Zendaya modeling gig to body shamerZendaya stepped up to the plate to prove that she means what she says when she discusses body positivity and loving yourself. The actress/activist/fashion designer recently offered a young lady that was being body shamed on the Internet the opportunity of a lifetime.

Twitter user @_illestCee shared the below photo, which ended up going viral for all the wrong reasons:

The Internet can be a mean place, as we all are aware, and the photos began circulating with people ridiculing her for her shape.

The viral photo made its way in front of Zendaya’s eyes and the body positive celebrity couldn’t let the body shaming continue:

Not only did she stand up for and compliment @_illestCee, but she took it a step further when she made the Twitter user’s dream come true by offering her the chance to modeling her Daya by Zendaya clothing line:

Daya by Zendaya is a collaboration between Zendaya Coleman and celebrity stylist Law Roach, and describes itself as a ” contemporary brand” that “is a diverse and unapologetic statement designed for all ages, shapes and nationalities!”

Way to go for Zendaya helping a beautiful young woman make her haters her motivators.
