Zendaya-Coleman-Giuliana-Rancic

Solange, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis And Ava DuVernay All Applaud Zendaya

Hollywood's leading women of color come to Zendaya Coleman's aid after E! Fashion Police host Giuliana Rancic said the Disney stars faux dreadlocks smelled of "weed." 

Zendaya Coleman received a round of applause from some of Hollywood's leading women of color after elegantly defending herself again Giuliana Rancic's distasteful and racist comments regarding her hair.

Scandal's Kerry Washington, How To Get Away With Murder's Viola Davis, Director Ava DuVernay and Solange all supported Zendaya in how she chose to defend herself when the E! Fashion Police host said "I feel like she smells like pachouli oil and weed."

Solange--who's afro has been the target of much criticism on the show--had one of the best responses.

Giuliana Rancic issued the 18 year old Disney star an on-air apology, which Coleman graciously accepted. However, it's still great to see so many other women support her.
