Kelly Osbourne Might Leave “Fashion Police” Because Giuliana Rancic Is A Jerk
After Zendaya clapped back at Giuliana Rancic for saying her Oscar dreadlocks smelled like “weed” or “patchouli oil,” Kelly Osbourne took to Twitter to clear her good name:
Im giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel. contactually Im not allowed to speak!

I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT. I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW! — Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) February 24, 2015
Osbourne and Zendaya are actually friends, and Osbourne seems like a decent person. You know, decent enough to not say casually racist things about a person that she’s hung out with maybe once or twice. If you watch the video and listen to the actual “weed” comment, you’ll notice that it is not delivered in Osbourne’s charming lilt, but the cutaway during said comment is confusing. It implicates Osbourne, when it was really Giuliana Rancic who flapped her jaw and said some sideways shit. Osbourne should stick to her guns and get out of that mess! Meanwhile, Rancic has followed up her weak Twitter apology with an apology video:
Here is a full transcript:
“I’d really like to address something that is weighing very heavy on my heart. I want to apologize for a comment that I made on last night’s Fashion Police about Zendaya’s hair. Now, as you know, Fashion Police is a show that pokes fun at celebrities in good spirit, but I do understand that something I said last night did cross the line. I just want everyone to know I didn’t intend to hurt anybody. But I have learned it is not my intent that matters, it’s the result. And the result is that people are offended, including Zendaya and that is not OK. Therefore, I want to say to Zendaya and anyone else out there that I have hurt, that I am so, so sincerely sorry. This really has been a learning experience for me. I’ve learned a lot today and this incident has taught me to be a lot more aware of cliches and stereotypes — how much damage they can do — and that I am responsible, as we all are, to not perpetuate them further. Thank you for listening.”
