Piers Morgan Challenges ‘The Talk’ Over Its Cohost “Double Standard” After Sharon Osbourne’s Forced Exit

Sharon Osbourne has left "The Talk" and her good friend Piers Morgan is fuming mad about it. He takes aim at Sheryl Underwood and CBS.

Sharon Osbourne is officially out at “The Talk” and Piers Morgan is fuming mad about it.

It all came to a head in the aftermath of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Piers Morgan lit a match that set off a bomb exposing inconsistencies in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s accusations of racism against the Royal Family.

On “The Talk” Sharon Osbourne defended Piers’ right to have an opinion. That’s when they both got wrapped up in accusations of racism by the woke culture warriors. Now, they are both out of their jobs.

“The Talk” Hiatus Leads To Sharon Osbourne Leaving

Piers Morgan quit his job on “Good Morning Britain” after being bombarded with complaints, including one from Meghan Markle herself.

“The Talk” went on hiatus soon after that as Osbourne’s comments defending him warranted an internal investigation into racism. Now, she is out too after 11 years on the daytime talk show.

CBS claims Osbourne decided to leave but the network’s statement paints a different picture that accuses her of wrongdoing. “The Talk” debuted in 2010 and Osbourne was the only remaining original cast member.

“The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home,” CBS said in a statement said. “As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace. We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts.”

Sharon has been silent about this on social media, but Piers Morgan has not.

He also penned a column highlighting the hypocrisy of CBS and “The Talk” co-host Sheryl Underwood.

Piers Morgan Responds In Column 

In 2017, Sheryl Underwood defended her friend comedian George Lopez who was being accused of racism for actually taunting the skin color of a Black woman at his show.

This was not veiled racism. He was outright saying it. Underwood thought this was acceptable and defended him. 

When Sharon Osbourne defended Piers Morgan, who said nothing remotely similar to George Lopez, Underwood painted them both as racists. 

Underwood said: “What would you say to people, she demanded, ‘who say that while you’re standing by your friend, you appear to be giving validation or a safe haven to something he has uttered that is racist?’

In his Daily Mail column Piers took aim at CBS, the network that aired the Oprah interview and also saw Sharon Osbourne as collateral damage. 

He pens: “So, it’s OK for Sheryl Underwood to passionately defend someone who spews racist abuse at a black woman, but it’s not OK for Sharon Osbourne to passionately defend someone who didn’t?”

“This is such an outrageous double standard.”

“But then, this is the same CBS that allowed Meghan and Harry to spray-gun the British royals and media with all sorts of unsubstantiated highly damaging garbage, the veracity of which has been unravelling faster than Sharon Osbourne was jettisoned at the altar of politically correct bullsh*t,” Piers Morgan writes.

We don’t know the terms of Sharon’s severance agreement with CBS. She may have a gag order, but Piers Morgan certainly doesn’t.
