Zendaya Got Bodyshamed For Being Too Thin, And Hit Back Accordingly

Sometimes all it takes for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards to be relevant again is for a grown woman to body shame a 19-year-old actress for being just another piece of “thinspo” for “impressionable tweens.”

Just kidding, Nickleodeon, nobody cares about your award show, we just care about what went down when Zendaya got bodyshamed.

It all started so simply. Zendaya had just won the award for Favorite Female TV Star for her role in Disney’s K.C. Undercover, and The Hollywood Press ran this tweet about it:

Immediately things got complicated because Julie Klausner, star of Hulu series “Difficult People,” didn’t agree about Zendaya’s role model status.

For the record, this is what Zendaya looked like last year BEFORE Giuliana Rancic said that racist comment about Z’s faux dreds.

Clearly Julie is right: Z is super guilty of starving herself down to the size of one of her elbowz…not.

Julie went on:

Let’s just say Zendaya was not impressed:

Not that Julie was worried: 

Ultimately, even though Julie is right in thinking that some may look at photos of Zendaya and think that in order to be beautiful they need to look like that, Zendaya clearly has the bigger point here: instead of hating on other women or hating on ourselves, it would be great if women of all ages and sizes loved the skin they’re in.

Still, we can’t wait to see what that paragraph says.

$10 says it’s gonna be a knockout.
