Instead, she took to Instagram to share her feelings about the statement with her 5.1 million followers. With confidence and class Zendaya said:
“To say that an 18-year-old young woman with locs must smell of patchouli oil or ‘weed’ is not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive. I don’t usually feel the need to respond to negative things but certain remarks cannot go unchecked.” She further went on to conclude the post with, “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.”
Preach Zendaya and let the church say amen!
