Kendall Jenner's tweets have put the reality star on the war path of rock heiress Frances Cobain.

Consider it this week's edition of "The Young & the Privileged: Minor Celebrities."


Earlier this week, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star posted an emo tweet on the social networking site that happened to capture the attention of Cobain, 20, the daughter of rockers Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain.

"Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann," Jenner wrote in a post that has since been deleted. She didn't say much else about her woes at the time.

It should be noted that Jenner, the daughter of uber-successful Kardashian momager Kris Jenner and Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner, is wealthy, gorgeous and has a budding modeling and fashion design career, all at the tender age of 17.

Obviously, the young Kardashian was having a bad day and was just sharing that with her followers, but Twitter users just weren't having it, accusing the celebutante of being entitled and bratty. But to add insult to injury, Cobain chimed in to remind her that there were worse things in the world. Like really, really awful things that likely have nothing to do with whatever it was that originally bummed Jenner out...

In response, Cobain tweeted: "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," she added. Cobain then went on to call the aspiring model a "self-absorbed idiot," according to Gossip Cop and Fish Wrapper.

"I'd rather be a scumbag than a ... idiot. Praise high IQ's, good taste & awareness about the state of the world," she wrote, later adding, "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." (That "grams" part got her a tweet of approval from mom Courtney. And, side note, it's "drought" not "draught.")

Anyway, we're going to hazard a guess that that made Jenner feel a lot worse. At the time, she didn't respond but did delete her original tweet.

But by Thursday, she piped up again.

"an individuals feelings are relative to their environment. you don't know me, you don't even know what i was referring to," she wrote, according to E! News.

"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?" These tweets were captured in a screen grab from Gossip Cop.

No word yet on what Cobain thought of Kendall's rebuttal, but we're guessing this feud isn't going to end anytime soon.


And, as crazy as this is, the Ministry can't help but salivate at the thought of a showdown between their moms Kris and Courtney. Now that would be a relative environment we'd like to judge.
