Remember how after May’s Met Gala event, Lindsay Lohan took to Instagram to criticize Zendaya’s look. The Spiderman actress who rocked a Tommy Hilfiger glowing Cinderella gown had so many people praising her getup. But for Lohan, the look didn’t win her because she thought someone else had did it already and that too, in a way better way.
Well, Zendaya finally responded to those harsh comment. While she didn’t take the Mean Girls star’s name she made it clear who she was talking about. The 22-year-old told The Daily Telegraph, “I didn’t feel hurt by it and it didn’t make me sad because I have no idea what that person is going through.” She further added, “Maybe in some strange way, that comment made them feel better that day. People are only negative because negativity is eating away at them.”
We’ll have to stand back and clap for a moment because Zendaya managed to reply in such a sassy manner and fired shots of her own wrapped up in good intentions and emotions. Basically, when Instagram account @DisneyLifestylers had shared a picture of Zendaya, Lindsay Lohan left a comment saying, “Claire Danes did that with ZacPosen already.” She also tagged Danes to continue, “you wore this dress so beautifully. I don’t know why someone thinks that they can be more chic. Ever.”
Of course, when this happened Zendaya’s fans immediately came to her defense. Several slammed Lindsay for being jealous of someone who was so many years her junior. This is not the first time someone has been rude about Zendaya’s look. At the Oscars in 2015 when the former Disney actress wore a Vivienne Westwood ensemble in white with dreadlocks for a hairstyle, Giuliana Rancic who hosted Fashion Police back then insulted her.
Rancic indicated that Zendaya’s look made it seem like she smelled foul. In response, Zendaya said “My wearing my hair in locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough.” This made Rancic apologize to her. Do you think Lohan will apologize too for the criticism? Doesn’t seem so but who knows.
