Ozzy Osbourne Defends Wife Sharon After The Talk Controversy

Sharon later tweeted her support for Piers and continued to stand by him during the March 10 episode of The Talk. “Why is it that because I supported a longtime friend and work colleague of mine for years, that everybody goes, ‘If you support him, you must be racist because he’s racist’?” she said. “Now, I support him for his freedom of speech, and he’s my friend. I’m not racist, neither is Piers racist.”

Co-host Sheryl Underwood explained that, by standing by Piers, “it appears that you gave validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered that is racist, even if you don’t agree.” Sharon later replied, “I very much feel like I’m about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend, who many people think is a racist, so that makes me a racist?”

As the conversation continued, Sheryl told Sharon, “It is not the exact words of racism, it’s the implications and the reaction to it—to not want to address that she is a Black woman and to try to dismiss it or to make it seem less than what it is, that’s what makes it racist. But right now, I’m talking to a woman who I believe is my friend. And I don’t want anybody here to watch this and say we’re attacking you for being racist.”

Sharon then said, “I think it’s too late. I think that seed’s already sowed.”
