Zendaya has responded to Giuliana Rancic’s apology over ‘racist’ comments the E! presenter made about her hairstyle. See our previous report detailing all that has been happening!
According to Mail Online, while the 18-year-old said she appreciated Rancic’s apology for saying her dreadlocks must have smelt of ‘weed’ and ‘patchouli oil’, she criticized the nature of the show Fashion Police.
‘Body shaming and other hurtful tactics will never get the job done,’ Zendaya said in a statement, adding that she was ‘glad’ it was a learning experience for 40-year-old Rancic and the E! Network.
Scandal actress Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and reality star Khloe Kardashian had also come to the teen star’s defence, sending messages of support on Twitter.
