#CallMeRachel: Kelly Osbourne Mocks Rachel Dolezal With Instagram Pic

Kelly Osbourne apparently found a subtle way to poke fun at the Rachel Dolezal racial identity issue.

The 30-year-old former Fashion Police co-host dressed up just like Rachel and posted a picture of her new look on her official Instagram page Thursday.

Instead of adding a lengthy description to explain the photo, Kelly simply used two hashtags – #CallMeRachel and #MyCasualLook.

The reactions to Kelly Osbourne’s picture have been mixed in the hours that have passed since she first posted it on Instagram.

Some people found it to be hilarious and responded with positive comments about the picture.

On the other hand, there have been quite a few tweets that actually slam Kelly for her picture.

The mixed reactions and responses were also seen on Instagram, as well. In addition to the positive comments and kudos that she received from her Instagram followers, Kelly Osbourne’s picture also generated a lot of negative responses — including references to Kelly as being “disrespectful” and a “f**king hypocrite.”

Last Friday, Kelly Osbourne posted a before-and-after picture of Rachel Dolezal on her Instagram and Twitter pages with a caption that spoke volumes about how she initially reacted to the news.

“This has utterly shocked me! It’s a #WholeNewLevelofWrong.”

Kelly Osbourne made headlines earlier this year when she decided to leave Fashion Police shortly after the negative backlash erupted from Giuliana Rancic’s controversial comments about Zendaya Coleman’s hairstyle at the Oscars in February.

Kelly apparently refused to hold back her strong opinions and negative reaction to Giuliana’s comments at that time.

The former reality star posted several tweets in reference to the aftermath of the incident, which led up to her decision to leave the popular celebrity fashion show formerly hosted by the late Joan Rivers.

Hollywood Life reported that Zendaya tried to talk Kelly Osbourne out of leaving Fashion Police because of the controversial comments made — especially after Giuliana apologized for her actions. However, an inside source told Hollywood Life that Kelly found it “very difficult to forgive people — especially when it comes down to racism.”
