The 30-year-old star says she is “seriously questioning staying on the show” after her co-host Giuliana Rancic made an offensive remark about her friend Zendaya Coleman’s dreadlocks at the Oscars. After receiving a lot of negative comments on Twitter, she wrote: “I WILL NOT BE DRAGED INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same!
“you guys do realize that @Zendaya is my friend right?
“Im giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel. contactually Im not allowed to speak!
“I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT. I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW! (Sic)”
Zendaya previously slammed Giuliana for saying “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil … or maybe weed” while critiquing her red carpet look at the Oscars on the E! series.
She wrote on Instagram: “To say that an 18-year-old young woman with locs (dreadlocks) must smell of patchouli oil or ‘weed’ is not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive.”
The 40-year-old star initially apologised on Twitter but following Kelly’s tweets she also issued a public apology to the young actress on E! News on Tuesday (24.02.15), saying: “Something I said last night did cross the line. I didn’t intend to hurt anybody, but I’ve learned it’s not my intent that matters, it’s the result.”
