The Talk co-host said that she’s been accused of being racist for supporting Morgan, 55, after his controversial response to Meghan Markle’s recent interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“Did I like everything he said? Did I agree with what he said? No,” Osbourne, 68, said. “Because it’s his opinion. It’s not my opinion…I support him for his freedom of speech, and he’s my friend.”
She continued, “I’m not racist…I don’t care what color or what religion anyone is. Are you a nice person? That’s what I judge you on.”Co-host Sheryl Underwood pushed back on Osbourne’s sentiment, asking: “What would you say to people who may feel that while you’re standing by your friend, it appears you gave validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered that is racist, even if you don’t agree
Osbourne teared up as she said that it wasn’t fair that she be accused of racism for defending him.
“I very much feel like I’m about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend, who many people think is a racist, so that makes me a racist?” she continued. “What does it gotta do with me?”
