Paul Mescal has awkward encounter with Zendaya at the SAG Awards

Oh the cringe…

Fans are not coping well following a very awkward moment between Paul Mescal and Zendaya at last night’s SAG Awards.

As the two approached the stage to present an award together, Paul took it upon himself to reach out his hand to help escort Zendaya up the steps to the stage.

But it became the cringiest moment of the award show after Zendaya quickly swerved his offer and walked to the stage without any help.

Anyone watching the show couldn’t cope with what they had just witnessed, with many taking to Twitter to share their reaction to the awkward moment.
