Never talk about a black woman’s business (mind your own) and don’t you dare talk about her hair.
Obviously, E! Network anchor Giuliana Rancic didn’t get the memo during her journalist training, but she gon’ learn today.
Last night, a Twitter firestorm arose when a Vine video of Giuliana and her Fashion Police friends making fun of Zendaya Coleman’s Oscar red carpet hair choice hit the ‘net.
While Kelly Osbourne thought Zendaya’s red carpet look was the “biggest statement” of the night, Giuliana thought Zendaya’s faux locs smelled like essential oil and marijuana. The exact quote was actually, “This hair overwhelms her. I feel like she smells like patchouli oil … or weed. Maybe weed.”
Shortly thereafter, Giuliana’s Twitter mentions went up in flames like Andre Rison’s house in 1994. And we don’t feel bad for her.
The 40-year-old mother of one eventually apologized on Twitter and maintained her comment had “nothing to do with race,” but we all know she had nice things to say about Kylie Jenner’s faux locs the week prior. But that’s neither here nor there.
We wanted to celebrate black hair, young black women, and their right to choose any hairstyle they want without being ridiculed by the media.
So here’s to Zendaya Coleman and her 27 best hairspirations.
