In an episode of “The Talk” that aired in March, Sharon Osbourne doubles the gap in defending her longtime friend, Piers Morgan, about his comments about Meghan Markle that were deemed racist by many viewers, celebrities and critics around the country. Osbourne said it was not her opinion and that she was simply supporting her friend for his “freedom of speech” (via CNN). Co-host Sheryl Underwood then challenged Osbourne, asking the “America’s Got Talent” judges, “What would you say to people who may feel that when you stand next to your friend, it seems like you offer validation or a safe haven?” for something he uttered that was racist, even if you disagree?”
Osbourne then asked Underwood, a black woman, to “educate her” about exactly what Morgan said was racist, and that her online outbursts were unpopular with viewers, the co-host program or her executive at CBS. Osbourne – who had served as a co-host for 11 seasons – was later fired from the show a few weeks after a spat with Underwood (via Limit line).
Shortly after Osbourne was fired from “The Talk” and social media users deemed her “cancelled”, her daughter, Kelly, opened up about the culture of cancellation in an interview with Our weekly. It is not surprising that the former host of the show “Fashion Police” does not hold back his thoughts on this phenomenon.
