Is Zendaya pregnant? Rumor spreads on social media after fake IG post
A bogus Instagram tale has gone viral on social media, leading some to believe that Euphoria star Zendaya is expecting Tom Holland’s child. If you’re still curious, the answer is no. Zendaya and Holland are one of Hollywood’s most popular couples, so word of their pregnancy was going to travel quickly. Despite all of the comments, jokes, and conjecture, it’s all based on very little – simply a simple phony Instagram post that was shared on TikTok and later revealed to be a complete fraud.
Several of these TikTok posts were made a few days before the rumor became widely circulated. “OMG Zendaya and her friends just announced that she is pregnant and tagged Tom Holland,” reads one video captioned with a random pregnancy scan.
Zendaya’s pregnancy rumors are sparked by a fake Instagram post
People who had been misled by the bogus post began to react to it soon after, especially on Twitter, and the Chinese whispers rapidly followed. Zendaya was one of the top Twitter trends on June 15, with many messages just expressing shock at the news – although bogus. Some Zendaya admirers expressed their dissatisfaction with her choice of Tom Holland over them on social media.
With all of these memes going viral, there will be a lot of people on social media today who are caught in and believe it’s true. To be clear, neither Zendaya nor Tom have made any public announcements about their pregnancy – it’s all a hoax based on a manipulated Instagram image that appeared to be on Zendaya’s official page. Similar celebrity hoaxes have also gone viral on social media this year, such as the rumor that ASAP Rocky had cheated on Rihanna, which was sparked by a single bogus post.
