“Fashion Police” co-host Giuliana Rancic has faced serious backlash over comments she made about Zendaya’s Oscar look.

Rancic said the 18-year-old, who stunned in a Vivienne Westwood gown, looked like she would smell like "patchouli" and "weed," because she was wearing her hair in dreadlocks.

Zendaya answered with a poignant Instagram post, saying, "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. Not because I was relishing in rave outfit reviews, but because I was hit with ignorant slurs and pure disrespect."
