Actress Gabrielle Union caught flack on Instagram.com after she revealed her lesbian crush on barely legal actress Zendaya Coleman.
The stepmother of 3 praised the 20-year-old's physical attributes, saying "Let us lift her up. [Love] this young woman."
"When I met @Zendaya I was struck by her poise and that smile and her laugh," Gabrielle gushed. "She is real. She is painfully polite. She is no pushover.
"My #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) is a special woman. Let us lift her up," she wrote.
But a few Twitter.com users criticized the 44-year-old for not uplifting a black woman instead.
When I met @Zendaya I was struck by her poise and that smile and her laugh. She is real. She is painfully polite. She is no pushover. She is clear on what she wants and does not suffer fools or wasted time. She is WOKE. She is a leader. She is compassionate. She is a triple threat. But I have to say it again, she's real. No BS about her. Maybe it's cuz she's from the Bay, maybe it's just who she is or maybe it's her amazing parents... My #WCW is a special woman. Let us lift her up. ? this young woman.
