Sharon Osbourne Claims She Was “Blindsided” & Felt Like A “Lamb Out For Slaughter” On ‘The Talk’ As CBS Launches Investigation Into Racism Row

Published: Saturday 13th Mar 2021 by Sam

After initially issuing an apology to the Black community for a shocking outburst on The Talk, Sharon Osbourne is now claiming to have been “blindsided” by her co-hosts.

As reported, the TV maven was consumed with fury in defense of her friend Piers Morgan, whose dismissal of Meghan Markle‘s suicidal feelings saw him “leave” popular UK morning show Good Morning Britain. A development that took place against the backdrop of over 41,000 formal complaints about his conduct to UK regulator Ofcom.

Markle’s claims were unpacked during her and Prince Harry’s seismic interview with Oprah Winfrey and highlighted ill-treatment the couple says was racially charged. Specifically as relates to The Talk, it ignited a conversation about whether Morgan’s shocking dismissal was rooted in racism.

Osbourne’s fiery eruption, which is now a viral moment, has snowballed into a story in and of itself.

And now the host is adding fresh chapters.

Full story below…

Speaking to Variety, the 68-year-old said:

“I blame the network for it. I was blindsided, totally blindsided by the whole situation. In my 11 years, this was the first time I was not involved with the planning the segment.”

She says about eight minutes before the show began on Wednesday, showrunners called and ask her if they were green-lit to quiz her about Morgan – who she’d tweeted support for prior to the broadcast:

“I said, ‘Sure, they can ask me whatever.’ But then I get on there, I say my piece and Sheryl [Underwood] turns around straight-faced, looks at me and is reading from a card with questions. I was just so hurt, caught off guard and stunned by what I was being asked and not prepared. I was honestly in shock. I felt like I was in front of a firing squad. I felt like a lamb held out for slaughter. … They had me there for 20 minutes.”

Osbourne’s words come on the heels of CBS announcing that they have launched an investigation into the matter. A statement read:

“We are committed to a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace. All matters related to the Wednesday episode of ‘The Talk’ are currently under internal review.” 

The latest development arrives as former ‘Talk’ co-host Holly Robinson Pete took to Twitter to allege that Osbourne branded her “ghetto” – with the heavy intimation that it led to her being axed from the show.

With that, what are…

    Oh please, I’m over these grown ass people feeling “blindsided” by their own ignorance and lack of cultural education.

    I’m glad Holly spoke out and said what she said. She’s never been the type to lie about things like that, especially racism.

    I said, “they can ask me whatever”

    “Then, Sheryl turns to me and starts asking me questions and I was so hurt”.

    Lol. I guess she does need someone to write her talking points for her, because that’s basically what she said. You’re not a victim, Karen.

    I think the questions hit her with the reality that there is no reasonable defense for Morgan’s words and actions, but she had already stuck her neck out for him and can’t bring herself to admit that the both of them are wrong. She shouted at Sheryl with the same attitude as other white people who are quick to say someone is “playing the race card” rather than listen and try to understand the person’s experience. Sharon made plenty of room for Sara Gilbert to share her stories about being mistreated, but when a black woman speaks it’s all questionable. Sharon is so wrong.

    She should’ve just sat there and ate her food. Can she feel her face yet after her facelift?

    She still has failed to acknowledge that she was overly defensive and very rude to Sheryl.

    This white lady is funny as hell! First she tries to say that her friend is not racist because of freedom of so each he spoke his mind…but whatever b**** everybody knows how that man is he’s bitchy as hell!! He comes at females way harder than he does to males and he’s mad cuz she cut him off! He wasn’t saying that s*** about her because he truly believes he’s lying 🤥 he’s mad cuz he did get the inside scoop and the eventual Oprah treatment! That’s what he’s mad at! He is also particularly honing in on her because she is a black woman who married into that all whit racist ass family!! Sharon’s name is now Karen she tried to say that because they are friends people will say that she is racist because she knows him and she being crucified for defending him and being put out there as some super bigot! She roped herself in there to save him thinking that if she phrases it that way nobody will think he’s racist because she’s not racist! B****!! You are not friend to the black community!! You don’t have a stellar relationship with us! Most of the time we don’t even know what the f*** your saying with that funny ass accent you got! Then you apologize to use cuz you know you f***** up, but even the apology is fake because now you saying that the black lady set you up… you was blindsided blah! Blah! Blah! So why don’t you just say your first reaction was right and you shouldn’t have apologized! Fake ass b****! He whole family is f****** drug addicts! Stay home with your crazy husband and junkie kids!! If Cheryl ends up fired it’s gonna be all her f****** fault!

    Ff’s Sharron IS NOT RACIST, PIERS IS NOT RACIST! Black people stop making every god damn thing about RACE. (I’m black myself btw). Also Meghan looks more like a white person then she do black, when I look at her I see a white not a black, so stop acting like you are defending mama Africa herself!
