Giuliana Rancic initially apologized to Zendaya on Twitter after making an awful remark about the teen’s dreadlocks at the Oscars.
And now she’s apologized yet again in a taped segment that aired during E! News last night.
On Tuesday night, the 40-year-old ‘Fashion Police’ host said, “I just want everyone to know that I didn't intend to hurt anybody, but I learned it's not my intent that matters. It’s the result. And the result is people are offended, including Zendaya. And that is not okay.”
She continued, “Therefore, I want to say to Zendaya, and anyone else out there that I hurt, that I'm so sincerely sorry. This really has been a learning experience for me. I learned a lot today and this incident has taught me to be a lot more aware of cliches and stereotypes, and how much damage they can do.
“And that I am responsible, as we all are, to not perpetuate them further. Thank you for listening.”
Giuliana landed in hot water after she said Zendaya looked like she smelled of weed during Monday night’s Oscars special of ‘Fashion Police.’
Shortly after her offensive comments, the Disney star, 18, took to social media and called out Giuliana — though she didn’t directly name the TV personality.

Kelly Osbourne, who’s good friends with Zendaya, was up in arms over her ‘Fashion Police’ co-host’s remarks. On Tuesday afternoon, the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon angrily took to the social media site, threatening to leave the show.
