Fat-shamers, take note. Zendaya isn't taking any of your bull. The "Rocky Blue" star scolded a body-shaming cyberbully and then offered the victim a modeling gig instead of weight loss. In fact, the Daya by Zendaya fashion house hired the plus-sized gal because, not in spite of obesity. The young girl who goes by "Honey Dip" is buzzing with joy to be noticed by the celebrity. But the issue highlights a growing trend in cyberbullying of plus-sized women.

Zendaya takes Twitter bully by the horns

When "Honey Dip" posted photos of herself on social media, a fellow Twitter user @StarPowerXCV mean-tweeted "Never trust a top half posing a -- female lmfao." Zendaya saw it and shot back "Stumbling across this is stupid sh*t ...

she is fine as hell head to toe and garunteed does't [sic] know you exist my man. As for her, slay on queen.” @StarPowerXCV removed the mean tweet, but not before Zendaya's 7.2 million fans read the epic takedown. The former celebrity of the Disney Channel was bullied herself by Giuliana Rancic over her dreads hairstyle. Kelly Osbourne stepped up to defend Zendaya and ended up quitting Fashion Police over the incident.

Zendaya Coleman hires plus-sized model

After calling out the Twitter heckler, Zendaya asked if representatives of her fashion line Daya by Zendaya could track down "Honey Dip." The fashion mogul then offered the young woman a job modeling with her company. Honey Dip (who looks a lot like a younger Blac Chyna), was thrilled and honored because she's been wanting model clothing for bigger women.

In her bio, she calls herself a plus-sized princess. She posted photos to Twitter with the hashtag #bigfinechallenge to showcase beautiful heavy girls.

Cyberbullying backfires thanks to Zendaya

There seems to be a growing trend of body shaming women and Celebrities online and on social media.

A Marie Claire writer, Callie Thorpe was harassed over honeymoon pictures in a bikini with cellulite and all. Miss Canada, Siera Bearchell was shamed for weight gain at the Miss Universe Pageant. But the fat-shaming is backfiring, as people show solidarity with victims instead of joining in on the torment.

Obesity is a fact of life, and a health hazard, as reality television show "My 600-lb Life" shows. But obese people need clothing too. They don't want to see stick-thin models, but people who look like them. So companies are courting plus-sized models, and online bullies are getting the picture that they mock weight gain at their own peril.
