It was only a matter of time before someone would throw a curly wig on their head and pretend to be black woman cosplayer Rachel Dolezal, and that person is Kelly Osbourne. I was sure we wouldn’t see white chicks dressing up as the white chick who doesn’t identifies as a white chick until Halloween time, but here we are.
The recently retired fashion police officer posted a picture of herself in a Party City Rachel Dolezal wig (or as I’m sure they’ll call it, the “Confused Lady” wig) to Instagram yesterday and captioned it: “#CallMeRachel #MyCasualLook“. Meanwhile, the real Rachel Dolezal is like “Call Me? Anyone? Please?” after she found out she’d just been fired from a Police Oversight Commission. Some people swatted at Kelly for dressing up in Rachel Dolezal drag, but she hasn’t deleted the picture yet. She did, however, decide to post a side-by-side of herself dressed as Rachel Dolezal and an old-ass pic of Ozzy Osbourne.
Kelly Osbourne dressed up as Rachel Dolezal is some uncanny valley shit. It’s giving me the creeps. I don’t know if it’s the wig or the jacket or that “Call an exorcist” look in her eyes, but I don’t feel right and I want it to stop. If I didn’t already know this was Kelly Osbourne, I would think I was looking at a picture of Sideshow Bob dressed up as Janice Soprano (minus the hot Rolling Stones tit tattoo) in an attempt to sneak out of prison. But maybe that’s just because I can barely remember what Kelly Osbourne looked like before she got deep into the world of cotton candy rockabilly.
