“Zendaya just turned 26 last week, happy birthday,” the comedian said. “26 is a weird age in Hollywood. I mean, you’re young enough to play a high school student but too old to date Leonardo DiCaprio.”
The internet could not contain itself over the jab, with one Twitter user writing, "kenan calling out leonardo dicaprio at the emmy’s. i can sleep peacefully," while another penned, "KENAN DID NOT JUST MAKE A JOKE ABOUT LEONARDO DICAPRIO LIVE AT THE EMMYS."
One user could not believe the Kenan & Kel star went there, adding, "No way kenan thompson just jokes leo about only dating young girls," along with three crying emojis.

Social media has not been too kind to DiCaprio over his recent breakup from Camila Marrone, who turned 25 shortly before they split. “maybe leonardo dicaprio hated 9/11 so much that he can’t even date women who remember it. did that even occur to you,” one Twitter user wrote shortly after the news broke.
“maybe leonardo dicaprio feels bad for all the women who can’t rent a car until they are 25 and is actually a really good guy. did that ever occur to you," another jokingly wrote. “The girl Leonardo DiCaprio will dump when he’s 72 was born today."
The jokes didn't end there however, with one more person adding, “3 things are certain in life: – death – taxes – leonardo dicaprio breaking up with his girlfriend before her pre-frontal cortex has fully developed."
