(Morning News USA) – Zendaya has accepted the apology of television personality Giuliana Rancic after the latter fired comments about the 18-year-old Disney star’s hairstyle on the Oscars red carpet.

During Monday’s episode of “Fashion Police,” Rancic remarked that Zendaya, who sported dreadlocks while walking the red carpet, must have smelled like “patchouli oil… or weed,” according to Yahoo! Celebrity.

This prompted Zendaya to write on her Instagram, “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.”

Rancic immediately took to Twitter and attempted to clarify that she was referring to a “bohemian chic look,” and that the comment was never related to race.
