokesman for the National Alliance on Mental Illness called Jenner’s tweet "inappropriate" and "insensitive." Jenner hadn’t yet responded to the backlash, the story adds.
“She’s 16. It’s an inappropriate, insensitive expression, but it reflects the need for greater education and understanding about mental illness among all teens. Particularly because most mental illness emerges by age 14,” the NAMI spokesman said.
