Zendaya snagged the awards for Choice Summer Movie Actress and Choice Breakout Movie Star at the Teen Choice Awards 2017 for her performance as MJ in the commercially successful movie Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The talented actress used her opportunity on stage to spread awareness on the Charlottesville violence. She said, “With all the injustice and hatred and everything that is happening, not only in the world but in our country right now, I need for you young people to be educated, I need you to listen, I need you to pay attention, and I need you to go ahead and understand you have a voice and it is OK to use it when you see something bad happening.”
