Zendaya Reacts To Alexandra Shipp Playing Aaliyah in Lifetime Movie: 'I Hope She Doesn't Have To Deal With Half The Hate I Had To Deal With'

Zendaya Reacts To Alexandra Shipp Playing Aaliyah in Lifetime Movie: 'I Hope She Doesn't Have To Deal With Half The Hate I Had To Deal With'

Zendaya just could not be more awesome. She probably could, but as of this very moment, she’s the coolest person in our books.

The 17-year-old actress shared some wisdom on Instagram about the Aaliyah movie, why she dropped out and more.

“Let me just explain something. The reason why I chose not to do the Aaliyah movie had nothing to do with the haters or the people telling me I couldn’t do it, I wasn’t talented enough, or I wasn’t black enough. The main reasons were the production value wasn’t there, there were complications with the music rights, and I just felt like it wasn’t being handled delicately considering the situation,” Zendaya said.

She continued. “And I tried my best to reach out to the family on my own, and I wrote a letter, but I was unable to do so therefore I felt not morally OK with moving forward with the project. With all that being said, congratulations to the new woman playing Aaliyah. I only hope that she does not have to deal with half the hate I had to deal with. And remember that we are all human beings trying to do what we love to do. Let’s practice motivation and love, not discrimination and hate.”

In case you missed it, Alexandra Shipp was just announced as the new actress in the role.
