Keke Palmer has taken a stand for Zendaya Coleman after the announcement that she will be playing Aaliyah in the upcoming Lifetime biopic “Aaliyah: Princess Of R&B.”

Some haters surfaced after the announcement, and they don’t want to see Zendaya in the role. Here’s what Keke had to say about that:

I know from experience that it is not fun being attacked for doing what you love. Watch the movie first! People kill me attacking folks! Zendaya is perfect for Aaliyah. Quit playin’. I’ll never forget how I was unmercifully dragged when I was casted to play Chili! Now, that’s all I hear I look like!
