If you love K.C. Undercover as much as we do, we're sure that you're thrilled that Zendaya decided to be a part of the show and return after spending several seasons on Disney Channel's Shake It Up. In a new interview, the star admitted that her decision to return to the network had a bigger purpose.
"The only way I was going to come back to the Disney Channel was if I was in a position of more power," she said. "One thing that is really important to me is diversity on the channel. It’s hard as a young person of a different ethnicity or background to look at the TV and not see anyone who looks like you. Representation is very important."
The star also recalled a very racially insensitive moment on a set that was the perfect example of what she's talking about.
"I didn’t like my hair and makeup one time on a photo shoot, and my publicist told me, ‘You should just be happy with it—they haven’t had a black girl on the cover since forever.’ She’s no longer my publicist."
