On Tuesday, Kelly Osbourne was threatening to quit “Fashion Police” over co-star Giuliana Rancic‘s comment about actress Zendaya’s Oscars red carpet dreadlocks. By Thursday, Ozzy’s daughter was singing a different tune: one of the “this too shall pass” variety — a hashtag she implemented in praising both fellow females.
“It takes a strong women to apologize & makes a forgiving women even stronger! #ThisTooShallPass,” Osbourne wrote this morning.
As Osbourne referenced, Zendaya has accepted Rancic’s apology, capping her forgiveness with a Martin Luther King Jr. quote. The actress had publicly expressed her displeasure previously, calling Rancic’s comment “ignorant.” Osbourne reacted strongly too.
On Monday’s “Fashion Police,” Rancic recapped the Oscars red carpet with her colleagues, saying of Zendaya’s hair: “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil and weed.”
That didn’t go over too well, though Rancic’s co-workers chuckled at the time.
Here is Osbourne’s latest tweet on the matter:
It takes a strong women to apologize & makes a forgiving women even stronger! #ThisTooShallPass
Below is Rancic’s apology on the social media site. Later, she’d issue an on-air mea culpa to Zendaya:
Dear @Zendaya, I’m sorry I offended you and others. I was referring to a bohemian chic look. Had NOTHING to do with race and NEVER would!!!
Previously, Osbourne tweeted the following:
I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT. I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW!

Here is Zendaya’s lengthy post:
