It comes as no surprise another body shamer in Hollywood is taking aim at Zendaya for being too damn skinny, so she says.
This time it’s comedian, actress and writer, Julie Klausner, popular for her creation of the Hulu series “Difficult People.”
Klausner took to Twitter “hating” on the 19-year-old Disney star after she performed at the 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards and took home the award for Favorite Female TV Star.
Now, it’s not clear if Klausner’s angle for body shaming Zendaya was to become more prominent, or possibly get a few more followers and views on her segment, but she picked the wrong fight for sure.
Klausner, 37, tweeted that Zendaya is a “thinspo model for your impressionable tweens.”
“You don’t have to have an eating disorder to attend the Kids’ choice Awards..but it helps!’ she added.
Here are some of her “not funny at all” tweets.
Doesn’t she have something better to do? Zendaya has always been naturally small. All women are created different and beautiful in their own way.
Well, you better tread lightly when it comes to Zendaya. As a matter of fact, don’t come for her unless she sends for you because Zendaya’s not playing anymore.
“Do you find this funny? I will write another paragraph to educate you as well #youreallywannabenext?” Zendaya tweeted.
“Can’t wait,” Klausner responded.
Short, tall, plus size or petite, when did it become OK to judge someone on his or her weight?
Zendaya later returned to the keyboard schooling ole’ girl.
“Now…. everyone go look in the mirror at their beautiful body, and love that s–t #thickgirlswinning #skinnygirlswinning #weallwinning.”
Impressionable teens are watching social media like a hawk. If you’re putting out negative comments where you’re judging someone for being him or herself, ask yourself what kind of example are you leading.
“I will never stop criticizing celebs who perpetuate dangerous beauty standards for a generation of girls who grow up thinking they’re fat,” said Klausner. “And you know those public fat shamers who fake ‘concern’ for Melissa McCarthy’s health? Consider me your fire with fire,” she continued.
Can someone give Ms.Klausner two seats? No one asked for her opinion. If you’re not uplifting or helping, your voice should remain mute.
Especially judging from the tweets she later sent out, which had a bit of racism in them. Puh-lease!
Let’s leave Ms. Klausner with a few hashtags: #thickgirlswinning #skinnygirlswinning #weallwinning #heffasayWHAT
