“Everybody’s got an opinion and everybody’s got a voice – it’s fine,” Osbourne continued. “It’s about knowing somebody’s been called out for something and then somebody else is like, ‘yes!! I’m going to add something too.'” (RELATED: Trump Jr. Slams CBS For Pulling ‘The Talk’ After Backlash Involving Piers Morgan)
Sharon explained the accusations have “no real foundation,” saying, “Allegations of calling a Chinese lady a wonton, it’s like – is that all you’ve got?”
“I couldn’t care less,” she added. “And I’m not going to defend myself. It’s like, oh shut up – I’m too bloody busy.”
Journalist Yashar Ali recently reported on the issue. Multiple sources from the piece alleged that Osbourne called her co-host “wonton” and “slanty eyes.” The sources also alleged that Osbourne referred to former co-host and lesbian Sara Gilbert as a “p*ssy licker.”
