Zendaya Coleman is channeling her inner Frozen character in an effort to move forward from the controversy over her Oscars hairstyle.

"Let's let it go," Coleman told photographers while leaving a Hollywood studio with her dad. "Let's make it positive."

The scandal started when Fashion Police host Giuliana Rancic said the 18-year-old star's dreadlocks smelled like "patchouli or weed" while critiquing her Academy Awards red carpet look. Rancic apologized but her comments set off a controversy.

"It's over," Coleman said. I accepted her apology. I think as long as everyone learns from it, it's a positive experience." However, when asked if she thought Rancic's comments were racially motivated, Coleman answered, "No comment."

Coleman also shared that she removed her dreadlocks after the Oscars because they were too tight, not because of the criticism.
