What do you think of the racist comment she made on Fashion Police that has caused Kelly Osbourne and Kathi Griffith to leave the show? Should HSN continue to sell her products which makes it look like they condon what she did?
HSN dropped Todd English immediately after the news hit that he was arrested for a DUI. In my opion the Rancic statement is much worse.
I don’t think it was racist, and in my opinion, it was much ado about nothing.
Wish people would get over themselves.
Last I heard, people of many races like patchouli and wear dreadlocks. And some people want to stir up the dung by yelling racist. They aren’t happy unless they’re attacking someone.
Kelly Osbourne left because she was also being attacked due to her association with Ms. Rancic.
Kathy Griffith is the one who made the comment about the weed. Which I personally do not believe is racist, but agree with massha that it was "elitist at best". She jumped ship before she opened her big mouth again and "offended" everyone with another "racist" comment. And due to association as well.
Ms Rancic has done nothing wrong. If you’re offended, don’t watch her. But if people want to buy her clothes, leave them be and let them buy what they want.
That’s what I think.
I also wonder why this was brought up again. It’s been done to death. Are people really still talking about this? Get over it and move on with your life.
Well, it’s funny that certain ethnic groups can be made fun of but one makes a comment about someone’s hair who happens to be non-white, and all h*ll breaks lose. Tired of the double standard.
Oh, for pete’s sake… It was a comment about her dreadlocks. It wasn’t racist. I don’t care for dreadlocks either! That doesn’t make me a racist; I don’t care who wears them. She was inferring that they looked hippie or boho. Just an opinion. I’ve heard so much worse on Fashion Police. Good grief… there’s such a double standard. I’m tired of it.
Driving drunk…possibly killing innocent people is worse than someone proving they’re ignorant?
Not sure about that one.
This is what I’d heard on the news: Ms Rancic has a great deal of power on FP, and there’s been a lot of ‘backbiting’ among the females on that show. Evidently, this is one of the reasons two members have quit the show. However, Kathy Griffin is such a hypocrite. SHE is the one who threw in the word ‘weed’ with regard to Zendaya. Now she’s saying, "…I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference." Doesn’t Kathy Griffin slam celebs every which way as part of her comedy stand up routine?
Shows that verbally brutalize women in any way need to be taken off the air. They just create a lot of hatred. The females who slam other females can’t even get along!
I found it as par for the course when they discuss fashion choices. People are just too easily looking to be "offended."
Over and done! Her comment was not racist in any way. This synthetic controversy is much ado about nothing. The constant media speculation and threads like these need to go away. They’re meant to do nothing but stir up trouble and dissention.
true and complete facts would be nice. but alas, not nearly as controversial or soap box worthy.
You are late to the party! Go to the search box – it’s somewhere on top of the forum – and run a search on Rancic (don’t use Giuliana because people spell it any each way) and have a ball reading.
[Personally, I felt the comment was elitist at best, not racist, but that’s me].
