Ozzy Osbourne Says That Calling Sharon Osbourne A Racist Is Like Calling Her A Pedophile
Before subjecting the UK to another national tragedy by moving back to England, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are still kicking it stateside and doing interviews. No, Sharon isn’t introducing the world to a new face. The couple is currently promoting a new Fox Nation docuseries and Ozzy’s new album. Or they would be if they wouldn’t stop talking about Sharon getting the boot from The Talk!
In 2021, Sharon got into it a heated debate with co-host Sheryl Underwood when she defended fellow wreck Piers Morgan against racist accusations. The incident led to Sharon getting ousted from The Talk. Since then, she has moved on from the incident, letting it be forgotten in the sands of time. This is what I WOULD write if it wasn’t Sharon Osbourne we’re talking about! In an appearance on Good Morning America, both Osbournes decided to take a swipe at cancel culture gone mad! via Variety:
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne appeared together on “Good Morning America” and reflected on Sharon’s firing from “The Talk” in 2021 after being deemed racist by many fans on social media. Sharon exited the CBS daytime talk show after arguing with co-host Sheryl Underwood about Piers Morgan’s controversial comments about Meghan Markle. Sharon defended Morgan and assumed she’d be deemed racist for supporting him. She also spoke over Underwood, which led to a network investigation into Sharon’s conduct on the show.
“What happened to me. The way I felt about it. The amount of time it took me mentally to get over it. And just to show I have — got over it,” Sharon told “GMA” and ABC News over a year later.
There’s beating a dead horse and then there’s Sharon. Nothing says “I’m over it” like talking about it non-stop in multiple interviews for millions of people to hear. Ozzy decided to throw his two cents (pence?) into the conversation by making a rational equivalency.
“When you’re accused of that, by saying, ‘I’m not racist,’ it’s like being accused of [being] a pedophile,” Ozzy added. “It’s one of those things now that you — by saying you’re not, they think you are more. It’s like — it’s a stigma.”
“Like I said on the show, ’You’ve now planted that seed. That will never leave me. You’ve planted that seed. The damage is done,’” Sharon concluded, adding that she has “no regrets” about what she said on “The Talk.”
“No more saying sorry, ’cause I’m not,” Sharon said. “Cause I didn’t do anything wrong except ask questions.”
Someone tell Ozzy to save the catchy lyrics for his new album! This interview has all the hits: “I have no regrets!”, “I’m just asking questions!”, and being called a racist = being called a pedophile. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think getting fired from a daytime talk show seems to be worth the amount of airtime the Osbournes have given it. Now I’m not sure what the docuseries is about, but if the title Sharon Osbourne: To Hell & Back is any indication, get ready for 15 episodes dissecting why each and every one of The Talk hosts is the devil!
