Kelly Osbourne: ‘f’k cancel culture, it’s all about counsel culture, educate people’


Kelly Osbourne recently fell off the sobriety wagon, as CB covered yesterday. She talked about that in an interview with ExtraTV, and Kelly also not-so-subtly brought up her mom’s firing. She said we should be living in “counsel culture” instead of “cancel culture” and that people must be willing to educate others about racism and how it affects communities of color (eye roll). Here is what she had to say about that.

“I’m excited about what I don’t know. I’m excited about what I do know… the world is scary right now, but… it’s an honor to be a part of the world, when beautiful change is happening.”

She went on, “I didn’t know what was really going on in this country because I just thought that simply being not racist was enough. It’s not, it’s actually not, you have to be actively not racist and educate yourself and learn, and don’t be afraid to make a mistake, everybody’s so afraid of cancel culture I say f–k cancel culture, it’s all about counsel culture… educate people, teach people… a gentle nudge in the right direction is so much better than a public execution.”

[From Extra TV]

I am very happy that Kelly has been trying to get healthy overall. She looks healthy and it seems she wants to be and do better. But that doesn’t take away from her extreme entitled behavior. I am tired of people bitching about cancel culture when it really is accountability culture. I am not going to spend my time “educating” someone who is cussing at me while being unwilling to listen to anything I have to say. I also will not “educate” someone who has all the tools that could ever need to educate themselves. I do not mind pointing people in the right direction but I refuse to constantly retraumatize myself for people who don’t wish to actually learn. People like Kelly and Sharon want BIPOC to do all of the emotional labor while they do absolutely f*ck all and that isn’t cool.

Kelly and Sharon are glossing over the fact that Sharon got effectively canceled for her BEHAVIOR on national TV not her ignorance. All Sharon has proven these last few weeks is that she has an inability to take responsibility for her behavior and doesn’t want to learn and be better. Kelly wants the world to let her mom be racist in peace.

    Once again it’s not cancel culture, is being held accountable culture.

    • goofpuff says:

      Cancel culture is only bad if we cancel racist white folk apparently. And of course POC are expected to ‘teach’ them racist white folk. Some how it’s OUR fault and OUR responsibility to teach these racist a-holes? No thanks.

    • Lawcatb says:

      Exactly. Educate yourself, B_tch!

      Also, why does she appear to subscribe to the Khloe Kardashian school of selfie posing.

  2. VS says:

    ” I am tired of people bitching about cancel culture when it really is accountability culture.” — EXACTLY

    I am also tired of people with very little talent being given attention….this family should go away! her mother was aggressing another one on TV about getting educated! she should take her sorry behind and just disappear!

    • Alicia says:

      This!!!! WHY is she famous?? She has absolutely no talent for anything other than taking advantage of the nepotism her dad’s name affords her.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Yes!!! I don’t understand how these people would consider themselves famous when they have nothing to show for it!!! And why in the hell is she taking up for her mother??? Her mother can speak for herself, which she has done an amazing job of proving that she is racist and I wouldn’t be surprised if Kelly isn’t racist as well, since this is a leaned behaviour.

  3. Aidevee says:

    Maybe she’s healthy, I don’t know. It’s hard to tell with those heavily edited photos!

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah it is hard to tell. I was thinking she looks like a plastic blow up doll in some of the shots. Yikes.

      • Sarah says:

        She’s turning into a Kardashian!!

      • Seraphina says:

        That was my thought when I saw her picture, which Kardashian does she most resemble? I don’t even see any resemblance to her former self.
        Sharon needs to stop whining about how misunderstood she is and focus on her daughter’s mental health.

      • HoofRat says:

        I look at her face, and all I see is Sharon; not just the features, the self-entitled attitude as well. Stop pouting, hush up and pick up a book, young lady.

      • Jules says:

        I can’t with the fish lip poses… it cracks me up when women try to be sexy and they look absolutely ridiculous. How is any of this considered healthy?

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Precisely what I thought Esmom. Pin prick her and she’ll fly.

    • goofpuff says:

      Yes, I didn’t even recognize her. The photos are super edited.

    • Chaine says:

      I don’t think she is healthy, judging by the mouth-open poses in every photo, her nostrils have stopped working for their intended purpose.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      She seems like one of those people who use plastic surgery as a substitute for therapy.

  4. JillyBean says:

    Her and her mother make the Kardashians look like fresh air. I can’t with her because she is a stain.

  5. Merricat says:

    Sharon clearly neither wanted nor thought she needed counseling. The osbournes are mad because they lost money.

    • Sharocat says:

      I read she got $10 million to go away! Sounds like she made out like a bandit for being stupid.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Right, people aren’t always interested in trying and doing better. Sometimes all a person sees is that they’re not as bad to a group of people as their ancestors were, or that they aren’t doing that group of people bodily harm, so the slightest hint of a lack of ‘gratitude’ stirs up rage in them. The cruelty becomes the point- it becomes a sport of telling those groups to shut up about abuse and inequality. Sharen has shown this mindset, and her buddy Piers has built his whole career around it, much like Rush Good Riddance Limbaugh.
      Until that attitude changes in a person (it might not ever- an “I’ve paid my dues, fuck you babies,” mentality leaves little room for growth or accountability, especially when it receives outside support) education usually won’t work, and they way they treat people are just lessons on what not to do. There is no right tone to change that mind. The priority has to shift.

  6. ThatgirlThere says:

    Her open mouth Insta poses gross me out. She an her mother are excuse makers and need to educate themselves. It is not up to the oppressed to make accommodations for the oppressors.

  7. Brittany says:

    “A public execution,” she means like … the ACTUAL public executions this past year of so many Black people, like George Floyd or Ma’Khia Bryant? The way this woman makes herself and her mom the victims when they’re the problem.

  8. Miranda says:

    Why do so many people–grown-ass people!–even NEED to be “educated”? So much of the stuff they say out of supposed ignorance (I say “supposed” because I firmly believe that the vast majority of them know better) should be covered by common, don’t-be-a-dick courtesy. They just want to be assholes, and then play the victim when they’re called out for being assholes. Why should POC, or LGBTQ people, or women, etc. waste their time with this nonsense when their advice is just going to be disregarded and likely mocked?

    • AMA1977 says:

      This! “Don’t be an a-hole” covers quite a bit. If you’re the age Sharon is (or heck, the age Kelly is!) and you don’t know not to call your co-workers by offensive slurs that you then claim are innocent pet names and tokens of affection, then what is anyone supposed to teach you? My eight year-old knows that name-calling is not acceptable and that we apologize when we hurt someone, even if we didn’t mean to. Does Sharon need to repeat elementary school to learn some basic manners?

  9. atorontogal says:

    It would appear Kelly and Sharon have cancelled themselves by changing the way they look so drastically there is nothing left of who they were. Do they hate themselves that much? Like Khloe level hate? So very sad. Yet they can’t keep their big yaps shut about other people.

  10. Coji says:

    Unsurprising that someone who has fashioned herself to look like a blow up sex doll has a head full of air.

  11. JennyJazzhands says:

    So, let me get this straight. I have to experience the trauma of racism, deal with it emotionally, prepare my children to deal with the trauma, give racists a “gentle nudge”, and educate them?
    No thank you. You do the work.

    • Haylie says:

      Well said!

      Sharon and Kelly aren’t “ignorant.” She knows what she’s said and done to others is shitty racist behavior. She got away with it for so long because she’s an entitled racist in a world that caters to entitled racists.

    • Sarah says:

      Yep. Google is FREE! And they have all the money in the world to pay anti-racist educators and fund community care efforts – they choose not to.

      • equality says:

        People should flood her social media accounts with links to books, on-line resources, and counsellor’s webpages and tell her to educate herself.

    • Sandy says:

      *Claps* Well said!

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Yeah. It is absolutely no person of color’s responsibility, in any way, shape, or form, to “educate” someone. Especially someone who really isn’t even interested.

  12. Nomegusta says:

    … she should go stand in a corner in a dark room …and never come out

  13. Erin says:

    Cancel them both. These comments about cancel culture are gross, and Kelly needs to stop with the plastic surgery that’s making her look like a literal blow up doll. No reason for anyone to pay attention to either of these people

  14. SlipperyPeople says:

    Her hair color is TIRED. Everytime I think she’s gone away for good, she pops back up. Nobody needs to hear her opinions. Yet another concept this bish can’t seem to grasp.

  15. Tanguerita says:

    She can go f.. herself, the entitled twat.

  16. SarahCS says:

    Ok, get cracking, ‘counsel’ your mother and get back to us when she has learnt why her behaviour and point of view is so unacceptable.

  17. Aitana says:

    Kelly has had so much plastic surgery I don’t even recognize her. She looks like a totally different (& very plastic) person. It’s so sad all these celebrities feel compelled to totally change their looks to where they look so fake & unrealistic. I’ve never really liked her mainly because she’s always been so vile a personality. Yeah, I agree with all the other comments that say they wish she’d just go away… totally agree.

  18. Laugh or Cry says:

    And she has just confirmed she is a fill in the blank just like her momma. Abuse people for centuries and then except the victims of said abuse to rub your belly?

  19. Lovesitinnm says:

    She looks so much like Terra from Little Women LA now.

  20. Lauren says:

    There are a lot of sources that one can use to educate themself. Books, movies, studies, magazines, podcasts anything. And then there is the internet, readily available and mostly free. One just has to want to educate themself, because it’s 2021 you shouldn’t expect others to do the heavy lifting for you.

  21. Case says:

    I understand the problem with cancel culture when it comes to digging up someone’s very old social media posts or questionable comments from 20 years ago and deciding to cancel them based on that alone. But that’s usually not what happens, and that’s DEFINITELY not what happened to her mom, who refused to educate herself and only dug her heels in more instead of genuinely trying to remedy the situation. People need to freaking educate themselves, not put the burden on those they are hurting.

  22. Aeren says:

    Never forget what she said about latinos on The View. She is just gross.

  23. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    Yes to “accountability culture” 100%!

  24. detritus says:

    Cancel culture has always existed.

    It’s just usually BIPOC, LGBT folk and women who are ‘cancelled’ and it’s usually because they didn’t play the white patriarchal game.

    Sean Young ring a bell? Janet Jackson?

  25. N0body says:

    Oh F-off. This entire family is horrid.
    Kelly was all for cancel culture when Guillana (sp) made the racist comments re: Zendaya a few years back, but now that it’s about her POS mother it’s not ok.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      Right. And she’s using her sobriety issues to get coverage and spread her ignorance.

      Let her fade away.

  26. lucy2 says:

    Nope. Educate yourself. And when you think you’re done, do a little more.
    The apple didn’t far from the tree with this one.

  27. Leah says:

    It had to come into existence to teach people/companies that they couldn’t get away with certain behaviors of the past. Her mom got cancelled for supporting a racist sod, so of course she’s taking it personally. Her family is high profile (or was) and her mom is from a generation where it was normal to treat people like garbage based on the color of their skin. She doesn’t have to agree with everything her friend says because she’s known him for so long, call out the bad behavior and make him own it.

    Racism is a learned behavior and some people just can’t be “counseled” out of it. It’s deeply imbedded in their daily lives, an accepted behavior that they just think is as normal as brushing their teeth in the morning.

  28. EduBois says:

    Stop promoting racists.

  29. Jess says:

    How blessed we are that this privileged since birth, white woman has blessed us with her opinion.

  30. tealily says:

    She needs to close her mouth. I meant in the photos, but she can feel free to apply that more broadly as well.

  31. Valerie says:

    Right, but what she says is not what she does. You can’t educate the unwilling.

  32. Jaded says:

    Cancel yourself you boring little biche. And while you’re at it cancel your horrid mother.

  33. Greywacke says:

    Girl canceled herself by completely changing her looks. No self love for this daughter of a narcissist.

    • Cessily says:

      I agree, and I sympathize with any one going through any addiction crisis but am I the only one who is sick of having to be bombarded with rich privileged people with more help and resources than 95% of the population “falling off the wagon stories”? What about all the lost souls who never even get a shot at a rehab?

  34. Melanie P says:

    Kelly and her Mama both** need to take a seat and stfu..already,,they’re so horrid,,and loud mouthed!!

  35. Justjj says:

    LoL. Let an extremely rich, entitled, British white girl educate you people, ok?! We have so much to learn.

  36. nicegirl says:

    I cannot with Sharon or Kelly rn.

  37. Bendix says:

    * rolls eyes * Kelly Osbourne would like to speak to our collective managers! People are constantly trying to educate your deliberately obtuse ass! How about accepting that education graciously, rather than being whiny and defensive and doubling down? That would cut down the number of cancellations by vast amounts….
