Another celebrity is weighing in on the Rachel Dolezal scandal.
Kelly Osbourne posted a photo to Instagram Thursday of herself mocking Dolezal’s look in a curly black wig.
“#CallMeRachel,” Osbourne captioned the photo.
It’s not the first time the former Fashion Police host has weighed in on the Dolezal story. Earlier this week, she posted side-by-side pictures: a recent snap of Dolezal and one of the embattled activist when she was younger, with pale skin and blond hair.
“This has shocked me!!!” Osbourne wrote in her caption for the contrasting pictures. “It’s a #WholeNewLevelOfWrong.”
But Osbourne, who was furious at Fashion Police cohost Giuliana Rancic for a racist joke about Zendaya’s dreadlocks, is now being called a hypocrite for her joke about natural hair.
“Such double standards Kelly Osborne! #shame on you,” one commenter wrote. Another weighed in, “So much for manners being the next trend. You are nothing but a hypocrite.”
Dolezal, who resigned from her post as NAACP chapter president in Spokane, Washington, this week, has been a national talking point since her biological birth parents revealed in an interview with a local newspaper that Dolezal, who has been posing as a black woman for much of her adult life, is actually white. Dolezal is now at the center of an ethics investigation looking into whether she misrepresented herself to secure a role on Spokane’s Police Ombudsman Committee, from which the mayor of the city has asked her to resign.
“There’s been no biological proof that Larry and Ruthanne are my biological parents,” Dolezal told the Today show’s Savannah Guthrie earlier this week during her only interview since the scandal went viral. “I mean, the birth certificate was issued a month and a half after I’m born. Certainly there were no medical witnesses to my birth. It was in the woods.”
She continued, “I’m more black than white. On a level of values, lived experience currently. In this moment, that’s the answer. That’s the accurate answer from my truth. But I hope the dialogue continues to push against, ‘What is race? What is ethnicity?'”
