Zendaya Flipping Off People In the UK? Her Peace Sign Oops Explained

Oops! Cultural blunder alert, courtesy of Zendaya, who it turns out was flipping off people when posing for pics with fans in the UK.

Who knew that a peace sign could mean a big f-you in the UK? Well...it's not the peace sign exclusively – two fingers held in a 'V' is, after all, the universal symbol for peace.

But the direction Zendaya had it facing was the issue. Evidently, making a peace sign with your palm facing towards you is a no-no. A fan pointed out Z's misstep and she had a little laugh about it – because, obvi, she had no idea she was offending anyone.

Z shared the tip with fans, writing: "That awkward moment when you've been putting up the peace sign all day but apparently I've been flipping people off #whyamijustlearningthis #woops"

She followed it up with a tweet that explained how we do it in the states: "Yeah...we use the middle finger"

Honest mistake, Z.
