Zendaya, Julie Klausner Twitter Feud–Klausner Isn’t Body Shaming Zendaya But Doing This

By on

A day after Zendaya received the Kid?s Choice Award for Favorite Female TV Star – Kid?s Show, the teen actress got engaged in a Twitter feud with Julie Klausner in line with the acceptance speech of the former.

The exchange was rooted from the speech of Zendaya where she thanked her fans and mentioned that ?she doesn?t take the influence she?s been granted lightly,? as reported by US Magazine.

?I?ve been doing this for a long time, and I do it for you guys. I just want you to know that doing and making positive programming for young people is so important to me, and I will keep doing it. To all the parents out there, thank you for allowing me to be a role model for your children,? she said in the same report.

Meanwhile, Klausner did not take the speech very well, because apparently, she is known for raising awareness on the dangers eating disorders can inflict on the human body, especially to young ladies who aim to be thin and achieve the misguided standard of beauty. Her advocacy is obviously the main reason why the 37-year-old comedy actress reacted to Zendaya?s speech through her Twitter account.

?Zendaya?s ultimate retort to Giuliana Rancic is starving herself down to the size of her elbowz,? wrote Klausner. ?You don?t have to have an eating disorder to attend the Kids? Choice Awards? but it helps,? she added. The comedienne even stated that she will never ?stop criticizing celebs who perpetuate dangerous beauty standards for a generation of girls who grow up thinking they?re fat.?

Klausner even mentioned that she has nothing to do with Zendaya?s diet, and who she truly cares about are the girls who are trying to follow the teen actress? way of eating. ?I?m concerned with the generation of girls who aspire to look like Zendaya. I do not worry about Zendaya?s health or care whether she eats,? she said, as published by E! Online.

Because of the Twitter rants Klausner posted, Zendaya definitely did not choose to stay quiet and tweeted her response as well.

However, even after Zendaya opted to just talk about her amazing night, her fans did not stop and started bashing the comedy actress. But, Klausner immediately responded to the negative comments the fans pointed to her.

?FYI Zendaya and her fans are angry bc I insinuated this isn?t a healthy look. The end,? the comedienne wrote. Klausner even joked that they should not fight, and instead, just all agree that ?1) all women are beautiful and 2) Zendaya hates Jews??

After the slightly short Twitter exchange, there are no further updates from Zendaya?s side, while Julie Klausner further talked about the issue when she was approached by several activists. ?For those who have spoken to me respectfully about post-racialist bias I won?t apologize, non-apologize, delete tweets, backpedal, or refuse to own my shit. But, I will be more thoughtful going forward,? she said. Share you thoughts in the comment section below.
