Kelly Osbourne questioning her 'Fashion Police' future over Zendaya row

Kelly Osbourne says she's considering leaving 'Fashion Police' over the Zendaya-Giuliana Rancic incident

Will Giuliana Rancic's comments about Zendaya's dreadlocks on the Oscars red carpet drive Kelly Osbourne off "Fashion Police"?

"Im giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel," Osbourne said Tuesday on Twitter. "cont[r]actually Im not allowed to speak!"

The purple-mohawked panelist jumped into a clash that began Monday on a post-Oscars episode "Fashion Police."

Sitting next to Osbourne, panelist Giuliana Rancic said on the E! show that Zendaya's dreadlocks made her think the 18-year-old probably "smells like patchouli oil. Or weed."

Soon after, Zendaya -- one of Osbourne's pals -- posted a note on Twitter calling the remarks "ignorant" and "disrespectful."

Rancic apologized less than an hour after the actress posted her statement, tweeting, "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!!!"

About 40 minutes after the apology, a Twitter user directed a message at Osbourne, saying, "weed because a woman of color has locs? Should we judge women with lavender hair as meth addicts???"

Osbourne appeared to be taken off guard, then said she would not be dragged into the mess.

"The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties," she tweeted. "I hope you can leave it to them & do the same!"

A number of people on Twitter responded angrily and said they were holding Osbourne responsible for the remark too.

Apparently the resolution — Rancic's online apology — wasn't enough for Osbourne, drawing her "make it right" ultimatum. Who should do that and what should be done were unclear.

"I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT," she continued Tuesday. "I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW!"

Do you think Osbourne should leave the show because of Rancic's comments?
