Last night, Zendaya Coleman responded to the insensitive comments Giuliana Rancic made about her hair, saying it made the singer/actress look like she smelled of patchouli oil and weed, on Fashion Police. Rancic apologized to Zendaya on E! News today.

In her apology, Rancic said, "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 clichés and stereotypes, and how much damage they can do. And that I am responsible, as we all are, to not perpetuate them further."

Rancic added, "I want to say to Zendaya, and anyone else out there that I hurt, that I’m so sincerely sorry," and that she "didn’t intend to hurt anybody."
