Kelly Osbourne Leaves 'Fashion Police'
Days after "Fashion Police" co-host Kelly Osbourne threatened to quit the show following a scandal involving co-host Giuliana Rancic and Disney star Zendaya Coleman, she quit OR, as we believe to true, she was fired. "Kelly Osbourne is departing E!'s 'Fashion Police' to pursue other opportunities, and we would like to thank her for her many contributions to the series over the past five years," the network confirmed in a statement. “'Fashion Police' will return, as scheduled, on Friday, March 30th at 9 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement." The Internet became offended after Monday’s episode when Giuliana critiqued Zendaya’s faux dreadlocks on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, saying she felt that the 18-year-old actress smelled like “patchouli oil” and “weed.” Zendaya immediately called out the implied racial stereotype as “ignorant.” “There is already a harsh criticism of African American hair in society without the help of ignorant people who choose to judge others based on the curl of their hair,” she wrote in a long Instagram message. Kelly, who said nothing on the show when Giuliana made the comment, started tweeting up a storm when the criticism arrived fast and harsh the following day. ”I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW!” she wrote. The Internet lit up with harsh criticism against Giuliana, who apologized on Twitter saying she meant it as a critique of “bohemian chic” style: “Had NOTHING to do with race and NEVER would!!!” She also offered an apology the next night on “E! News,” and told “Access Hollywood” that she didn’t even write the joke herself. Zendaya accepted it the apology with another lengthy Instagram statement. “Giuliana, I appreciate your apology and I’m glad it was a learning experience for you and for the network,” she wrote. “I hope that others negatively affected by her words can also find it in their hearts to accept her apology as well.” As far as "Fashion Police" goes, we hope E! just cancels it as most people hoped following Joan Rivers' death, because the show sucks now. Sorry.
