Zendaya Is Making One Girl's Dreams Come True After She Was Body-Shamed On Twitter
In case you haven't heard, the actress and musician is adding the title of fashion designer to her resumé with her new clothing line, Daya by Zendaya. The line is available in sizes up to 22 and reasonably priced at $18-$158. And better yet, the models she's been hiring actually represent the values behind the company. "We've got thick girls, we've got tall girls, we've got skinny girls, everybody! I want everyone to feel comfortable and confident," she told us in an interview. So when she was scrolling through Twitter last night and happened to see a beautiful girl getting body-shamed, she decided to step in.
Some troll, who has recently taken his tweet down, posted a photo of a young woman with the intention of shaming her for being overweight. Zendaya was having none of it, so she clapped back at the troll. "Stumbling across this is stupid shit, she is fine as hell," she wrote. And to go even further, she tweeted saying she wanted to offer the woman a modeling deal, "Can we find her @....I'd love for her to be a @dayabyzendaya model."
Stumbling across this is stupid shit, she is fine as hell head to toe and garunteed does't know you exist my man. As for her, slay on queen. https://t.co/7IKDJkaQ5F— Zendaya (@Zendaya) January 28, 2017
Can we find her @....I'd love for her to be a @dayabyzendaya model— Zendaya (@Zendaya) January 28, 2017
Of course the internet wasted no time in finding the girl, who goes by Honey Dip, and connected the two. And it just so happens, it's Honey Dip's dream to be a model.
im really speechless right now because becoming a plus size model has been my number one goal— honey dip (@_illestCee) January 28, 2017
@_illestCee We are ready, when you are!!!— Daya by Zendaya (@dayabyzendaya) January 28, 2017
Not only are we happy to see the support Zendaya was so quick to give, but we love seeing so many others showering the two young women with love and encouragement.
This isn't the first time Zendaya has dealt with body-shaming. She's been criticized for her weight on social media in the past and she's even spoken out against Modeliste Magazine after the magazine photoshopped her to look thinner. We hope more celebrities will use their platforms to encourage body positivity. Oh, and hiring more real girls as models is pretty fantastic too.
