Zendaya DENIES being pregnant after TikTok hoax claiming she was expecting her first child goes viral: ‘Just making stuff up for no reason’

  • Zendaya, 25, said people were ‘just making stuff up’ after pregnancy prank
  • The original clip showed a fake sonogram with her profile image photoshopped
  • The video revealed it was a joke at the end
  • But Twitter users took it for real after it migrated platforms without context 

Zendaya has weighed in after a TikTok prank that claimed she was pregnant went viral.

The video, which appears to have popped up earlier this week, featured a fake sonogram photo that was photoshopped to look as if the 25-year-old actress had posted it herself.

But the Euphoria star took to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday to set the story straight, complaining that people are ‘just making stuff up for no reason.’ 

The original TikTok videos were part of a prank called getting ‘Krissed.’

The clips opened with an image of a fake sonogram image showing a fetus, with Zendaya’s profile image photoshopped in to make it look as if she had posted the picture. 

‘I love you. Halfway there,’ read the fake caption that was meant to look as if the actress had written it.

A fake comment with heart emojis from Marisa Tomei was even added to make the image look more real. 

Bad timing: 'See now, this is why I stay off Twitter...' she wrote. Although TikTok users understood the pregnancy post to be a prank, it apparently fooled Twitter users after migrating platforms

‘You just got Krissed! Send this to your friends to #Kris them!!’ the video text read, but some users who saw the clip didn’t understand that it was a joke, especially after it started popping up on Twitter, where the format apparently wasn’t as common.

The prank has been previously to briefly fool viewers into believing a hoax, only to reveal that it was false at the end. 

Rapper Lil Nas X was reliably hilarious as he reacted to the prank on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

‘i hate twitter because i’m sitting her about to congratulate zendaya via dm about a baby that doesn’t exist,’ he joked. 

Another Twitter users included a popular Watchmen meme to make sense of the TikTok post.

‘Zendaya pregnant news,’ they wrote, then included a popular comic panel with a woman saying, ‘Source?’ while a glowing Dr. Atomic says, ‘I made it up.’

One person joked, ‘I just fell to my knees in a walmart’ after seeing the prank post.

The viral hoax seems to have taken off partly because of the interest fans have in Zendaya and her boyfriend Tom Holland, who starred with her in the last three Spider-Man films as the title character.

On June 1, the former Disney Channel star posted a sweet black-and-white photo of the English actor embracing her from behind as she beamed ear-to-ear while she celebrated his 26th birthday.
