This Is Why Skai Jackson Stood Up For Zayn Malik

Skai Jackson is opening up about her Twitter feud with Azealia Banks last year and why she felt compelled to speak up for Zayn Malik.

If you remember, the 14-year-old Bunk’d star called out the rapper after she made racist comments about Zayn.

“When I saw what she was doing, I was like, ‘This is not okay,’” Skai told Teen.com. “At first my mom was like, ‘What is going on? Why would you do that?’ But then she was proud of me for having my own voice. Even all of my friends, they were like, ‘Wow, you really stood up to her.’”

We love that Skai isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes is right.

    Kids like this make me have faith in this generation. These kids are smarter and more loving. I believe that if more adults were more like Skai, the world would be a better place. She has backbone. So sad that Azaelia attacked her like that but she held her own. Thank you Skai for defending Zayn against a bigot. You have a bright future ahead of you.
