Giuliana Rancic made a remake on the tv-show Fashion Police, saying, "I feel like she smells like patchouli oil or maybe weed." An ignorant statement that sparked outrage on social media, especially in the natural hair community.
Although I've been a fan of Rancic, I was completely disgusted by her remake. Questions like, Why must our hair constantly be stereotyped? Why can't our hair be just hair? Why must black women be questioned when we embrace the diversity and beauty of our locs, kinks and curls?
I was very impressed by the way Zendaya handled the situation and responded eloquently. Check out her response below.
Loved seeing these strong, talented black women on the red carpet.
