Zendaya read the tweet on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Celebrities Read Mean Tweets is exactly what it sounds like. A group of celebrities sit down and read mean tweets the general public wrote about them. After reading the tweet, they react, usually in a hilarious way.

When it was Zendaya’s turn she read out a tweet that said, “I bet Zendaya feet smell like Funyuns.”

Zendaya then looked at the camera and said, “Let’s check, shall we?” She then proceeded to take off her Louboutin heel and smell it. As she did, she made sure to flash the red bottom of the shoe.

After smelling the inside of the shoe, Zendaya said, “Nope, smells like success to me.” She then proceeded to flash the red bottom of the shoe one more time before placing it back on her foot.

Fans loved Zendaya’s clapback to the mean tweet

After the episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! aired, social media users complimented Zendaya’s comeback. The actress has a lot of fans already, but her clapback seemed to earn her a few more.

“Zendaya in the newest Mean Tweets video is amazing,” a Twitter user wrote.

“zendaya flashing her louboutin’s on mean tweets after someone tweeted that her feet smell has the kind of energy i need in my life,” another wrote.

“#Zendaya just won mean tweets. Legend,” a fan tweeted.

This is not the first time Zendaya was a pro at comebacks

Whoever wrote the tweet about Zendaya should have known better. In the past, Zendaya has had no problem putting disrespectful people in their place. Zendaya knows her worth and is not going to let anybody try and convince her otherwise.

Earlier in the year, a Twitter user replied to one of Zendaya’s posts. In the now-deleted tweet, they commented “Not my MJ” referencing Zendaya’s role in the Spider-Man franchise in the MCU.

Zendaya simply replied, “Too late.”

In 2017, a Twitter user wrote, “Zendaya kinda conceited.”

Zendaya replied, “Lil bit.”

The actress earned rave reviews for her role in ‘Euphoria’

Zendaya is one of the leads in HBO’s Euphoria. In the show, Zendaya plays Rue, a 17-year-old recovering drug addict. Zendaya’s role in the show earned critical acclaim.

The critical consensus for the show on Rotten Tomatoes reads, “Though at times hard to watch, Euphoria balances its brutal honesty with an empathetic — and visually gorgeous — eye to create a uniquely challenging and illuminating series, held together by a powerfully understated performance from Zendaya.”

The first season of the show consisted of eight episodes. In July 2019, Euphoria was renewed for a second season. The show also stars Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith, and Sydney Sweeney.
