Sharon Osbourne Hits Back At Haters – Says Piers Morgan Spectacle Was A Set Up
Sharon Osbourne is battling more accusations of racism against her co-hosts; she's considering whether she will return to "The Talk" or not.
More accusations of racism have been made about Sharon Osbourne as “The Talk” extends its hiatus to next week as they investigate. But, the embattled co-host is refusing to bow down to cancel culture without a fight.
Last week, Osbourne defended Piers Morgan’s right to say that he didn’t believe Meghan Markle’s comments about the Royal Family.
This immediately put her in the hot seat. Her co-host Sheryl Underwood asked her some rather heavy-handed questions about it.
Now, Osbourne is claiming it was all a set up and fans are left wondering if this is just an excuse for them to push her off the show as the hits keep piling on.

In fact, in an exclusive interview with Daily Mail, Osbourne denies ever calling Julie Chen a ‘wonton.’ She says the claims are ‘crap, all crap.’
Accusations were also made that Osbourne made derogatory comments about Sara Gilbert because she is a lesbian.
Anyone who ever watched her family’s reality show “The Osbournes,” knows that Sharon and her rocker husband Ozzie are anything but politically correct and would expect this.

She discussed the situation with “Entertainment Tonight.”
In typical Osbourne fashion, she didn’t pull any punches. Even when facing down the barrel of a cancel culture assault, she isn’t backing down.
Osbourne Blindsided By Set Up From Producers
Osbourne believes that’s week’s contentious discussion with Underwood was a set up orchestrated by the producers.
The ladies have an agreement not to blindside each other. But, Underwood and Elaine Welteroth were reading their questions to her off cards.
Osbourne believes those cards came from the show’s executive producers.
“It was like, ‘You’re asking me the questions, you’ve got the questions written down there, and I haven’t even had time to get my head together to come up with a correct answer here,'” Osbourne said as she defended herself.
She continued: “You’re the one accusing me. And I didn’t even know this was happening. It was between her and I. I’m the one that should be crying here. My a** is on the line. I’ve just been pounced on, not even prepared for it.”
She also makes the point that having a disagreement with a person of color doesn’t make you a racist.
But, this does not follow the rules of cancel culture.
“I am not a racist and if you can’t have a go at your friend who happens to be Black, does that make me racist because I said certain things to my friend, but I said them on camera?” she commented during the interview.
She Discusses If She Will Return To “The Talk”
Sharon was asked if she will return to “The Talk.”
Sadly, she thinks that bridge might have been burned on both sides.
“I wish we could go on and have a adult conversation calmly and work it out but I don’t know whether we can,” Osbourne tells ET in the video below. “I don’t know whether it’s gone past that. I would love to but I don’t know whether I even want to go back. … I don’t know whether I’m wanted there.”
