Zendaya Gets Apology From Giuliana Rancic

Zendaya received a Twitter apology from Giuliana Rancic for her recent comments on E!’s Fashion Police.

The 40-year-old TV personality was bashed for saying that the 18-year-old actress “smells like patchouli oil… or maybe weed” while criticizing her look at the 2015 Oscars.

“Dear @Zendaya, I’m sorry I offended you and others. I was referring to a bohemian chic look. Had NOTHING to do with race and NEVER would!!!” Giuliana wrote on Twitter.

The apology came after Zendaya wrote a long response to the controversial comments.

    Bullshit apology

    Giulianas comment was derogatory and negligent at the very least. I wouldn’t say she is a horrible person or a stone cold “racist,” but I think it is juvenile to pass off these types of comments as “a little misguided” or “comedic.” The thing about racist or homophobic or xenophobic or sexist etc comments is that most times they are not intended with malice! Usually they are thoughtless utterances; a reflection of one’s subconscious thoughts and value system. Thoughts which quite possibly are ingrained in a belief system that stems from generations of institutionalized bigotry, which is littered throughout our culture, that people try to mask with “political correctness.” I’m sure the comment was made in passing but that’s actually what worries me most.

    Giuliana, Please delete your flippant Twitter apology. It’s insulting. As a general tip: Be an example for your child and reflect on your remarks and take responsibility for your racism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism and whatever else, albeit unintended. It doesn’t make you a bad person it makes you a work in progress, whereas being in denial makes you an idiot. By the way – I’m even more disappointed as a fellow Terp.

      I definitely agree with you, Dee. I do not think that Guiliana is a racist, but her comment was rude. I think sometimes when you spend so much time on tv with a mic in front of you, you just sort of spout off without thinking. I’m not excusing what she said by any means, but I think she sort of just didn’t think before she spoke.
