We can’t say she didn’t have it coming!
Last night’s Fashion Police was a bit more anticipated than previous episodes as it was the show’s return after a multi month hiatus that saw Melissa Rivers, daughter of the Joan Rivers, take her mother’s set on the panel.
But that was soon forgotten about as one of the guest panelists, Margaret Cho, stole the spotlight.
Everyone was playing it pretty safe with what they said seeing as how Giuliana Rancic‘s racially insensitive comments on Zendaya‘s dreadlocks at the Oscars blew up and resulted in Kathy Griffin as well as Kelly Osbourne leaving the show and lead to the show’s hiatus.
But Cho wasn’t going to let that get in the way of a good old jab at the host! On the show, Cho was talking a bit about Miley Cyrus when she said:
“I feel like that hair probably smells like pot and patchouli.”
Bringing up “patchouli” and “pot” is CLEARLY a jab at Rancic, and honestly one she deserves! After Cho’s comment, the host looked slightly shocked and embarrassed and she hid her face behind a throw pillow.
But Cho wasn’t done yet! This time she aimed her diss at a different target when at the end of the episode, when each panelist talked about what they learned, Cho chimed in:
“I learned that, if you’re Asian and try to be black, it’s racist, but if you’re black and try to be Asian, it’s a compliment. So thank you, Lil Kim!”
Well the show may have gotten more than they expected from the comedienne but she sure left her mark — HA!
