Kelly Osbourne said she doesn’t want to be blamed for Giuliana Rancic’s comment about a black actress smelling like weed because she wore her hair in dreadlocks on the red carpet.
“Don’t compare me to her,” Osbourne said in an interview Sunday night. “I will never admit to liking Giuliana because I don’t.”
“I don’t think she’s a good person and I think she’s a liar.”
After several years of hosting “Fashion Police” together, Osbourne quit after Rancic commented that Zendaya’s hair looked like it smelled like weed on the red carpet at the Academy Awards. (RELATED: Kelly Osbourne To Donald Trump: ‘If You Kick Out Every Latino, Who Is Going To Clean Toilets?’)
“I feel that she smells like patchouli oil…or weed,” Rancic said. “Yea, maybe weed.”
Rancic later said her joke was edited out of context.
“I talked about patchouli oil, which is a hippie perfume. And in the editing process, some of the gestures I made, some of the things I said were taken out for time. I made peace signs, I said ‘bohemian’ twice—those were taken out for time.”
“So when the joke aired, some people were offended by it.” (RELATED: Kelly Osbourne Puts On A Wig, Mocks Rachel Dolezal)
