Matt Rife’s cringeworthy behavior towards Zendaya resurfaces amid Netflix backlash.

So, turns out Matt Rife, the comedian with his Netflix special, has some skeletons in his closet. And by skeletons, I mean some seriously “trash” behavior towards Zendaya back in 2015.

According to reports, Matt allegedly said to Zendaya, “You’re mixed, I wanna be Black, let’s make a lifestyle movie,” before grabbing her face. Um, excuse me? What kind of pick-up line is that? It’s like he watched one too many rom-coms and thought this was his ticket to charmville. Newsflash, dude, it’s not. It’s actually super cringy and offensive.

And now, with all the heat around his Netflix special, this incident has come back to bite him in the butt. People on social media are calling him out for his past behavior, and it’s not looking good for him.

I mean, come on, Matt. You’re supposed to be a comedian, not a creep. Get your act together, man. And maybe, just maybe, apologize to Zendaya while you’re at it.

But seriously, this kind of behavior is not cool. It’s 2023, and we should all know better. Let’s leave the trashy behavior in the past where it belongs, shall we? And Matt, if you’re reading this, take some notes on how not to be a total jerk.

Zendaya, on the other hand, is out here being a total queen, slaying the game. We stan a classy, talented, and unbothered queen. Matt could learn a thing or two from her. Just saying.

So there you have it, folks. Matt Rife’s past coming back to haunt him, and rightfully so. Let’s hope he learns from this and becomes a better person. And maybe, just maybe, we can all move on from this messy situation.

But until then, let’s keep calling out trash behavior when we see it. Because at the end of the day, it’s not cool, and it’s definitely not funny.
