We actually can't believe that as fabulous as Zendaya looked at the 2015 BET Awards last night, there were still so many haters out there attacking her look! From her short wig to her height, there were so many aspects of Z's style that were being picked apart – and the actress wasn't about to stand for it.
When Zendaya walked the red carpet sporting a pixie cut wig and a sparkling shirt dress, she immediately started trending on Twitter: for both good and bad reasons. While her eye-catching hairstyle was definitely enough to get people buzzing, some people had really mean comments to say about her short style. Zendaya tweeted out the BEST reaction selfies to show that whether you liked her locks or not, she was unbothered.
Her message garnered enthusiastic retweets from tons of her Zendaya Defense Squad BFFs and supporters, including Fifth Harmony's Dinah Jane Hansen and Normani Hamilton.
For everyone who was still trippin' over Zendaya's short hair after her tweets went out, she also shared a Snapchat video where she whips off her wig and shrugs off the haters like a grade-A diva.

As if the hair criticism wasn't enough, Zendaya also had people calling her out for being tall. The star has always embraced her height, and she even confidently shared Instagram photos that accentuate how she looked like a total supermodel on the red carpet.

We love that Zendaya's not afraid to take a style risk or work what she's got – and the fact that she boldly sticks up for herself even when people decide to be mean.
