You don’t want it with Zendaya Coleman! She’ll shut you down in the classiest way possible and shame you at the same time. She might make you question the entire way you see the world.
Zendaya just continues to remind us why she is simply one of our faves! The young star has an incredible sense of humor, and her intellect is as razor-sharp as the face she forever serves in every picture she snaps. Be devastated, haters!
Tons of people are probably their very worst selves when using social media because they can say pretty much whatever they want completely unchallenged and (usually) without consequence. It is incredibly easy to lash out when someone says something nasty to you online, but not Zendaya.
She has turned the other cheek more times than we can count. When Giuliana Rancic came for her after wearing some lovely dreadlocks she wore to the Oscars, Zendaya educated her. This week several people tried it by stating that her parents were ugly after someone posted a shot of the happy family at a red carpet event, complimenting her folks for making such a lovely daughter.
Here again was a perfect opportunity to snatch her detractors bald for making such a rude comment. Instead of slinging some sharp words at her incredibly shallow critic, Zendaya chose to respond to the nasty remarks with a surprising amount of kindness.
“First I’m gonna pray for you. While you’re so concerned about what my parents look like, please know that these are two of the most selfless people in the world. They have chosen to spend their entire life, not worried about trivial things such as looks and insulting people’s parents on Twitter, but instead became educators who have dedicated their lives to teaching, cultivating and filling young shallow mind. (One of the most important yet underpaid jobs we have).”
Zendaya even had some words of advice for them!
“Please, log out, go to school, hug a teacher and read a textbook,” Zendaya added. “And while you’re at it, go look in the mirror and know that you too are beautiful, because such hateful things only stem from internal struggles. Bless you.”

It was pretty thoughtful response given the fact that she’s got a tight schedule this week. The former Disney kid was busy being fabulous on the set of “Black-ish,” where she was bonding with the cast between scenes.
She was even cool enough to get the stamp of approval from Marsai Martin!
