The first of the questionable if inevitable Rachel Dolezal Halloween costumes has come up – and, shockingly, it’s Kelly Osbourne blazing the trail.

The TV personality took to Instagram on Thursday, where she posted a photo of herself dressed as Rachel Dolezal.

“kellyosbourne#CallMeRachel #MyCasualLook,” the 30-year-old TV personality captioned a questionable pic of herself as the former NAACP leader who allegedly lied about being black for years.

The post garnered mixed reactions on Osbourne’s Instagram page, with some commenters deeming it funny and others calling it “rude” and “hypocritical.”

Osbourne’s parody post comes just months after the former Fashion Police panelist quit the hit E! show following co-host Giuliana Rancic‘s controversial comments about how Zendaya‘s dreadlocks looked like they smelled of “patchouli” and “weed.”

“Im giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel. contactually Im not allowed to speak!” she posted Feb. 24 on Twitter, later adding:

“I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT. I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW!”

Osbourne officially called it quits Feb. 27.

“There’s been so much drama surrounded by what went on at Fashion Police that I have chosen to keep quiet about,” she told PEOPLE in April. “I will continue to keep quiet because I don’t think it will do anyone service, but I will say this: Giuliana is not often wrong. She really isn’t, but it’s been really, really heartbreaking to see her behavior that has transpired when she did get caught being wrong. That’s what broke my heart.”
