Wow, really? “Difficult People” actress Julie Klausner body-shamed Zendaya after seeing the 19-year-old’s thin appearance at the 2016 Kids Choice Awards.

The 37-year-old comedienne took to Twitter to share her insightful criticisms. Some gems include calling Zendaya “a thinspo model for your impressionable tweens” and, for some reason, a “Jew-hater.”

Klausner also implied that the Sole of Daya founder is “starving herself down to the size of one of her elbows” and even dredged up the old “patchouli oil” feud with Giuliana Rancic.

The Disney teen star fired back the very next morning.

“Do you find this funny? I will write another paragraph to educate you as well #youreallywannabenext?” she tweeted.

Zendaya, who has always had a slim frame, followed it up with an inspirational statement about loving your body no matter how it is shaped.

The K.C. Undercover actress accessorized with a wide black choker, a bracelet, several rings, and a baby pink manicure that matched her dress.

Zendaya finished her ensemble with a pair of Charlotte Olympia “Precious” platform sandals, which get their name from the large crystal embellishments on the toes and heels.

Why the hate, Julie? It looks like Julie just couldn’t let the issue go. She refused to make either an apology or a non-apology and ended up facing backlash on Twitter.
