It has truly been a wild year for Zendaya after she was the topic of discussion on Fashion Police. MStars News previously reported that the E! News show caught major backlash after host Giuliana Rancic made comments claiming Zendaya's dreadlocks "smells like patchouli oil or weed."
Following the comments, Zendaya clapped back at the show and called Rancic's words "disrespectful" and "offensive." Since then, a lot has changed on the show, including Kelly Osbourne's departure. Osbourne claimed that she wasn't part of those awful comments and quit the show.
