After the controversial interview of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry aired, everyone had their own opinions about the shocking revelations regarding the royal family.

Piers Morgan, a long-time critic of the duchess, was among those who did not believe the couple and went as far as leaving “Good Morning Britain” after airing his sentiments on-air.

Meanwhile, Sharon Osbourne defended her friend, Morgan, while speaking to Sheryl Underwood on “The Talk.” Unfortunately, things got out of hand, and their discussion turned into a heated argument.

Recently, the television personality apologized for her behavior on the show through a lengthy Instagram message. According to Osbourne, she received much kindness from the black community for the past years and has lots of respect for them.

“I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive & allowed my fear & horror of being accused of being racist take over. There are very few things that hurt my heart more than racism," she wrote.

Williams ended the post by wishing her dear friend and her husband well.

Although she supports freedom of speech, Osbourne apologized for her words and how she did not clearly state her side. The host ended the post by encouraging others to learn from her and be kind to one another.

Osbourne did not mention Underwood in her apology speech after blowing up on her co-host and cutting her off several times while speaking on the show.

However, she mentioned that she should have been clearer in tweeting about respecting Morgan’s opinions. On Tuesday, Osbourne tweeted:

“@piersmorgan I am with you. I stand by you. People forget that you’re paid for your opinion and that you’re just speaking your truth.”
