ZENDAYA took some time during her acceptance to talk to the crowd about important current events, mainly in reference to the disaster occurring in Charlottesville, Virginia. Zendaya said: “With all the injustice and the hatred and everything that is happening not only in the world, but in our country right now, I need all you young people, I need all you guys to be educated, I need you to listen, I need you to pay attention.”
The Disney star continued: “And I need you to go ahead and understand that you have a voice and it is OK to use it when you see something bad happening. So make sure that you stay educated and that you do not let people tell you what you think you should feel. Because you are the leaders, you’re the future leaders of the world, you’re the future presidents, the future senators, and you guys are the ones who are gonna make this world better.” Watch her speech below and let us know what you think:
