The 2017 Teen Choice Awards had all the kiddies in a tizzy last night. Go inside to hear Zendaya’s powerful speech to the kiddies, plus red carpet flicks…
Zendaya can kill a menswear look, right?!
The Disney star rolled up to the blue carpet for the 2017 Teen Choice Awards held at the Galen Center in L.A. that aired live on FOX last night. The 20-year-old actress rocked a striped sequin Ashi Studio ensemble paired with Le Silla sandals.
The Spider-Man: Homecoming star scooped up the Choice Summer Movie Actress award for her role in the superhero movie. We all know Daya is no stranger to speaking out on social injustices, so it was no surprise she used her acceptance speech to speak to the kiddies in the audience about the current climate of racism and hate in our country.
"Spider-Man is about a young person and so right now I want to talk to all the young people in the audience right now," Daya told the audience. "With all the injustice and hatred and everything that is happening right now in the world and in our country. I need you to listen and pay attention and I need you to go ahead and understand you have a voice and it's OK to use it when you see something bad happening."
“So make sure that you stay educated and you do not let people tell you what you think you should feel, she continued. “You’re the future leaders of the world. You guys are the ones who will make this world better. I’m letting you all know right now, that you are the future, so take that very, very seriously.”
