Zendaya Had The Perfect Response To Someone Who Called Her Parents "Ugly"

Once again, Zendaya has demonstrated how to deal with negativity in the classiest way possible.

Posted on

Everyone knows that Zendaya is the one true queen of the internet.

Whether she's sticking up for women everywhere or speaking out about cultural appropriation, Zendaya continues to use her platform to spread positivity and raise awareness of social issues.

It should come as no surprise, then, that her parents are as awesome as she is.

A Twitter user recently posted a picture of the happy family that quickly went viral.

The photo attracted several nasty comments, which prompted Zendaya to address the matter directly.

@bxxzy @pullupifubad her parents really ugly I really would cry

Rather than fight fire with fire, Zendaya took the opportunity to praise both her parents, who are teachers, as well as teachers everywhere.

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 dedicate their lives to teaching, cultivating and filling young shallow minds. (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
