Sharon Osbourne defends supporting Piers Morgan
Previously Osbourne had actually tweeted her assistance of Morgan.
“. @piersmorgan I am with you. I stand by you,” she composed. “People forget that you’re paid for your opinion and that you’re just speaking your truth.”
On her CBS program Wednesday she looked for to clarify her position, stating she neither liked nor concurred with whatever Morgan stated. “It’s not my opinion,” she stated. “Support him for his freedom of speech, and he’s my friend.”
Her co-host Sheryl Underwood, who is Black, pressed back.
“What would you say to people who may feel that while you’re standing by your friend, it appears that you give validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered that is racist, even if you don’t agree?” Underwood asked Osbourne.
That triggered Osbourne to get tearful, stating she seemed like she was “about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend,” and ask that Underwood inform her what Morgan stated that was racist.
“Educate me, tell me,” Osbourne stated.
“It is not the exact words of racism, it’s the implication and the reaction to it,” Underwood stated. “To not want to address that because she is a Black woman, and to try to dismiss it or to make it seem less than what it is, that’s what makes it racist.”
Underwood included that Osbourne is her pal and she didn’t desire the audience to believe they were assaulting her as a racist.
Morgan tweeted his gratitude of Osbourne with whom he looked like a judge on “America’s Got Talent.”
“When stuff like this happens, true friends run towards you, fake friends run away. I love Sharon Osbourne because she always stays true to herself,” he tweeted Wednesday. “She knew she would get abused by the woke brigade for tweeting this – but did it anyway because it what she believes.”
