Los Angeles – The controversial fashion critique show Fashion Police has once again landed in hot water.

During the Fashion Police Academy Awards special host Giuliana Rancic had viewers up in arms after her comment about singer Zendaya's hairdo.

The singer, who frequently changes her hairstyle, sported dreadlocks on the red carpet.

Giuliana said her hair made her look like she "smells like patchouli oil … or maybe weed".

Viewers took to Twitter to voice their outrage about her comment and branded it racist.

Zendaya, who has been a guest on the show numerous times, released this statement on Twitter.

Giuliana has responded on Twitter saying her comment had nothing to do with race.  

Co-host Kelly Osbourne took to Twitter to say that she will not be dragged into the drama. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
