Zendaya started off her powerful statement by saying QUOTE, “As a black woman, as a light-skinned black woman, it’s important that I say, ‘Listen, I’m using my privilege and my platform to show you how much beauty there is in the African-American community.’” She went on to say this:

Another fan tweeted, “This is why she will always have my support. She always says what needs to be said.” While user Eva thanked Z for being so inspiring by tweeting, “Zendaya, you’re amazing and very inspiring. I love your self-love speech because everyone should practice this! Thank you queen!”
