AceShowbiz - Zendaya Coleman has finally broken her silence one month after Lindsay Lohan threw major shade at her over her dress at this year's Met Gala. Rather than getting angry and hitting back at the "Mean Girls" star, the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" actress tried to be more understanding when asked about the matter in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.
Insisting that she didn't "feel hurt" by the diss, Zendaya said, "It didn't make me sad becase I have no idea what that person is going through. Maybe in some strange way, that comment made them feel better that day. People are only negative because negativity is eating away at them."
Lindsay faced backlash after she accused Zendaya of copying Claire Danes' 2016 Met Gala gown that could light up in the dark. Meanwhile, "The Greatest Showman" actress arrived at this year's event in a full-length gray dress that transformed into a pale blue gown when Law Roach waved a smoke-emitting wand.
"Claire Danes did that with [Zac Posen] already," Lindsay wrote on Instagram, stressing that the "Homeland" actress "wore this dress so beautifully, I don't know why someone thinks that they can be more chic. Ever."
Many of Zendaya fans quickly came to her defense at the time, pointing out that Lindsay didn't have the right to comment on Zendaya's dress when she herself wasn't even invited to the event. "Says the one who wasn't even invited and is probably sitting in her pajamas at home/rehab," one said, while some others dubbed her a "crackhead" and urged her to just "shut the f**k up."
Law, who helped style Zendaya's dress, has also previously responded to "The Parent Trap" actress' diss with a brief-yet-biting comment. Pulling a Mariah Carey when asked about it, the former "America's Next Top Model" judge said, "I don't know her."
