Zendaya has a message for all the haters.
The 18-year-old hit the BET Awards red carpet on Sunday night with a short, pixie-cut wig, but unfortunately, not everyone loved the look. Many dissed the star on social media, but the beauty fired back with this message.
“When people don’t like your hair but they tweetin bout you tho….. #idgaf #idgaf,” the “Replay” singer tweeted.
Zendaya also used the social media platform to address negative comments about her weight.
“Yes…I’m a tall 6’4″(with these heels) skinny glass of sparkling water and I love it.#bodylove,” she wrote.
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.”
