Sharon Osbourne has doubled down after the controversy that caused her to leave CBS’ “The Talk,” this time calling out her former colleagues while continuing to defend her pal, Piers Morgan.
According to Page Six, the outspoken Osbourne was a guest on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher” and said she was “angry and hurt” at being labeled a racist for showing support to Morgan, in addition to the accusations made against her by her former co-hosts.
“I’ve been called so many things in my life. I am so used to being called names. But a racist is one I will not take,” she defiantly told Maher.
She also flatly denied claims made by one-time co-host Leah Remini’s who alleged that she called Julie Chen “slanty eyes” and referred to Sara Gilbert as a “p*ssy licker.” Osbourne had also previously been accused of calling Holly Robinson Peete “too ghetto” to co-host the show.
Osbourne also criticized Prince Harry while defending the Royal Family.
“You know when they say white privilege? You know, right there with Harry. Right there. He is the poster boy,” Osbourne insisted. “So you know, he sits there and says ‘daddy cut him off, and he’s not on the wages anymore,’ and he was boohooing about it,” she said mockingly.
“You can’t feel empathy for that,” she said. “Because you’re a healthy, bright, educated young man. You can do whatever you want to do. Your life is your own,” she explained.
“[The Queen] is from a different generation,” Osbourne said. “They are notoriously non-huggy. I get it because of her age. She’s from a different generation,” she said.
