Just when you thought we were done with women randomly criticizing other women's bodies, Difficult People creator Julie Klausner decided to go after Zendaya…the night of her Kids' Choice Award win. Nice.

What followed: multitudes of Zendaya fans trying to show Klausner why her way of thinking is problematic, Klausner escalating the situation by comparing Zendaya to Kim Jong Un, and finally, an uneasy truce.
