Holly Robinson Peete Calls Out Sharon Osbourne For Not Taking Responsibility + Kevin Frazier Under Fire For Suggesting Black Women Should Educate Her
The backlash against Sharon Osbourne continues.
The daytime talk show co-host has been facing criticism for more than a week after her controversial remarks aired on CBS’ The Talk. During the conversation, she reacted to questions from her co-host Sheryl Underwood, who confronted her for supporting Piers Morgan amid his alleged racist comments about Meghan Markle.
After the explosive moment, former The Talk co-host Holly Robinson Peete came forward and accused Sharon Osbourne of once calling her “too ghetto.” The next thing she knew, she was getting fired after the first season.
Sharon Osbourne quickly denied Holly Robinson Peete’s allegations.
She said, according to Variety:
“It’s an absolute lie—a 110 percent lie. I cannot have anyone fired…And that is a not a term I use. That’s not in my vocabulary. I don’t speak like that. The only ghetto I know is the Warsaw Ghetto and I think that’s the only time I’ve ever referred to something like that.”
She also took to Instagram to share her side and posted an email she received from Holly Robinson Peete after the American Housewife actress was fired. Sharon Osbourne wrote the caption,
“In response to @hollyrpeete Holly Robinson Peete’s accusation of me getting her fired from @thetalkcbs and saying she was “too ghetto” to be on The Talk. I never once uttered those words and I am sharing an e mail sent to me from Holly one month after she was let go by CBS. As I have stated before, I have never had the ability/authority to get anyone fired from @thetalkcbs and Ms. Peete’s email speaks for itself.”
Now, Holly seems to have another message for Sharon.
“If your only response to a disgusting allegation of racist behavior is to tell ‘little people’ to ‘f**k off’ you’re clearly not holding yourself accountable.”
At the same time, Entertainment Tonight host Kevin Frazier is facing criticism after his sit-down with the disgraced co-host.
After their conversation aired, he shared a post on Instagram suggesting black women get together and hold a “summit” concerning her remarks.
He later deleted the post and clarified his comments after receiving lots of criticism for it.
