Kelly Osbourne was guest-hosting on The View on Tuesday, attempting to bash Donald Trump but ending up making a cringe-worthy racist comment.
It’s ironic because Kelly gave her former E! Fashion Police co-star, Giuliana Rancic, hell after claiming Rancic’s remarks about Zendaya’s dreadlocks. Karma is a beeyatch!
Earlier this year, Giulana Rancic made a joke about Zendaya’s hair on E!’s Fashion Police, stating Zendaya Coleman’s hair smelled of “patchouli oil, or maybe weed”.
Kelly was pissedand took to Twitter to write, “I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RESULT OF THIS IM SERIOUSLY QUESTIONING STAYING ON THE SHOW[sic] .” In the end, she ultimately quit the series.
Well, karma is a beeyatch and now Osbourne has found herself embroiled in controversy after her remarks about Latinos on The View.
During a Hot Topics segment about Donald Trump’s poll numbers with Latinos, co-host Rosie Perez read stats that found that 75 percent of Latinos do not like Trump; 61 percent said they viewed him very negatively; 13 percent said they viewed him in a positive light; and 50 percent found his immigration rhetoric offensive.
Perez said that 55 percent of Latino voters agreed that Trump’s comments about Mexico were ‘insulting and racist and have no place in a campaign for president.’
Kelly chimed in stating, “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump?”
You could hear a pin drop in the studio and everyone appeared shocked, as Osbourne tried to backtrack.
Raven-Symone told Kelly, “There’s more jobs than that he can use them for.”
Osbourne clarified, “In a sense, you know what I mean? In L.A. they always…”
Rosie jumped in stating, “Latinos are not the only people doing that”.
Osbourne backtracked and tried to explain, stating, “I didn’t mean it like that! Come on, I would never mean it like that. I’m not part of this argument”.
We find it quite interesting that Osbourne condemned Rancic as a racist, but now finds herself in the same situation.
Fans and celebrities took to Twitter to comment on Kelly’s statements.
Former The View co-host Sherri Shepherd tweeted, “oooh Lawd @KellyOsbourne latinos can only clean toilets… what are blacks good for? breastfeeding dem babies! Girl what did you just say!”
Shepherd added, “cutting @KellyOsbourne a little slack, bc I’ve done it myself … sometimes isht comes out of your mouth live that you didn’t mean to say”. (sic)
She continued, “It’s okay @KellyOsbourne … @GiulianaRancic did same … sometimes we say dumb stuff & regret it but hope we have friends who understand”.
Kelly apologized, but for many she is a little diva with a bad attitude.
