How can you come on National TV to say someone’s hair smells like marijuana?! How demeaning!
I wouldn’t know if it was E! Star Giuliana Rancic that said the derogatory statement about Zendaya’s hair but on the later’s Instagram page, it seems everyone is pointing fingers at Giuliana Rancic, E!’s red carpet Presenter.
Not many of us know who Zendaya is, so I will give a little bit of detail as to who she is and what she does.
Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman (born September 1, 1996), known simply as Zendaya, is an American actress, singer and dancer. She began performing at an early age with the dance group Future Shock Oakland. Early in 2013, Zendaya was cast on the sixteenth season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, becoming the show’s youngest contestant at 16 and placing runner-up.
Zendaya who appeared on the Oscars Red Carpet with locks looked very beautiful in her ensemble. Guiliani apparently spoke about Zendaya’s locs and it obviously didn’t go down well with the musician as she replied later to what she term as an “ignorant slur”
Zendaya took to her Instagram to reply and in my opinion, she gave the smartest, most blunt and detailed yet respectful reply. See the reply below.
Social media users are out in support of Zendaya, accusing Giuliana of being wrong concerning the statement.

Giuliana took to Twitter tweeting via her personal handle, apologising to Zendaya. See her tweet below.
Dear @Zendaya, I’m sorry I offended you and others. I was referring to a bohemian chic look. Had NOTHING to do with race and NEVER would!!!
