Though Zendaya is legit perfect in my eyes, even she occasionally falls victim to a mishap. This time, the actor and singer suffered a bloody accident in the kitchen that required her to get stitches—and she just so happened to take her 148 million Instagram followers along for the ride.

“See now...this is why I don't cook,” she captioned the first picture she shared of the incident. In the image, you can see her finger wrapped up in a blood-stained bandage and a plaster. Are you also getting woozy, or is that just me?

Anyway, Zendaya then updated fans just an hour later and revealed that her finger actually had to be stitched by medical professionals, which, okay, if your yearly bloodwork is also one of your biggest stressors in life, you'd get how much my heart hurts for her.

“Baby's first stitches lol back to never cooking again ❤️,” she wrote alongside the final pic and tagged her assistant Darnell Appling.

As everything was happening, fans quickly took to Twitter to comment on the fact that the actor's boyfriend, Tom Holland, once revealed to Heart, “Every time [Zendaya] cooks, [she] comes millimeters from not chopping her fingers off, [but] her hand off.” Idk about you, but I personally would have loved to see what their texts were like yesterday as everything was happening—though I doubt Tom pulled an “I told you so” until after the coast was clear LOL.

Elsewhere in the Twitterverse, people pointed out that this isn't the first time Zendaya has bounced back from an emergency sitch, noting that she also had a v unfortunate incident the night before the 2017 Met Gala after having an allergic reaction.

However!!! The Spider-Man: No Way Home actor has had her fair share of good news, since earlier in the week she picked up three (!) Emmy noms. Plus she just earned the distinction of making Emmys history as the youngest producing nominee and as the youngest two-time lead acting nominee of all time, according to Variety. After hearing the news, Zendaya took to Instagram and shared the sweetest message:

“I’m so proud to work beside you and CONGRATULATIONS! I don’t have the words to express the love and gratitude I feel right now, all I can do is say thank you with all my heart! Thanks to everyone who connected with our show, it is an honor to share it with you. Thank you @samlev00 for everything you do, this show is what it is because of your heart, and thank you to @labrinth @marcellrev @hbo @a24 for being the best creative collaborators. Lastly thank you to the @televisionacademy for this incredible acknowledgment. We out here Emmy nominated again y’all!!!”

Honestly, even I'd trade in a few stitches for that truly incredible achievement. ❤️
