Kim Kardashian and Zendaya Respond to Critics in the Best Way Possible

When you are as famous as both Kim Kardashian and Zendaya, there is no doubt that you will receive your fair share of criticism. Over the years, both women have been subjected to people voicing their negative opinions, yet they have a way of letting it roll right off their backs.

We have seen Kardashian take backlash for everything from motherhood to her business endeavors, and we have to say that we admire how she always manages to get the last laugh. For Zendaya, Elle reports that she never shies away from critics. She recently took backlash for her outfit choice at the Met Gala, with Lindsay Lohan posting insincere comments regarding her look to Instagram.

Not so long ago, both Kardashian and Zendaya read “mean tweets” about themselves on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and they were not exactly the nicest comments that could have been made. So, how did Kardashian and Zendaya respond to critics in the best way possible?

When you live your life in the public eye, it is pretty much guaranteed that everyone will have something to say regarding all that you do. Sometimes, it may even seem that no matter what, you are going to be criticized.

Over the years, Kardashian, as well as the members of her family, have been no stranger to negativity, with critics taking to social media and commenting about their fashion choices, their lifestyle, and even their relationships.

According to Hello Beautiful, Kim’s husband, rapper Kanye West, understands completely that criticism will always be part of their lives, but they just have to deal with it and move on. So, why do celebrities such as Kim and Zendaya face so much criticism?

Chances are, it is mainly because of social media. The forums are so accessible, and there are always people who are ready and willing to post hateful comments.

Kim and Zendaya don’t let the negativity bother them at all

As we know, it seems that Kardashian has a hand in just about everything, from reality television to politics. Zendaya keeps pretty busy as well, with Insider reporting that she has gone from a Disney star to one of the best actresses in Hollywood, has even written a book, and proved her talents with singing and dancing. As if that weren’t enough, she is a feminist and humanitarian as well.

Even with their huge fan bases, both women face backlash on a pretty regular basis. They never seem to let it get them down, often laughing it off and moving on to the next thing. Seems like Kardashian and Zendaya both realize that they must have a thick skin and take the negativity with a grain of salt.

How did Kim Kardashian and Zendaya respond to critics in the best way possible?

Fans of Jimmy Kimmel Live! are definitely familiar with the “mean tweets” segment of his show, in which celebrities read rude or nasty Twitter comments about themselves in front of the camera.

Recently, Kardashian and Zendaya appeared on the segment, with Kim reading a post saying that someone “would rather have poison ivy” planted inside their body than “hear another word about Kim.”

Zendaya read a comment that was just as insincere, with someone saying that her feet likely “smell like Funyuns.”

According to Entertainment Tonight, both celebrities had great comebacks, with Kardashian telling the person who wrote the post about her to “do it.” Zendaya, however, is getting the most attention with her quick-witted response, where she actually proves that her feet don’t smell like Funyuns by taking off her extremely expensive red-soled shoe and pointedly saying that they smell “like success.”

What a way for two of the most successful women we know to clap back at those internet trolls.
