This isn’t the first time the Disney star has had to defend herself on social media. In February, the star slammed E! News’ Giuliana Rancic made some off-putting comments about her red carpet Academy Awards look.

While critiquing the 18-year-old’s awards show style, the Fashion Police host said Coleman’s locks made her “feel like she smells like patchouli oil. Or weed.” In a lengthy post, the Zendaya  responded:

“There is already harsh criticism of African American hair in society without the help of ignorant people who choose to judge others based on the curl of their hair,” she wrote. “My [me] wearing my hair in locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough.”

She continued, “To me, locs are a symbol of strength and beauty, almost like a lion’s mane. I suggest some people should listen to India Arie’s ‘I Am Not My Hair’ and contemplate a little before opening your mouth so quickly to judge.”
