“Fashion Police” host Giuliana Rancic recently apologized to Zendaya Coleman for offensive comments she made about her hair on the Oscars red carpet. Since then, Zendaya has publicly accepted Rancic’s apology on Instagram. Now, her best friend Bella Thorne is speaking out.
In a video from RyanSeacrest.com, a Twitter fan asked Bella her thoughts on the situation. After immediately describing Zendaya’s Oscars look as “absolutely just stunning and gorgeous,” Bella opened up about Rancic’s comment.
“I know Giuliana, and I know Zendaya, and I know them both personally. And honestly Giuliana is a really sweet person. And Zendaya has been on 'Fashion Police' as a guest, and Giuliana just goes on and on about how much she loves her. So I think when Giuliana made that comment, although this doesn’t justify it in any way, I think that she didn’t mean it like that, and that it probably just came out wrong because she really loves Zendaya. And I love them both.”
Bella and Zendaya starred in Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up” together, and the BFFs often show their support for each other on social media.

"The DUFF" star ended her response by pointing out the harsh criticism teens face today.
"People have to remember that there is so much criticism going out to teens and the way they look and the way they dress … and people are just growing up. We’re all growing up. We’re all trying to find ourselves."
