Giuliana Rancic of E!’s “Fashion Police” has been under fire all week after she made offensive remarks about Zendaya’s locs at the Oscars. Although Rancic tried to smooth things over with an apology to Zendaya, Solange recently weighed in on the matter and claimed that the “Fashion Police” cast has bashed her natural hair as well.
Solange has been tweeting about the Rancic/Zendaya scandal this week, and on Wednesday she showed a sign of solidarity with Zendaya and simultaneously bashed “Fashion Police” with a confessional tweet, accusing both the E! show and In Touch Weekly of making offensive remarks about her natural hair.
For those who don’t know, Solange is referring to a column from In Touch Weekly last year called “Double Creature,” in which fans send in photos of their pets and compare them to celebrities. One fan sent in a photo of her yorkie and claimed the dog’s hair reminded her of Solange.
“Yorkipoo Jackie is “basically twinsies” with Beyoncé’s sis, says the 5-year-old pup’s owner, Brian Murray Jr. ‘They rock the same hairdo …’”
Clearly there’s a sensitivity issue and a lack of respect when it comes to Black hair, but Solange isn’t the only celeb who weighed in on the matter. Read what India.Arie wrote about Rancic after the cut.
