Zendaya Appears to Be Masturbating on This Magazine Cover

Zendaya Coleman is no stranger to controversy.

Over the past several months, the 19-year old has called out a magazine for editing her photos... and also called out Giuliana Rancic for criticizing her appearance at the Academy Awards.

But this is a new and different scandal for the young actress.

Zendaya covers the summer issue of Magazine, posing for the publication in a dress with her head tilted back.

Her left hand is covering a breast and her right hand is in between her legs ... and that’s where the controversy comes in.

It sure does look like Zendaya is pleasuring herself, doesnt it? We're not sure how else to interpret this photo.

And we aren't alone in this assessment.

“Did y’all purposely pick a cover that looks like a little girl touching herself?” wrote one Instagram user, adding very simply: “Sick!!!”

Wrote another critic: “@zendaya Shame on you."

Made aware of the comments, the actress/singer/model - who often speaks out about cultural pride, female empowerment and Internet trolling - took to her own social media account and acknowledged the criticism.

She understands where it's coming from.

“I see what y’all saying by the hand placement lmao,” she wrote in response. “But that was not intentional you little pervs.”

We find that hard to believe.

But we also wonder: is a double standard at play here?

Nobody gave Justin Bieber a hard time for grabbing his penis recently? They just considered it a sexy pose by the singer.

So even if is Zendaya intentionally striking an X-rated pose, why should she receive flak when a male celebrity simply received props?
