Ozzy Osbourne’s Wife Sharon Shares A Statement After Her ‘Demand’ For A Racism Definition Which Faced Backlash
Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne‘s wife and a co-host on the CBS talk show ‘The Talk,’ Sharon Osbourne shared a post on her official Twitter page making a statement and apologizing after supporting Piers Morgan for his statements about Meghan Markle‘s allegations on the Royal Family in the famous interview with Oprah Winfrey.
As many of you know, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s landmark interview with Oprah Winfrey shook the world when Meghan Markle revealed that the Royal Family has concerns about the skin color of their baby since Markle has an African American mother.
The accusation of racism divided many people into two while some believed Meghan Markle and supported her while some believed that she’s simply accusing the Royal Family in order to draw people on her side. During an episode of Good Morning Britain, the host Piers Morgan had a hard time believing Meghan Markle and many people accused him of being racist.
After seeing the accusations on her friend, Sharon Osbourne took Twitter to show support for Piers Morgan and stated that everybody has the freedom to express their opinion, however, people also accused her of being a racist herself for supporting Morgan.
During a recent episode of The Talk, Sharon Osbourne opened up about the matter and got a little too defensive as the so-hosts of the show kept asking her question that somewhat implied she’s racist. Eventually, Osbourne asked her co-host who is also a person of color, to define racism and drew more attention to herself.
After receiving major backlash, Sharon Osbourne shared a post on her official Twitter page revealing a statement in which she expressed how she felt attacked at the time and panicked. In addition to this, Osbourne apologized to anyone who felt offended after her statements during the show and stressed the fact that she is not on the side of racism, misogyny, or bullying.
Here is what Osbourne said:
“After some reflection, after sitting with your comments & sitting with my heart I would like to address the discussion on The Talk this past Wednesday. I have always been embraced with so much love & support from the black community & I have deep respect & love for the black community. To anyone of color that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry. I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive & allowed my fear & horror of being accused of being racist to take over. There are very few things that hurt my heart more than racism so to feel associated with that spun me fast! I am not perfect, I am still learning like the rest of us & will continue to learn, listen, and do better.”
“Please hear me when I say I do not condone racism, misogyny, or bullying I should has been more specific about that in my tweet. I will always support freedom of speech, but now I see how I unintentionally didn’t make that clear distinction. I hope we can collectively continue to learn from each other & from ourselves so we can all continue to pave the way for much-needed growth & change. The community on this platform means a lot to me. I hope we can all hold each other up with accountability, compassion, & love during this powerful time of paving the way for so much-needed change.
