If there’s anything that Zendaya is more popular than beside her acting is her red carpet looks. The Disney star often makes such gorgeous appearances on red carpet events and steals the show with her breathtakingly beautiful wardrobe. Back in 2015, the Euphoria actress made an alluring entry at Osars donning dreadlocks and E! Fashion Police host, Giuliana Rancic made some disturbing comments on her.
For the unversed, Rancic made offensive comments on the young actresses’ hair and said they must smell like ‘weed’.
Guiliana Rancic said, “I love Zendaya’s style and I love when she has the little [pixie cut] hair — she just had it — I think she’s such a tiny frame that this hair to me overwhelms her. I feel like she smells like patchouli oil. Or weed. Maybe weed. It’s legal now. So that’s what I think, yeah, this look isn’t working.”

Later Zendaya shared a tweet on her official Twitter handle where she slammed the TV host and wrote, “There is a fine line between what is funny and disrespectful, Someone said something about my hair at the Oscars that left me in awe. Not because I was relishing in my rave 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 thing but certain remarks cannot go unchecked. I’ll have you know my father, brother best childhood friend and little cousins all have locs.”

Later, Guiliana Rancic apologised to the Euphoria actress in a tweet and wrote “I want to say to Zendaya that I am so sincerely sorry. I didn’t intend to hurt anybody, but I’ve learned it’s not my intent that matters. It’s the result.”
