Giuliana Rancic Apologizes For Offensive Comments About Zendaya’s Hair

Dreadlocks don’t indicate a marijuana habit, and “E! News” host Giuliana Rancic learned that the hard way.

Rancic, 40, took a moment on yesterday’s “Fashion Police” to address the media storm calling out racism in her comments about 18-year-old Zendaya Coleman’s dreadlocks at the Academy Awards.

Zendaya herself even took to Twitter, typing an eloquent rebuttal to Rancic’s statement about how the star’s hair must smell like “patchouli oil” and “weed.”

Although the host previously tweeted an apology to Zendaya, she took an on-air moment to address her snafu.
