If ever there were two young people whose paths we would not expect to cross, it's Kendall Jenner and Frances Bean Cobain. But for some reason, the two got caught up in a Twitter feud this week, and while much of it has been taken down, it was up for long enough to be captured by that unforgiving all-seer known as the internet.

It began earlier this week, when Jenner tweeted the following:

“Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann.”

This apparently rubbed Cobain the wrong way, because she wrote back:

“@KendallJenner oh shh. There are kids on earth abandoned&homeless who forcibly drink contaminated water because clean water isn’t accessible…. oh ya, not to mention, CANCER, famine, poverty, draught, disease, natural disasters, Death. Fuck, Humans are so self involved…. rather be a scumbag than a fucking idiot. Praise high IQ’s, good taste & awareness about the state of the world…. I’d like to thank my parents for providing me with a high IQ & I’d like to thank my grams for encouraging me not to be a self absorbed idiot.”

In response, Jenner took two days to think things through, then hit hard with these tweets:

"An individuals feelings are relative to their environment...You don't know me, you don't even know what I was referring to...I am aware that i am very privileged and blessed, and im thankful for that everyday, i know there are greater problems in the world...I pray for those people every night and give back as much as i can. So who are u to judge me?"

No word from Cobain again, but this doesn't seem like the type of thing that anybody will let lie. Lines in sand: Drawn.
