Zendaya Blasts Hair Critics With Multiple Shots On Social Media

Actress Zendaya Coleman is apparently fed up with people criticizing her appearance — especially when it comes to her hair.

The 18-year-old KC Undercover star was targeted by critics Sunday night because of her BET Awards red carpet look and hairstyle.

However, based on her post-show responses and reactions via social media, it is clear that Zendaya refuses to remain silent about the negative criticism and comments any longer.

Instead of posting a single tweet or Facebook rant, Zendaya found several different ways to keep firing shots at the critics relentlessly — and she did not delete a single one.

Moments before the BET Awards even started Sunday night, Zendaya posted a tweet with two selfies that spoke volumes — letting critics know that she was not playing games right from the start.

Zendaya followed up her tweet by retweeting some of the reports that appreciated and enjoyed her red-carpet look, as if to allow that positive spotlight to outshine the negativity. Less than an hour into the live broadcast, the former Shake It Up star posted a picture of her “over-the-shoulder” look on the red carpet, both on Instagram.


With another Instagram photo from the red carpet, Zendaya boldly made it clear how she personally felt about her look at the BET Awards.


Long after the show ended, Zendaya Coleman fired another shot at her critics and all of the people “hating out there.” She recorded herself taking off her wig — flipping and showing off her long hair.

On Monday, long after the BET Awards ceremony ended, Zendaya tweeted a selfie displaying a nonchalant smirk that also sent a major message to her critics and haters overall.

Giuliana Rancic, co-host of the hit celebrity fashion show Fashion Police, made headlines earlier this year by commenting on Zendaya’s hairstyle at the Oscars.

Zendaya later responded to Giuliana’s apology with a lengthy, “politically-correct” post accepting the apology and addressing other issues that were brought to light by the incident.
