Zendaya Is Offended By E! Fashion Police's Comments On Oscars 2015 Dreadlocks

Zendaya took to social media to slam Giuliana Rancic‘s comments about her 2015 Oscars look.

The dreadlocks sparked the 40-year-old TV personality to say that the 18-year-old actress “smells like patchouli oil… or maybe weed” on the latest episode of E!’s Fashion Police.

“There is a fine line between what is funny and dispectful. Someone said something about my hair at the Oscars that left me in awe. Not because I was relishing in rave outfit reviews, but because I was hit with ignorant slurs and pure disrespect. To say that an 18-year-old young woman with locs must smell of patchouli oil or “weed” is not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive. I don’t usually feel the need to respond to negative things but certain remarks cannot go unchecked,” Zendaya shared on Instagram.

    Team Zendaya all the way! Stop being so racist Guiliana! Damn!

  • Kayle

    Zendaya is right, the comments were in poor taste, completely offensive, and needed to be called out. These types of ignorant blanket statements are not acceptable.The twitter apology by Gulianne, managed to also offend the wearers “Bohemian Chic” with her “smelling like weed and oils” comment.

    • Joolz

      Guiliana just needs to shut up. Plain and simple.

    • Maria

      Have you EVER watched Fashion Police? They make comments just as harsh about white women ALL the time. That’s what the show is. Zendaya is being super sensitive. If you’re walking out in dreads to a big fashion event, you should be prepared for the, Hey Mon, comments. She’s lucky she got an apology; they never apologize to anyone else.

      • Clara

        Either way, that was racist and terrible. Just because it does happen a lot doesn’t mean it should

        • Maria

          How is that racist? Whites wear dreads too. How is that worse than Griffin saying Julianne Moore looked like sh-t, or other awful things Kelly said herself about others. Seriously.

  • Blu Soulstn

    Don’t sweat it girlie… They all agreed that lady Gagas was great when it was really retarded looking, red gloves looking like dishwashing gloves. Their opinions aren’t really trustworthy

    • Joolz

      Yeah. Who’s to say they are experts in fashion?! Yeah they did look like dishwashing gloves. Lol.

  • Sassy Fox

    Love Zendaya, & she looks beautiful with her hair like that. Giuliani, is just ignorant, & who cares what she thinks! She’s a nobody.

  • Acrimony01

    Who cares what skeletor thinks? She’s a disgusting useless nobody who clings to the coattails of people who actually have talent. With the exception of the Soup, E! is a giant pile of trash and should be dealt with accordingly

  • Acrimony01

    I find it funny that four incredibly ugly people (Skeletor. red-flag purple haired monster, plastic surgery face 1.0 and 2.0 and a mean-spirited gay man) think they know how people are supposed to look. At least Joan and Georgi were funny. They should kill this show now, because they just kept the worst elements of it.

  • Alicia Maria Kozlowski

    In the immortal words of Nelson Muntz “Ha-Ha!”

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Zendaya is a nobody loser. She needs to burn that trashy wig and shower many times. And shut up.

    Guiliana Rancic is a loser who needs to eat a darn cheeseburger. And shut up.

    Kelly Osbourne is a loser and a liar. And should shut up.

    There was no racism.

    E is for the ignorant.

    Disney breeds has beens before they are 18.

    Their fans are all fools too.
