Giuliana Rancic: Death Threats Were Sent To My Family
On the Apr. 15 episode of Access Hollywood, Giuliana dropped by to discuss the continuing saga that is her controversial comments about Zendaya’s hair. Though Giuliana has since apologized, she revealed that she and her family have still received a ton of terrifying hate.
“So many of these people who were commenting to me…hadn’t even seen the clip,” Giuliana said. “They had read a statement, they kind of cerated whatever they wanted to create in their head, and just went after us– went after me and my family. I was getting all sorts of threats against me, my family, writing Duke’s name in these Tweets saying they’re gonna kill my family and ‘you better watch out,’ sending me pictures of the barrel of a gun, a lot of gun pictures and gang pictures.”
The Zendaya Backlash Continues
Though Giuliana received a ton of awful responses from the public, she wanted to make it clear that she does not identify these people as Zendaya’s fans. “It was Zendaya sending a message to her fans, but then all these other people picked up on it who were clearly not her fans,” she said.
So scary! Regardless of your opinions on Giuliana, we can all agree that such violent responses are not doing anyone any good.
Have you guys moved on from Giuliana’s comments? Or does she need to keep apologizing?
