CBS said that it is conducting an internal review of Wednesday’s episode of the ‘The Talk.’ Sharon Osbourne’s discussion about race, which were preceded by her earlier support for Piers Morgan have led to the launch of an internal review.
On Wednesday, Osbourne hit the headlines as a result of her conversations with her cohost Sheryl Underwood on ‘The Talk.’ Both of them, along with Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth had discussed the intense reactions Piers Morgan received for his controversial comments on an episode of Good Morning Britain (GMB). Morgans and his team were commenting on Oprah’s interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, as clips of the interview were discussed on GMB.
During the discussion, Sharon, actress, show host and 68-year old wife of Ozzy Osbourne clarified her support of Morgan on Twitter. She mentioned that she did not agree with his opinion but she supported him for voicing it.
Co-host Kloots said that she understood why the former reality star Osbourne had reached out to support her old pal Morgan. Incidentally both Osbourne and Morgan have worked together in the reality show America’s Got Talent.
However, Underwood said that Morgan spoke as a person who’s entitled with white privilege and if Osbourne stood with someone like that how could she answer that she didn’t stand with racism, though Underwood also clarified that she didn’t say that Osbourne was racist.
Welroth said that it had been an opportunity for Osbourne to “stand up for anti-racism.”
When Osbourne asked, “So, if I like Piers and he’s seen as racist, I’m racist? Is that what you’re saying?”
All three women clarified that it was not so and that she was entitled to the rest of her opinions. But if she didn’t acknowledge that experience of racism, she was distracting with other information of being a royalist.
Osbourne reflected on the comments and posted in length on social media, apologized to those she offended, acknowledged the love and the support of the black community and condemned racism.
