Actress Gabrielle Union caught flack on 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 users criticized the 44-year-old for not uplifting a black woman instead.
