Because of society's insatiable appetite for drama that has nothing to do with Trump, we sometimes see shade where there is none. This week's victim of Shade Projection™: Disney Channel-turned-Spidey star Zendaya.
Side-eye-gate went down when Zendaya arrived at New York Fashion Week, looking like a flawless Carmen Sandiego.
Being a huge star, she was seated next to Blake Lively (who was seated next to Emily Blunt), and people thought they spotted Zendaya giving them major side-eye.
With every suspected side-eye comes the chorus of "YAS QUEENS!"
But Zendaya set the record straight: THE SHADE IS FAKE NEWS.
There even is footage of the moment from a different angle so you KNOW she's not lying.
It must be exhausting always having your eye movements analyzed.
While a Blake Lively-Zendaya feud (and a subsequent season of FX's Feud) would be delicious, today is sadly not the day.
