Tell us how you really feel, Kelly Osbourne! In a new Instagram photo, the former ‘Fashion Police’ star put on a wig that looks eerily similar to Rachel Dolezal’s hair and captioned it, ‘Call me Rachel.’ Is her joke really funny, or way too far?
Kelly Osbourne, 30, is not one to pass on a good joke. Unfortunately for former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, 37, she is at the butt of Kelly’s latest joke on Instagram. Kelly decided to chime in on the controversial topic of whether or not Rachel is a “transracial” African American woman by posting a photo of herself donning a wig that is nearly identical to Rachel’s kinky curls.
In a selfie snapped in her bathroom, Kelly looks like she had a little too much fun trying on different wigs. The one shown in the photo she shared is a clear dig at former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, who was forced to resign after her biological parents revealed that she is not of African American descent. As you can see by checking out the inset photo of Rachel above, the wig is almost an exact replica of her signature curly style.
In case that isn’t enough proof for you, Kelly also captioned her photo “#CallMeRachel,” throwing major shade at the woman who fooled an entire nation of her actual identity. Kelly is not wearing any make up in the photo, which is how Rachel appears 24/7, and she’s even sporting a black blazer to look “professional.”
Although it’s entirely possible that Kelly’s selfie could be considered offensive due to the controversial nature of Rachel’s image, her fans were nothing but supportive in the comments. Many of them thought it was hilarious, while others shared laughing emoji faces.
So, it’s YOUR turn to examine the above photo and let HollywoodLife.com know: Is this just a really funny mocking, or is it something more serious than that? Comment below!
