Zendaya’s response was a little more confusing. She initially praised Jenner for the shots by commenting on one of the pictures on IG. But after facing some backlash from her own fans for lauding the controversial images, Zendaya changed her opinion on the snaps. “At first, I saw more of an avatar look but thank y'all for keepin me on point....we all gotta stay aware of what image we project #lessons,” Zendaya said. Do you think Kylie’s response about the photos was adequate?
