Zendaya hits back at Twitter trolls against parents

London: Model-actress Zendaya Coleman says she would "pray" for those people, who called her parents "ugly" on micro-blogging site Twitter.

The 18-year-old Disney starlet was left shocked after people made disparaging remarks about the appearance of her mother Claire Stoermer and father Kazembe Ajamu and in response she wrote a heartfelt message about how proud she is of her family, reported Female First.

One Twitter user originally shared a picture of the star with her parents and wrote, "they made a gorgeous ass child lol (sic)" and another replied saying: "her parents really ugly I really would cry (sic)."

Zendaya tweeted, "First I'm gonna pray for you. While you're so concerned about what my parents look like, please know that these are two of the most selfless people in the world.

"They have chosen to spend their entire life, not worried about trivial things such as looks and insulting people's parents on Twitter, but instead became educators who have dedicated their lives to teaching, cultivating and filling young shallow mind (one of the most important yet underpaid jobs we have).
