Is Zendaya pregnant? Twitter rumor sparks pandemonium

Thousands of Zendaya fans have been well and truly “Krissed” after falling in love with an online rumor that Zendaya is pregnant with Tom Holland’s baby.

A viral trend fooling people on TikTok has crossed social media platforms and led to a flurry of Twitter memes and jokes, with many believing the hoax. Zendaya became a trending topic because of the rumor.

On TikTok, people are getting Krissed like fake stories on Spider-Man: No Coming Home co-stars Zendaya and Holland are torn, before Kris Jenner appears on screen to troll the Watcher and confirm the story was a hoax. Confirmation that the rumors were made up didn’t stop some people from believing them on Twitter.

Tweets openly asking, “Wait, Zendaya is pregnant?” gained tens of thousands of interactions with Twitter users. @kirawontmiss followed up her tweet by writing, “I need to know who your sources are because why is everyone on the [timeline] by saying that.”

“Someone shouted” Zendaya is pregnant “in Walmart and 20 [people] fell to their knees,” @ZERONlUM wrote on Twitter. Over 63,000 users liked the comment which also received thousands of comments and retweets. Continuing the joke, @ihyjuju tweeted separately, “zendaya PREGNANT?? I just fell to my knees in a Walmart.”

People reacted to the “news” on Twitter with messages of fake congratulations for the Dunes actress Zendaya, with accompanying videos including their true emotions – usually people reacting with devastation or anger.

“Zendaya only got pregnant to make me jealous tbh,” was a theme repeated by several users. @Sammerlammer’s tweet went viral when they repeated the statement, but included a photo of a man sitting in his underwear in a messy bedroom.

But how was this rumor born, which spun like wildfire?

TikTok was filled with people creating videos with the Krissed meme. Rumors of Zendaya and Tom Holland announcing their pregnancy, breakup or engagement surfaced, before the Kardashian matriarch appeared onscreen. She’s seen dancing to a speeded-up version of “Lady Marmalade.”

The videos start off quite convincingly, with clickbait titles and thumbnails before getting into the Instagram evidence supporting the story. Eventually, Jenner appears onscreen to confirm that the viewer was Krissed .

Somewhere between posting on TikTok and sharing on Twitter, the prank became a rumor, which then became fact, and then a joke to many.

TikTok videos simulate Instagram posts from Zendaya’s account. Some showed images of a sonogram, others of a hand showing an engagement ring. All the rumors seem to be completely made up as the last thing Zendaya posted was a red carpet video on June 10th.
