Yesterday, Kelly Osbourne was dragged by the hair for her poor choice of words as a guest co-host on The View.
Ms. Osbourne in response to Donald Trump‘s poll numbers with Latinos said:
“If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump?”
A silence fell over the studio audience and you could see the other co-hosts, Rosie Perez, Whoopi Goldberg and Raven Symone were taken aback.
Then Perez mumbled: ‘Oh, that’s not… oh, no!’ as she shook her head in disbelief.Sensing things were tense, Osbourne clarified: ‘In a sense, you know what I mean? In L.A. they always…’ But before she could finish, Perez had calmed enough to finally check her.‘Latinos are not the only people doing that,’ explained Perez, looking seriously into Osbourne’s eyes.
Osbourne backtracked and tried to elaborate. ‘I didn’t mean it like that! Come on, I would never mean it like that. I’m not part of this argument,” she contested. Moderator Whoopi Goldberg stepped back in and tried to take control of the segment, before ultimately going to commercial break.
During the break, the daughter of rock legend Ozzy Osbourne and The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne burst into tears, saying:
“Everyone is going to think I’m racist. I can’t believe this!”
As she cried, producers of the show and her personal handlers ran to her side. Everyone assured Kelly things would be okay.
A source told Mail Online, they were trying to calm her down before returning from commercial break.
Rosie was still pissed. She stormed off and said:
“I want no parts of that mess.”
