Zendaya may only be 18 years old, but she sure knows how to stick up for herself.

On February 24, the singer and actress posted a long note criticizing red carpet correspondent Giuliana Rancic for an “ignorant slur” the host made about her dreadlocks at Sunday’s Oscars.

Sheesh…we can see why the KIDZ BOP alum would be upset.

In response to the questionable comment, Zendaya posted the well-written response (below)!

Wow! Well said!

Shortly after the post went up, Rancic replied with a short but sweet explanation:

Well, we’re glad Duke‘s momma addressed her remarks and hopefully she will learn from her mistake.

So, do YOU think Rancic’s comment was racist?
