    Zendaya: At age 19, she's way cooler than ANY of us...and she's probably the only person in the world who can get away with rocking a mullet.

    With such a rock star attitude, you better BELIEVE she is not going to stay quiet when it comes to shaming one's appearance — like when she wrote a powerful defense of her hair in response to comments made by Giuliana Rancic.

    So when comedian Julie Klausner started making comments about Zendaya's appearance during last night's Kids' Choice Awards...

    ...you better believe Zendaya was going to hit back HARD, but also with some grace and class. And she didn't disappoint!

    A bunch of other badass ladies came to Zendaya's defense, like Girl Meets World actress Rowan Blanchard...

    ...Mara Wilson...

    ...and author Roxane Gay.

    Her thread on the issue is pretty good and can be read here.

    FWIW, Klausner hasn't apologized for her comments...but did tweet she'll be "more thoughtful going forward."

    Slay 'em, Z!
