Kelly Osbourne quits Fashion Police over race row

Kelly Osbourne has reportedly quit Fashion Police because of how E! handled Giuliana Rancic’s comments towards Zendaya Coleman.

E! vetran host, Giuliana Rancic made, what some seen as a racist comment, towards actress Zendaya Coleman  on the latest installment of Fashion Police.

Kelly reportedly made it clear to producers the comment was unacceptable and has since quit the show, despite apologies being made to Zendaya.

The 30-year-old star announced her departure from the E! show just days after her co-host apologised for making an offensive remark about her friend’s dreadlocks at the Oscars.



A source told the New York Post newspaper’s Page Six column: “Kelly left not from the [comment] itself, but because of how Giuliana and the network handled it.”

It had been claimed the comments had been rehearsed three times, with Kelly warning her co-hosts they shouldn’t be used – but E! later denied they had been included in anything other than the final taping, something the outspoken star is said to be particularly furious about.

A source previously said of the show recording: ‘They did the Zendaya segment three times.

‘Three different takes. On the first two takes, Kelly said “Guys, we can’t say this. Zendaya is a friend of the show.”‘

Representatives for both camps have yet to comment.
