During last weekends Academy Award’s E! fashion correspondent Giuliana Rinic made the gawk heard round the world.
When actress Zendaya Coleman made her way to the red carpet wearing dread locs, Rancic said her dreads looked like the smelled of “patcholuli oil and weed.” Social media fired all weapons at Rancic over why they determined was a racist remark. I think it was less racists and more an ignorant attempt to come off funny on a segment of the show that’s aimed at cutting peoples appearances apart.
Regardless, Coleman released her own statement on Rancic’s remarks.
Rancic has since apologized.
