Popular TV Host Leaves Show Following ‘Racial’ Controversy

Sharon Osbourne left ‘The Talk” voluntarily and because CBS stated that “Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace,” according to The Blaze.

The show took a break after a heated discussion regarding Piers Morgan’s statement in reference to Meghan Markle and Price Harry’s recent interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In the Interview Meghan Markle made comments revealing that the Royal family is allegedly racist.

Pierse Morgan shared his disdain towards Meghan Markle and Harry which then led to Morgan leaving “Good Morning Britain.”

Osbourne defended Morgan in an argument with co-host Sheryl Underwood.

“Did I like everything he said? Did I agree with what he said? No. Because it’s his opinion. It’s not my opinion… I support him for his freedom of speech, and he’s my friend.”

Osbourne said she was “about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend who many people think is a racist and that makes me a racist.”

Underwood asked what Osbourne would say if people insisted that defending Morgan’s comments was racist.

Osbourne said, “For me, at 68 years of age to have to turn around and say ‘I ain’t racist’ – what’s it got to do with me? How could I be racist about anybody? How could I be racist about anybody or anything in my life? How can I?”

Osbourne repeatedly asked Underwood to “educate me.”

Underwood said, “Don’t try and cry because if anyone should be crying, it should be me.”

Osbourne issued an apology on Twitter to “anyone of color that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said.”

Osbourne hosted ‘The Talk’ for more than 10 years.

Osbourne claimed that she was ambushed with a topic she was not prepared to discuss.

According to the investigation, other current and former hosts of the show publicly accused Osbourne of racist behavior.

In addition, it was noted that Osbourne once made crude comments about the sexual orientation of actress Sara Gilbert.

Osbourne claimed she was being used as a “sacrificial lamb” for having defended Morgan.

CBS stated that they “did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts.”

CBS promised that it was “coordinating workshops, listening sessions and training about equity, inclusion and cultural awareness for the hosts, producers and crew.”

From The Blaze:

Osbourne did not immediately respond to requests for comment from multiple news outlets.
