Have you ever wondered how celebrities respond to criticism? And how do they handle it? A lot of people hate celebrities due to their often hypocritical attitude toward life. They have more money than they can spend in a lifetime, yet they aren’t generous. This is what netizens and critics believe about celebrities, but that is not always correct. But only a few celebrities are capable of handling criticism as positively as Zendaya does.


Zendaya really is everywhere at the moment and it’s safe to say that the child star turned global icon has had a very busy few years! The actor is one of the most popular and most photographed young women on the planet, her on-screen talent and funny, glamorous off-screen personality along with her almost unbearably cute relationship with her Spider-Man co-star Tom Holland make her a valuable Hollywood power player.

Was The Dune 2 Star acting Shady?

Zendaya is an actress, singer, and dancer. She first got her start on the Disney dance-themed show Shake Up, which she joined at the age of 14. She has since been able to have a long career and has become even more of a star in her adulthood. Her full name is Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman, but she dropped her surname for her public persona. Despite the movie star wattage she radiates, she’s been a target for netizens a lot of times.

A video from the year 2018 reappeared in a recent TikTok which once again caused fans to criticize Zendaya for her behavior. Several viewers suspected that the Euphoria actress was acting quite “shady” in the video. Many shared the video as a meme template. One commenter, for instance, said, “When it’s early in the morning and you’re not a morning person but others are.” Some fans came to Zendaya’s defense too. One fan said, “I refuse to believe Zendaya is capable of being mean.” Have a look at the video and the memes!

The video that went viral featured the three actresses sitting alongside each other and enjoying a fashion show. However, during the show, Lively suddenly turned to have a light conversation with Blunt. This resulted in the two sharing a moment of laughter. It was at this point that Zendaya’s reaction was caught on camera. She appeared annoyed and stared, in what viewers considered a rude way, at Lively and Blunt.

Zendaya took to social media and confronted the trolls head-on. In a post, she clarified her actions and shut down the allegations of rudeness. The tweet emphasized her intention behind the stare and even clarified that it had nothing to do with Lively or Blunt. Zendaya replied to one of the tweets making the rounds and clarified, “First off, I was looking at the runway, asking when the show was gonna start, don’t do me.”

Fans of Zendaya swiftly rallied to her defense, expressing their support through comments on the video clip. Many asserted that Zendaya was merely focused on the fashion show and not intentionally gazing at Blake Lively and Emily Blunt. One fan commented, “She was just paying attention to the show, idk why people try and make such a big deal out of little things.” Another fan pointed out that Zendaya’s gaze was not directed toward the two actresses.

Later in 2021, Emily Blunt came forward in light of the events where she revealed once and for all that there was no “beef” between herself and Zendaya or Lively. The actress reportedly answered the said question while being attached to a lie-detector machine for Vanity Fair’s Lie Detector Test interview.
