On Wednesday, the 16-year-old reality TV star posted a picture on Twitter (see right), writing:
I miss my black hair I'm so bipolar :( pic.twitter.com/YMRFXwKju8— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) November 6, 2013
The comment did not sit well with observers who thought Jenner was too casual and flippant regarding a very serious mental illness.
One Twitter user wrote, “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.”
Another tweeted, “Kylie Jenner with her ‘i’m bipolar’ makes me sick.”
“That was 100% the dumbest and most ignorant use of the word bipolar,” noted a third commenter.
Jenner herself has not responded to her critics.
