Ozzy Osbourne Shares The Leaked Audio Proving Sharon Was Set Up To Involve In Racism Discussion
Former Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne posted the news about the leaked audio from the backstage of ‘The Talk.’ He stated that this is proof of his wife Sharon Osbourne’s being set up by the showrunners and the other co-hosts of the show after she was accused of being racist.
As you may remember, Meghan Markle unveiled the royal family’s racist behaviors toward both her and her baby in her recent interview with Oprah Winfrey. Her statements about the racism in the royal family got different reactions from many people. Most of the people supported her and criticized these behaviors while the others like Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan didn’t believe her.
Piers Morgan faced a serious backlash after he stated that he didn’t believe Markle’s words. Sharon Osbourne supported her friend and stated that he could share his thoughts freely and this couldn’t make him racist. After her statements, she was also accused of being a racist. During her show ‘The Talk,’ she was asked about this issue, and the other co-host Sheryl Underwood reacted to her statements by claiming that Sharon is a racist.
Sharon Osbourne left the show after this on-air debate and she defended herself saying that she was set up and the other hosts intentionally led the conversation to Megan Markle and Piers Morgan. However, the co-hosts Elaine Welteroth and Sheryl Underwood didn’t accept this accusation until the leaked video was shared by Daily Mail. In the video, Welteroth was confronting Osbourne and said that nobody thought that she was racist.
Even though Welteroth showed her support for Osbourne, she kept asking questions about the racism and let the debate’s being fired up by Underwood. It can be understood from the leaked video that Welteroth was forced to ask the question and start a debate on Sharon Osbourne’s ideas by the showrunners. Ozzy Osbourne shared a part of the video as proof of his wife’s innocence on his Twitter account.
Here’s what they said in some part of the leaked video:
“Do you know what it is though when you have to sit there and defend yourself? It makes you look guilty because you can’t get out of it.
‘It’s like calling somebody a pedophile, you can’t deny it. What do you say?’
Welteroth then goes on to try to console Osbourne and reassure her that she has her co-stars’ support.
‘I just want you to know, Sharon. Sheryl loves you and respects you so much and had your back behind the scenes. She was not trying to attack you,’ she says.
‘But I also understand when you had a [long night] of trolls f**king attacking you online, that puts you in a position where you have to defend yourself. You feel like you have to defend yourself.
‘And I know you’re upset. I know it was terrible, but I just hope that once this blows over that you know Sheryl is your friend. She really is your friend.
‘She doesn’t think you’re racist. I don’t think you’re racist. No one who knows you would ever say that or think that.’
Osbourne replies sniveling: ‘But why couldn’t she have said, “I’ve known you for 11 years, I know you are not racist” instead of, “I don’t think you are”?
‘No. I know you’re not. There’s a huge difference. A f**king night and day difference to know.
‘I’ve gone to Sheryl,’ Osbourne continues. ‘I’ve said, “educate me. I need to know about your heritage, I need to know things.”
‘She would tell me to get this book and that book and whatever, and she would help me out with things that I didn’t quite understand.
‘When that came, I was like…it was like somebody punched me in the face.’
‘They asked me to ask that question. I said, no I’m not going to ask that question,’ Welteroth says. ‘I said to them, this is going to be a train wreck.
‘Sharon, I’m just so sorry that that went the way that it went.’“
