RACISM & HOMOPHOBIC COMMENTS

She also reportedly referred to former co-host and executive producer Sara Gilbert, who is lesbian, as a and “fish eater.” The British native has been in the spotlight recently for supporting her longtime friend Piers Morgan.

Ali further explained that Osbourne allegedly has a long history of racial slur and bullying. The show has reportedly been put on a hiatus as its former and present co-hosts air their grievances on Twitter.

Osbourne is reportedly threatening one of them with litigation. According to Ali, his sources came forward to him back in 2018 and again recently after her blow-up on the talk show.

CHEN & GILBERT ON LEAVING THE SHOW

According to People, Chen left the five paneled talk show back in 2018 after eight seasons. At the time, she reportedly said she needed to spend more time with her spouse and their son.

In less than a year later after her departure, her former colleague Gilbert also followed suit. The 46-year-old left her position after nine years on the show.

REMINI TELLS HER STORY

Season one co-host Remini reportedly revealed that Osbourne referred to her as a "WOP and Guinea," which are racial slurs against Italians. Remini admitted that she did not take any action against racism and bullying.

She reportedly shared that she was party to it and had to own up to her own ugly. Remini added Osbourne has not focused on the work she needs to do when it comes to racist language.

OSBOURNE DENIES THE ACCUSATIONS

According to Vulture, Osbourne has reportedly denied the allegations made against her. Interestingly enough, the 68-year-old claimed that the segment in which she defended Morgan was a setup.

Osbourne said she was blindsided by the questions her co-hosts Elaine Welteroth and Sheryl Underwood had asked her. She shared her rage led to her unbelieving what was going on at that point and said she was a sacrificial lamb.

According to Osbourne, the co-hosts had made a pact never to ask questions that others did not prepare for in February 2020.

REGRETS DISMISSING SHERYL UNDERWOOD

Osbourne reportedly got candid about the current controversy following her defense debate about racism. The entertainment manager said she is not racist.

When coming to how she handled Underwood's situation, she said she got too personal with her. Underwood cried during the episode, and Osbourne told her to contain her tears and shared that she should not have told her to do so.

Underwood tried to make Osbourne understand Morgan's stance on racism claims and attempted to make her realize that dismissing it is what makes it racist. Before the episode, Osbourne went on Twitter and tweeted she fully supports him and stands by him for speaking his truth.
