Zendaya Coleman continues to show the world why she’s a class act.
The Disney actress publicly accepted Giuliana Rancic‘s apology and charged others to do the same saying, “I hope that others negatively affected by her words can also find it in their hearts to accept her apology as well.”
Read Zendaya‘s full statement below.
On Monday night’s Academy Awards edition of “Fashion Police,” Giuliana made made offensive comments about Zendaya’s faux locs. The backlash was swift and harsh resulting in Giuliana being dragged through the streets of social media.
Zendaya expressed her hurt and disappointment in the form of an open letter where she fact-checked and elegantly read Giuliana for filth. Zendaya’s response garnered a virtual standing ovation.
Last night, Giuliana released a video apologizing to Zendaya and everyone else who was hurt by her comments that “crossed the line.”
Hopefully, this entire ordeal has been a learning lesson for Giuliana Rancic and everyone else who makes it a practice of placing ignorant stereotypes on others.
