Happiest of Friday’s to ya.
Trump getting sonned by Arnold Schwarzenegger (if only he could terminate him.) isn’t the only thing that makes it a feel good end of the week.
Zendaya’s clapback game is also fierce, as we all know, and she exhibited it yet again recently.
When twitter user @_illestCee was being bullied by a troll for her weight, Daya swooped in for the rescue.
The K.C. Undercover star took her appreciation to another level by offering the buxom beauty a modeling gig with her brand.
Welp, that was easy.
Speaking of dreams coming true, 22-year-old Tierra Guinn is a aerospace engineer for Boening. Did we mention she’s only 22? Oh, and is still enrolled at M.I.T holding down a 5.0 GPA.
The rocket Guinn is building will be used at NASA.
And who says girls suck at math and science? Not with all these ‘hidden figures’ roaming around.
Finally, to end on a good note, is the cutest Daddy duty video ever. Soul Man star Wesley Jonathan posted an Instagram video of his wife teaching him how to do his daughter’s hair.
Take notes, Daddies.

Hidden Figures is the No. 1 movie for a reason.
One being people saw the untold tale of three brilliant Black chicks–Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae–using their magic to get a man in space more than once. Guilty!
And it’s a really inspiring history lesson that the young’ins can use. Especially now. However not everyone can afford that $20 movie ticket.
Enter our shero Octavia Spencer–who bought out a whole theater in Baldwin Hills, Cali on Saturday so families can enjoy it too.
The Academy Award nominee unknowingly jump started a pay-it-forward trend around the country.
A Georgia-based guidance counselor, Kahadija Oliver-Baker, at Jones County high school rounded up 76 of her students on Tuesday to see Hidden Figures.
Not only did she schedule the cheese buses to take them to and fro, but used her own money to get the tickets.
Baker told 41 NBC it was worth it to give her kids an “alternate learning experience.”
“The goal of education to learn the truth, and because their textbooks do not include the full truth.” She continued, “As a parent, as an educator, and as a woman I want to be sure that I help expose the truth to my students.”
The story of three African American women working in NASA’s space program isn’t found in students’ textbooks but it’s one she says still needs to be told.
“I think about my students like my own children and I would have been remiss to not bring about some type of change in order to get them here to the theater to experience this truth,” she said.
Michael Barnathan, film producer for The Help, was next to light the torch in exposing melanin magnificence.
Barbarian bought out two theaters and provided lunch for LA students to see Hidden Figures.
Let’s not break this chain of goodness.
