Zendaya Blasts Magazine for Thinning Her Thighs -- as If She Even Needed It! (PHOTO)

zendaya puerto rico photo shootRemember Zendaya kicking a*s in Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" video? Apparently, it wasn't ALL acting. Because when a magazine retouched a pic of Zendaya's body, she was all, "Oh, NO, you don't."

Recently, Zendaya went to Puerto Rico to do a shoot for Modeliste magazine. Sounds like fun. But apparently when Zendaya saw the final images, she did a double take.

Not because a pasty tourist in a Hawaiian shirt was photobombing the background. But because the mag had decided to make the actress's already-diminutive thighs and torso even smaller.

Is it possible that digital retouchers are paid by every pound or inch they remove?

Zendaya decided to make her displeasure with the pics public. (That's also called "going on social media.")

"Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated," she wrote. "These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have."

Besides asking the mag to do the right thing and take down the fake pics, she then posted the real picture on Instagram. Check it out.

Good for Zendaya. Not only for standing up for herself (and objecting to a retouching that isn't even that good), but for thinking of her fans -- many of whom are young, impressionable girls who actually laugh at the jokes on Shake It Up.

Hopefully, they'll pay closer attention to Zendaya's empowering message than they do to her fake thighs.
