Kelly Osbourne slammed by fans after posting selfie wearing Rachel Doleza wig

  1. 1. Kelly Osbourne slammed by fans after posting selfie wearing Rachel Doleza wig Kelly Osbourne slammed by fans after posting selfie wearing Rachel Doleza wig Kelly Osbourne has caused outrage with this photo of her wearing a curly wig. Photo: Instagram Kelly Osbourne has been slammed by fans who are calling her rude and hypocritical for posting a selfie imitating former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal. The 30-year-old former Fashion Police star posted a selfie on her Instagram account wearing a curly- haired brunette wig with the hash-tags #CallMeRachel and #MyCasualLook. #CallMeRachel #MyCasualLook A photo posted by Kelly Osbourne (@kellyosbourne) on Jun 18, 2015 at 9:07am PDT Many have speculated it was in response to the recent drama surrounding Rachel, which involved her own parents ousting her out for pretending to be black. Advertisement While Kelly may have thought her selfie was a amusing, some of her unimpressed fans clearly disagreed. One user posted "#deleted #hypocrite #notcool #youlostafan... #disappointed", and another wrote, "the same chick that was offended about the Zendaya thing is poking fun at this?". The "Zendaya thing" refers to E! News host Guiliana Rancic's ignorant remarks about actress Zendaya Coleman's dreadlocks at this year's Oscars, which included suggesting Zendaya "smells like patchouli oil... or weed".
  2. 2. Osbourne was so outraged by Rancic's comments that after threatening to do so, she quit Fashion Police. 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! -- Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne)February 24, 2015 It's no surprise Osbourne has lost fans over her decision to post a selfie which mocks such a sensitive issue surrounding race, just months after she quit her job because she does "not condone racism". Unfazed by the criticism she has since added more fuel to the fire by posting another selfie wearing a similar wig and collaging it next to a photo of her father, Ozzy Osbourne. The caption reads "#TBT". #TBT A photo posted by Kelly Osbourne (@kellyosbourne) on Jun 18, 2015 at 9:12pm PDT The response to her selfies have not been entirely negative, with one user positing on the most recent one, "She's wearing the same type of wig that a Caucasian woman wore when she spent her career IMPERSONATING an African American woman! No the same situation as with Zendaya and Rancic. Duh!"
  3. 3. Other users have come to Kelly's defence by advising people to "lighten up" as it's "just a joke". http://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/celebrity/ls-celebrity-news/kelly-osbourne-slammed-by-fans-after-po sting-selfie-wearing-rachel-doleza-wig-20150619-ghshfj.html
