Despite Fighting Skinny-Shamers, Zendaya STILL Gets Criticized for Weight
After actress Julie Klausner saw Zendaya at this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards, she felt the need to tweet, “Zendaya’s ultimate retort to Giuliana Rancic is starving herself down to the size of one of her elbowz,” and “You don’t have to have an eating disorder to attend the Kids’ Choice Awards… but it helps!” WHAT THA–?!
The 20-year-old actress, who is naturally tall and skinny, fired back at the 38-year-old almost immediately and encouraged her followers to love their bodies NNW, tweeting back, “Now….everyone go look in the mirror at their beautiful body, and love that s*it #thickgirlswinning #skinnygirlswinning #weallwinning.”
But while the K.C. Undercover star obviously doesn’t let body-shamers get her down, some people still feel the need to attack her for being too thin.
@Zendaya shut the f up! st*p*d anorexic girl!

@Zendaya is the ugliest type of black girl, she has no butt, the body of a skinny white girl and a face like Miley Cyrus. No Red Lobster 4 U

As the Disney Channel star said in the past, all bodies are beautiful and there will sadly ALWAYS be those who try to bring others down to make themselves feel better. YOU’RE PERFECT JUST THE WAY YOU ARE, Z!!! *heart eye Emoji* *sassy girl Emoji*
These stars were also shamed for being too skinny…AND too fat:
