AceShowbiz - Giuliana Rancic is still facing the repercussion of her controversial comment on Zendaya Coleman's hair, four years after the scandal. The former "Giuliana & Bill" star was reportedly snubbed by the "Euphoria" star at the 2019 People's Choice Awards.
According to Radar Online, the 23-year-old actress/singer skipped over the E! News commentator while walking the red carpet of the Sunday, November 10 event. The "Spider-Man: Far From Home", who was stunning in a black dress, allegedly flashed a few smiles, but did not stop for interviews.
Giuliana faced an immense backlash in 2015 when she made fun on Zendaya's dreadlocks hair at the Academy Awards. "She's in such a tiny frame that this hair to me overwhelms her, like I feel like she smells like patchouli oil or weed, yeah, maybe weed," said the 45-year-old of the former "K.C. Undercover" star at the time.
Responding to the offensive remarks, Zendaya told Page Six that Giuliana's comments only "empowered me to continue to break down boundaries and to expand the mold of what beautiful is to people."
"The Greatest Showman" star has since refused to let Giuliana interview her and has even declined multiple opportunities to co-host for the network, said an insider.
Giuliana herself announced her decision to step back from her position as co-anchor on E! News in 2015. In 2018, she made her return as an anchor on the network, only to announce her exit again last month.
"Returning to E! News this last year was an incredible homecoming," the Italian-American television personality wrote on Instagram on October 23. "As the show moves to NYC in January, many of you have asked if I will be returning full-time. I wanted to let you hear firsthand that I've decided I won't be able to make this big move at this time."
