Sharon Osbourne discussed her controversial exit from The speech as well as cancel the crop during an interview on Friday Real time with Bill Maher, Osbourne’s first TV appearance since leaving the daytime talk show.
In March, CBS announced that Osbourne “had decided to go The speechFollowing a heated conversation on the air about race as well as accusations of racist comments which led to an internal investigation of the network. Asked by Maher how she is now, Osbourne replied, “I’m angry, I’m hurt.”
Maher summed up the situation as follows: “Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave their interview with Oprah. Okay, so your friend Piers Morgan – he’s a commentator in Britain – he said he didn’t believe the things Meghan Markle said. And then on your show you said, ‘He’s a good friend of mine, and I don’t necessarily agree with his opinion, but he’s entitled to his opinion. So he was called a racist and lost his job and you were called a racist and you lost your job. Am I right?
“You got it right. That’s exactly how it happened,” Osbourne said. “I’ve been called so many things in my life I’m so used to being called things but a racist is the one I won’t take. “
After a conversation about the “coldness” of the royal family and Osbourne’s odd friendship with Morgan, Osbourne and Maher returned to the subject of Morgan’s comments on Markle – “She’s entitled to her opinion, Piers is entitled to his, and that’s it. by the way, “said Osbourne,” you have a right to disagree, discuss it in the normal way “- as well as the accusations of racism brought against Osbourne by the former The speech co-hosts like Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete.
“I never, ever said Leah Remini was what she said, I don’t even use those words, they’re not part of my vocabulary,” Osbourne said, adding that the charges against her came from of “discontented ladies”.
Maher and Osbourne then cursed at each other at “the cancellation culture” and how, as Maher put it, it “judges everyone on their worst time.”
“I’m a fighter, I’m doing great,” Osbourne said. “What about the people who have their knees cut off and can’t afford to take lessons now on what is politically correct and how to talk to people?” What is happening to them? It is not fair. It’s not about being racist. Maybe it is not knowing what is correct and awakened for your tongue that day. Because it changes from day to day, what is correct and what is not. “
