Kathy Griffin: I Wouldn’t Have Said That Zendaya Comment.

Zendaya, Giuliana Rancic, and Kelly Osbourne have all weighed in on the so-called joke Rancic attempted to crack about Zendaya’s dreadlocks on Fashion Police last month. Comedian Kathy Griffin took her turn Tuesday.

In an email interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, Griffin was asked if it would have been so controversial if she had been the one to utter Rancic’s line about thinking Zendaya “smells like patchouli oil… or weed” because of the teen star’s hairstyle on the Oscars red carpet. “Probably not,” replied Griffin, who replaced the late Joan Rivers as host in January. “But I wouldn’t have said the joke in the first place. Some dude wrote it for her.”

Zendaya Responds To Apology!

Zendaya is clearing taking the high road, but several other celebrities have taken Rancic to task. This morning on The View, the co-hosts agreed Rancic was “no Joan Rivers” and suggested thatFashion Police had run its course following the comedian’s death in September. “Maybe it’s time for the show to turn into something else, because Joan was one of a kind,” said Whoopi Goldberg.
