Must not associate dreadlocks with marijuana

I guess Rastamen don't exist

Giuliana Rancic has apologized for making 'racist' comments about 18-year-old singer Zendaya.

In the Tuesday on air apology Rancic said she was sorry for claiming that the Disney star looked like she smelled of weed just because she has dreadlocks.

'I'd really like to address something that's weighing really heavy on my heart,' the TV host began. 'I want to apologize for a comment that I made on last night's Fashion Police about Zendaya's hair.'

'As you know, Fashion Police is a show that pokes fun at celebrities in good spirit, but I do realize that something I said last night did cross the line.'

Furor erupted online on Monday after Rancic claimed Zendaya smelled of patchouli just because she has dreadlocks.

The comments went further on the Academy Awards special when the show cut to a picture of the singer on the red carpet - a voice off camera could be heard saying that the Disney star smelled like 'weed'.

I associate dreadlocks with stupidity and big ego.
