Zendaya broke her silence on *that* wild pregnancy rumor

Zendaya has broken her silence and addressed the wild TikTok rumor that she is pregnant Tom Holland‘s baby. Spoiler alert: she’s not impressed.

If I had a dollar for every viral TikTok video that was taken seriously when it definitely shouldn’t have been taken, I wouldn’t need a job.

Earlier this week, a fan made a TikTok prank video featuring a fake post purportedly taken from Zendaya’s Instagram.

The edited screenshot made it look like Zendaya had posted an ultrasound of a fetus, captioned, “I love you. Half way,” followed by an emoji in the heart and Tom Holland’s username.

When you watch the video in full, it becomes a GIF of Kris Jenner from the Kardashian’s cringe 2012 Christmas card with the caption: “You just got Krissed”.

If you haven’t come across this trend before, it’s basically the Gen Z version of Rickrolling, but with wild, totally untrue headlines and it’s everywhere now.

The TikTok joke spread like wildfire and as soon as it hit Twitter, #ZendayaPregnant started trending.

Of course, those who hadn’t seen the TikTok and only saw the hashtag then thought Zendaya was really pregnant, and from that point on things got out of hand.

Well, Zendaya has tackled the rumors with what sounds like a verbal eye-roll.

“Look now, this is why I’m off Twitter,” she wrote in an Instagram story.

“Just making things up for no reason… weekly.”

To be fair, the rumor isn’t coming from Twitter…although that’s for sure where people stopped treating it as a joke and started spreading it as fake news that it is.

Zendaya isn’t the first, and certainly won’t be the last, celebrity to face fake pregnancy rumors. At this point it’s like a rite of passage, frankly. Leave successful women alone and stop making all about their reproductive clock challenge.
