E! Host Giuliana Rancic took to air to apologies to Zendaya after her nasty racist remarks about Zendaya’s dreadlocks on ‘Fashion Police’
“I’d really like to address something that is weighing very heavy on my heart. I want to apologize for a comment that I made on last night’s “Fashion Police” about Zendaya’s hair.
Now as you know, “Fashion Police” is a show that pokes fun at celebrities in good spirit, but I do understand something I said last night did cross the line.
I just want everyone to know that I didn’t intend to hurt anybody. But I’ve learned it is not my intent that matters; it’s the result. And the result is that people are offended, including Zendaya. That is not OK.
Therefore, I want to say to Zendaya, and anyone else out there that I have hurt, that I am so, so sincerely sorry.
This really has been a learning experience for me — I’ve learned a lot today — and this incident has taught me to be a lot more aware of cliches and stereotypes, how much damage they can do, and that I am responsible, as we all are, to not perpetuate them further. Thank you for listening.” – Giuliana Rancic
