Zendaya has found herself in yet another hairy situation.

After her dreadlocks at the 2015 Academy Awards caused an uproar on Fashion Police, the 18-year-old singer/actress' new look at the 2015 BET Awards also caused a bit of uproar on social media.

Debuting a super short style on Sunday night, several of her 5.6 million Twitter followers weren't so keen on her hair. 

"Zendaya and these Mommy Wigs. Nah girl," one Twitter user wrote.

"Zendaya has had better days," read another tweet.

Some tweets compared Zendaya's 'do to the cartoon character Mandark from Dexter's Laboratory.

The Shake It Up star responded to the negative reviews by tweeting pics of her both happy and sad. "When people don't like your hair but they tweetin' bout you tho," she wrote.

To the delight of her fans, Zendaya also posted a video of her whipping off her wig and revealing her real hair.

On the red carpet, the actress spoke to ET about her evolving looks. "Everyone knows I like to change my hairstyle every other day, so I wanted to be short today -- and that's why! It also has a lot to do with the outfit,” Zendaya said of her hair. “When you have so much going on, I wanted to keep everything else simple, you know? My stylist and I were like, 'Short hair. Minimal accessories. Keep it simple.'"
