Zendaya inevitably looks bananas flawless at all times, as we generally note on this here website whenever she makes an appearance in public. But despite having a nigh-perfect red carpet look, Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osborne took the Academy Awards as an opportunity to make some straight-up racist-ass comments about her hair, which is currently in locs and utterly gorgeous. Zendaya, being the excellent, intelligent young woman she is, fired back with some smart tweets and in doing so, dropped the mic.
It all started on Fashion Police when Giuliana said that Zendaya's hair looked like it "smells like patchouli oil."
Osbourne chimed in, "Or weed." [Update: Osbourne has clarified that she did not make the weed comment.]
Zendaya's response, on Twitter:
Zendaya is excellent—in looks, in talent, in character— and Giuliana
and Kelly Osborne need to go away. (Also: Fashion Police needs some goddamn people of color, maybe fire them and hire some?)
