Zendaya had some choice words for Twitter trolls who called her parents ugly.
Earlier this week, a Twitter user shared a photo of the 18-year-old star with her mother, Claire, and father, Kazembe, on the red carpet and responders began commenting on her parents' looks. Zendaya saw the back-and-forth and replied with a photo of her mom and dad, along with a message of love.
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). So please, log out, go to school, hug a teacher and read a textbook…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. - Me and my BEAUTIFUL family.
And that is how it's done.
