Paris Jackson comes out in support of Zendaya critics

Paris Jackson has come out in support of Zendaya after people on social media criticised the actress saying that she couldn’t play Mary Jane in the next installment of Spiderman because she is black!!! Jackson has been outspoken in the past about the views expressed by some when Zendaya was cast in the role but on Tuesday she actively came out in support of the star.

A user on social media suggested that Zendaya had only been cast in the role because she was black saying ‘God forbid they hire someone based off their talent instead of their skin colour.’ Paris was quick respond saying that it can be much harder for ethnic minorities. She said ‘Unfortunately some people have to work harder to get recognition for their talent.’ Adding ‘Sick world we live in. Zendaya still slays as usual.’

Zendaya herself has spoken out about the issues in the past saying that it’s no surprise that people are going to slate her, despite the fact that America is a very ethnically diverse country. ‘Of course there’s going to be outrage over that because for some reason some people just aren’t ready. I’m like, ‘I don’t know what America you live in, but from what I see when I walk outside my streets of New York right now, I see lots of diversity and I see the real world and it’s beautiful, and that’s what should be reflected and that’s what is reflected so you’re just going to have to get over it.’
