Giuliana's "Fashion Police" co-star Kelly Osbourne later joined the Twitter conversation to express her disappointment, saying, "Im giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel. contactually Im not allowed to speak!" Kelly even stated that she was considering leaving the show.

Amidst the controversy, Giuliana addressed the matter in a public statement on E! News later in the evening, saying it was "weighing very heavy on [her] heart."

She went on to say, "I do understand that something I said last night did cross the line. I just want everyone to know I didn't intend to hurt anybody, but I have learned, it is not my intent that matters, it's the result. And the result is that people are offended, including Zendaya, and that is not okay."
