On December 19, Spider-Man: Far From Home's Zendaya (MJ) clapped back at a fan after they tweeted to ask her whether or not she was still alive.


Let's rewind.


First of all, to those who don't know, Zendaya is relatively less active on Twitter in comparison to other celebrities. For example, Zendaya only tweeted three times in December.

Of course, Zendaya's fans are aware of this and are constantly calling for her to be more active. However, this time round, Zendaya decided to reply to this particular fan who tweeted at Zendaya:

"are you like...alive @Zendaya."

This was Zendaya's response:

"You know, you can live and not tweet."

However, Zendaya's tweet received mixed responses from fans. There were fans who quickly commented that they missed her since she hadn't been tweeting lately, and how her tweets make them happy.

On the other hand, there were also several fans who were upset with Zendaya's response and called her out for being too harsh.

"you didn’t have to come at her like that."

"this dragging is unnecessary."

"why so mean sus."

Of course, this then led to an argument between fans as there were those who quickly leapt to Zendaya's defence, arguing that how often she chooses to tweet is solely her choice.

"Being on Twitter is a choice not a job. She'll tweet when she wants to, not just because y'all feel like she "needs" to be more active."

"Wow y'all...just because a famous person tweets less, it doesn't mean they hate you. Let the woman live her life how she wants, jeez. Being famous doesn't mean she owes you content on a constant basis. She's a human being."


One fan even loved how "mentally healthy" Zendaya sounded in her tweet.


Altogether, this isn't the first time Zendaya spoke out about the pressure of tweeting. In an interview with Vogue, Zendaya explained that she had to think about what to post and when to post because if it was implied incorrectly and negatively, it could accidentally lead to controversy.


Even fellow Spider-Man: Far From Home co-star, Tom Holland (Peter Parker), had gotten on the wrong side of fans after tweeting out an ad after a particularly long absence from Twitter (Read more about it here.)
