Sharon Osbourne repeated a racial slur she said about her former co-host, Julie Chen.
The hypothetical burial for Osbourne’s celeb status continues to get deeper and deeper as more allegations about her racism come to light. On Tuesday, journalist Yashar Ali published a report claiming Osbourne, 68, referred to her former “The Talk” co-host as “wonton” and “slanty eyes.”
The article included several unnamed sources, including another co-host of the show, Leah Remini, People reports.
Osbourne, however, claims the accusations are all false, referring to them as “crap, all crap.” In an interview with Daily Mail Wednesday, Osbourne repeated the racist language and then said, “Everyone’s got an opinion or a story like the wonton story. It’s like f— off with your f—— wonton story. F— off!” She added, “Of course, it’s a pile on. People want to add fuel to the fire, and it comes with the territory, and that’s fine,” she said.
On top of that, Osbourne also reportedly referred to former “The Talk” co-host and executive producer Sara Gilbert as a “p—- licker” and “fish eater.” Production has extended its hiatus until next Tuesday until the show can get down to the bottom of the allegations. In a statement, CBS said it will “continue to review these issues.”
“CBS is committed to a diverse, inclusive, and respectful workplace across all of our productions,” reps for the show said in a statement to PEOPLE. “We’re also very mindful of the important concerns expressed and discussions taking place regarding events on The Talk. This includes a process where all voices are heard, claims are investigated, and appropriate action is taken where necessary.”
