“What’s happened to ⁦@MrsSOsbourne⁩ is an absolute disgrace that shames CBS. Bullied out of her job for defending me against an invented slur of racism because I don’t believe a liar.”

Morgan concluded, letting his followers know that he would speak his truth about the cancel culture in an upcoming Mail on Sunday Column. According to reports, it was announced on Friday that Osbourne would leave the show.

CBS shared in a statement that the British television personality decided to leave the show after more than a decade as a co-host. The network explained that Sharon’s behavior towards her co-hosts during the March 10 episode was inappropriate.

Osbourne opened up about the situation, saying that she was blindsided by the show creators.

It happened that her co-hosts, Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots, and Elaine Welteroth, called Osbourne out after she tweeted her unwavering support for Morgan following his controversial statements about Meghan Markle’s suicidal claims.

Although the ladies of the daytime talk show didn’t accuse the 68-year-old of being a racist, they described her support for Morgan’s contentious comments about Meghan’s mental health as unacceptable.

Underwood explained that the last time Morgan visited the show, she tried to inform him about the racial undertones to the remarks he makes about Meghan, but he refused to listen. Osbourne got visibly upset, lashing out at Underwood.

when her co-hosts tackled her. Osbourne also admitted that she didn’t handle her exchange with Underwood appropriately and has since apologized.
