"Tweeting mean things about celebrities' appearances has been done. Let's go for their moms and dads."
Last weekend, a fellow human being of Earth tweeted a picture of Zendaya's parents and called them ugly:
Wow. Social media is truly changing the way we engage with lazy "your mom" jokes.
Now, Zendaya, of course, is not just an actor, singer, former Disney star, and Instagram role model. She's also a veteran of shutting down haters. She has eloquently called out the Fashion Police, posted a solidarity no-makeup selfie, and said a double "IDGAF" to people who didn't like her pixie haircut. And that was all before breakfast! (It wasn't.)
This time, she tweeted out a response and tagged the original poster along with two others whose charming additions included "her parents are really ugly I really would cry" and a screaming emoji.
Her full message says:
First, I'm gonna pray for you. While you're so concerned about what my parents look like, please know that these are two of the most selfless people in the world. They have chosen to spend their entire life, not worried about trivial things such as looks and insulting people's parents on Twitter, but instead became educators who have dedicate their lives to teaching, cultivating and filling young shallow minds. (One of the most important yet underpaid jobs we have) So please, log out, go to school, hug a teacher and read a textbook...and while you're at it, go look in the mirror and know that you too are beautiful, because such hateful things only stem from internal struggles. Bless you. - Me and my BEAUTIFUL family
Maybe only people born after 1995 should be allowed to tweet, because the rest of us can't handle the responsibility.
