The identical CBS alum stated she heard Ozzy Osbourne’s spouse describe Sara Gilbert as a “p***y licker” and “fish-eater.” SO not okay!!

“The one factor worse than a disgruntled former worker is a disgruntled former discuss present host.

Sadly, the axed host simply couldn’t cease herself from digging additional down a gap. In an interview with DailyMail.com, she stated:
“Everybody’s received an opinion or a narrative just like the wonton story. It’s like f**okay off together with your f**king wonton story. F**okay off!”
Reposting the article to her Instagram Story, Holly Robinson Peete rightfully identified that the MTV star was simply proving her lack of ability to simply accept her previous and come clean with what she’d accomplished. The previous Speak host wrote:
“In case your solely response to a disgusting allegation of racist habits is to inform ‘little folks’ to ‘f**okay off’ you’re clearly not holding your self accountable.”
Severely, didn’t Sharon’s ever be taught if you happen to don’t have something good to say, don’t say something in any respect?! We all know she will get paid for her opinion, however a few of these alleged ideas ought to by no means have been voiced within the first place! Which is strictly why many outraged followers took it upon themselves to flood Osbourne’s social media feeds with dying threats, even scaring the fact star a lot she employed personal safety to observe over her LA dwelling.
Clearly, issues received a bit out of hand, however hopefully this decision will convey peace to those that felt harm by Sharon’s many alleged behaviors. It’s 2021, y’all! It’s about time we be extra respectful and inclusive of others!
