Zendaya passionately defends parents from Twitter trolls

Zendaya passionately defends parents from Twitter trolls - Zendaya has hit back at critics again on Twitter and this time she took to the micro-blogging website to defend her parents because someone said they are ugly.

Few days ago, a throwback photo of Zendaya and her parents, Claire Stoermer and Kazembe Ajamu Coleman, was tweeted by someone. The photo was apparently taken at a red carpet event.

The comment beneath the photo read, "They made a gorgeous ass child lol." Shortly after the photos were posted, the people start posting negative comments implying that it was unlikely someone so beautiful as Zendaya could have come from the two of them. One person said he would cry if he had Stoermer and Coleman as parents and these senseless comments forced Zendaya to respond to critics.

Zendaya, 18, responded by speaking directly to the person who posted the picture. In her first tweet she said she was going to pray for the person. Then she defended her parents by saying they are two of the most selfless people in the world.

"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."
