While the Oscars red carpet served up a slew of gorgeous gowns, it wasn’t without controversy. Zendaya stepped out for Hollywood’s biggest night wearing dreadlock extensions that didn’t sit well with Fashion Police’sGuiliana Rancic who said she “smells like patchouli oil. Or, weed.” While the comment started a firestorm and even prompted Kelly Osbourne to question her position on the show, Zendaya took it in stride, responding with a poignant Instagram post. The starlet received loads of support from the likes of Taraji P. Henson, Solange, and many more to celebrate the beauty of African American hair and forgave Rancic for her comments. Melissa Rivers shared a #TBT snap of the star and her mother before she had passed, captioning it with, “We [at the show] have nothing but love for Zendaya then and now. A repeat guest host.” Judge not, lest ye be judged, we guess. [Instagram]
