Sharon Osbourne Speaks out about Nonviolence in Wake of George Floyd's Brutal Death
Parts of America and some other countries across the world are currently seeing an uprising as people take to the streets to speak out against the unjust murder of George Floyd.
Many celebrities have also taken to their social media accounts to show support for Floyd with many donating to different organizations. People want to see a change in how the police operate as many people of color have died unjustly in the hands of law enforcement.
The latest celebrity to speak out is Sharon Osbourne, 67, a co-host of the show “The Talk.” Taking to Instagram, the star wrote part of Martin Luther King’s quote stating: “At the center of nonviolence stands the principle of love.”

HOW FLOYD DIED
Floyd died after a policeman kneeled, for a prolonged time, on his neck while arresting him. Despite the victim pleading several times with the officer to remove his knee because he couldn’t breathe, the policeman ignored him leading to his death.
Since the marches and uprising have started, several celebrities have come out to show support to the Black Lives Matter movement in one way or another. Ellen DeGeneres voiced her support to the protests and pledged to donate to organizations.
STARS SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT
She’s also going to donate to the Floyd memorial fund and the ACLU. David Guetta made his voice heard by releasing a remix of King's "I Have a Dream" speech.
Designer Virgil Abloh took to her Instagram account to share that he’d made a $20,500 donation to bail funds. Actor John Boyega posted some passionate messages about Floyd’s untimely death.
DONATIONS MADE FOR BAIL
Television personality and authoress Chrissy Teigen revealed that she was willing to donate $200,000 to bail out protestors.
The protests were also for the deaths of Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, who all died senselessly due to racism and police brutality.
JOKING ABOUT QUARANTINE
On a lighter note, last month, Osbourne found a way to brighten the novel coronavirus outbreak by posting a funny post.
She revealed on Instagram that she’d had enough of being quarantined with her husband Ozzy Osbourne.
BITING HEADS OFF
Alongside a photo of her husband trying to bite her head off, the British star wrote: “[Is] quarantine quality time getting a little much for anyone else?”
DISCUSSING ADELE’S WEIGHT LOSS
On May 12, 2020, she sparked some controversy when she commented about Adele’s weight loss. While speaking on “The Talk,” she said:
“When these women say that they are really happy in their bodies, I don’t believe them.”
Osbourne shared how “unhappy” she had been when her body was “really, really big.”
