Shake It Up! actress Zendaya has turned into an empowerment icon, as she's never afraid to stand up for herself, in a graceful manner and she does it all while becoming increasingly successful. This success includes being hired in the upcoming Spider Man reboot. Last weekend, comedienne Julie Klausner went on a body shaming Twitter rant against her after the Kids Choice Awards, and the actress isn't about to take it!

Last Saturday, Klausner, the lead actress and creator of Hulu's Difficult People, took to Twitter to trash the 19-year-old actress's figure after she won the Favorite Female TV Star award for her Disney Channel show, K.C. Undercover. In a series of tweets, the comedienne called the 19-year-old actress a "thinspo model" and suggested she had an eating disorder.

Not long afterwards, the young actress, visibly not very amused by the comments, took to Twitter to respond to a particularly unpleasant comment about her feud with E! News anchor Giuliana Rancic.

"Do you find this funny? I will write another paragraph to educate you as well," tweeted the young star, using the hashtag #youreallywannabenext.

While Zendaya has been retweeting support from fans since responding to Klausner, the 37-year-old comedienne has made it clear she's not about to backtrack from her original comments, saying she won't stop fighting those who "perpetuate dangerous beauty standards" and even mocking the possibility of getting schooled by Zendaya on body image issues.

Last year, Zendaya attended the Academy Awards wearing dreadlocks in her hair, and Rancic made a few comments viewed as racist towards her, such as saying that Zendaya looked like she smelled of patchouli oil. The actress stood up for herself in an open letter and Fashion Police, already on thin ice following the death of main star Joan Rivers, seemed to collapse all over, as Kelly Osbourne, Kathy Griffin and even Rancic all ultimately left the show, which went through a major overhaul afterwards.
