Kelly Osbourne is considering quitting Fashion Police.

The 30-year-old star has been on the panel of the E! show since 2011. However, Kelly revealed to fans that her co-host Giuliana Rancic’s comments about Zendaya’s Oscars hair had made her seriously reconsider if she wants to continue as part of the programme.

Zendaya (18) looked stunning at the Academy Awards, teaming her off-the-shoulder gown with dreadlocks.

'I feel like she smells like patchouli oil and weed'

But after seeing pictures of the young star on the red carpet, Giuliana was quick to comment, snidely saying: “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil and weed.” Following Giuliana’s remarks, Kelly wrote on her Twitter page on Tuesday night: “I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT. I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW (sic).”

Earlier, Kelly had insisted she would not get involved in the situation. However, it seems her resolution was short-lived. “I WILL NOT BE DRAGED INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same! (sic),” Kelly tweeted.
Following her comments, Giuliana also took to the social networking site in an attempt to apologise to Zendaya. "Dear @Zendaya, I'm sorry I offended you and others. I was referring to a bohemian chic look. Had NOTHING to do with race and NEVER would!!! (sic)," she clarified.
The young singer was clearly left disgruntled by Giuliana's remark, as she headed straight to Instagram to air her grievances. She believes people criticise African American hair all too frequently and that the latest comments just encourage this. "There is a fine line between what is funny and disrespectful. Someone said something about my hair at the Oscars that left me in awe," she voiced. "I was hit with ignorant slurs and pure disrespect. To say that an 18 year old young woman with locs [dreadlocks] must smell of patchouli oil or 'weed' is not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive. I don't usually feel the need to respond to negative things, but certain remarks cannot go unchecked. (sic)"
