Kelly Osbourne goes off about ‘cancel culture’: ‘If you think I’m a racist, fine’

The Osbourne clan is at it again. Every since Sharon had a full blown Karen meltdown on her show, The Talk, and was unceremoniously let go by CBS, Sharon has been her “I am not a racist” non-apology tour. Recently, Sharon has gone radio silent. However her daughter, Kelly, has picked up the torch on her mother’s behalf. Kelly has been railing against cancel culture, stating that we should have a more compassionate approach called “counsel culture.” Mind you, Kelly has been misrepresenting everything that led up to her mother being cancelled. In Kelly’s mind, her mom just didn’t understand what racism was and needed to be educated. Kelly blithely glosses over the fact that Sharon was hostile and nasty on national TV toward her co-workers. Now, Kelly is taking a page from her mother’s talking points by getting hostile in a new interview with US Weekly. Kelly said “f*ck cancel culture” and that she doesn’t care if people think she is racist.

“I keep trying to get people to change the way they think about this in the sense of, don’t be afraid to make a mistake because we all are so privileged and it’s an honor,” Kelly, 36, exclusively told Us Weekly on Monday, May 3, while promoting her new podcast, “The Kelly Osbourne and Jeff Beacher Show” with cohost Jeff Beacher. “We’re a part of the right side of history. We’re part of a time when the world is changing finally, for the good, in the sense that people are waking up. They’re seeing that people have not been held accountable and that there is a huge problem with race in this world.”

“The pendulum swung so far in one direction that it’s going to have to swing in the other for a little bit before we find some normal ground and we figure out what’s right and what’s wrong,” she said, noting that people should not be “afraid to make that mistake,” and to “ask questions” and educate themselves.

Kelly noted that “we’re part of a change” and part of a movement “that made the world a better place,” so if you’re trying you shouldn’t be fearful of getting it wrong.

“That’s why, like, I don’t give a f—k about cancel culture. I don’t give a f—k about what anyone thinks about me in that sense,” she told Us. “Like, if you think I’m a racist, fine. You think I’m a racist. I know who I am. I don’t care what you think of me. I care what [my cohost] Jeff thinks of me. I care what my family thinks of me. I don’t care what somebody hiding behind a computer and a fake Instagram page who puts up stuff where they don’t practice what they preach [thinks].”

[From US Weekly]

Kelly and Sharon continue to dig a hole for themselves by playing the victim. It is getting tiring listening to them b*tch about being canceled while refusing to take responsibility for their behavior and attitudes. What is even more infuriating is Sharon and Kelly screaming that people should educate them about racism while saying they won’t educate themselves. It is extremely rich and entitled of these two to be constantly gaslighting BIPOC with their bullsh*t about how their feelings are hurt for being canceled and how THEY should be treated with compassion. Yet not one of the people that Sharon yelled and cursed at (on national TV I might add) were treated with compassion. Nor did Kelly think of people compassionately when she made the off-handed comment about not having anyone to clean her bathrooms if Latinos were expedited back to their home countries. The fact that Kelly and Sharon are more offended about being called a racist than about the racism they commit says a lot about them. Kelly and her mother can both take several seats. No one is going to feel sorry for them except the MAGAts crowd. They both need to accept that their behavior has gotten them both into this mess. Good luck to them on resuscitating their careers.

    GO AWAY.
    That’s all I have.
    And I will stop reading about them, the only thing we can do it’s stopping giving them what they want: attention.

    • North of Boston says:

      I’m making this the last Osborne related post I’m ever going to click on.

      KO is not relevant, and with every post and public statement she’s make it clear that not only does she NOT get it, she doesn’t WANT to get it. She wears her ignorance and fake-victimhood (in this case reflected fake victimhood from her mother’s bigoted racist assininity ) like it’s something to be proud of.

      It’s not.

      • Anna says:

        Same here @Eleonor and @North of Boston The attention and posts are what they want. F them. No more. I’m done. Same with the posts on 45 and his demons. Nope.

    • Mac says:

      Same. Kelly and Sharon are ignorant, fame-adjacent nobodies.

    • MaryContrary says:

      Agreed. Kelly should not have a platform at all-who is she, exactly, besides the daughter of an old rock star who was on a reality show 20 years ago. There is no reason to give her any relevance.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        This!She is so wealthy she doesn’t need to work she can get and stay completely out of the public eye and she will be fine and the rest of the world even better.Go away and stay away!

    • AG says:

      Great idea. I won’t be clicking on any Kelly stories in the future, either. I remember starting a Paris Hilton boycott a million years ago when she was inescapable. I’ve stuck to it all this time and I love knowing nothing about her! Looking forward to knowing nothing about Kelly, too.

    • Meg says:

      Remember kellys attempt at a singing career, her album was named shutup.
      No kelly you shut up

  2. Jess says:

    I just want white women to leave us (woc) alone.

  3. Chill says:

    The lady doth protest too much, methinks. Thanks Shakespeare.

  4. Liz version 700 says:

    Well I do think you are a racist Kelly, and your mother is dreadful. I am thrilled that you are fine with it. To be fair, you weren’t my cup of tea before I knew about the racism, but do please go away now.

  5. Becks1 says:

    omg she looks so different. What did she do? plastic surgery? weight loss?

    The thing is, all the white women tears aside, in that moment on The Talk, Sharon did not want to be educated. She didn’t ask, “why do you feel my support of Piers is problematic? He’s a longtime friend of mine, and I don’t think what he said about Meghan Markle was based in racism. But clearly there are some things I am missing. Can you fill me in?” (no it’s not black women’s job to teach white women what is and is not racist, but in that moment, asking that question would have been a lot better than insisting she was the one who had the right to cry, especially if she was genuinely asking from a non-combative standpoint.) But that’s not what she did. That’s not what she did when the show went on hiatus and she had some time to reflect. She just keeps insisting she isn’t racist.

    • damejudi says:

      Hitting the “like” button on this 1000x, @ Becks1!

    • Anna says:

      She terrorized Sheryl. White women, that is what terrorism looks like. One of the many ways that you weaponize your whiteness and your gender to inflict terror upon Black women. This is 101 class, example #1,001. White women’s tears cannot be set aside; they are one of the prime methodologies of terrorism that get us killed, time and again, throughout history. And for every story we know, there are thousands more that took place in secret or no one ever publicized or someone just disappeared.

      • KatianaD says:

        Terrorism? I don’t know the whole story but it’s more bullying as no one feared for their physical safety

      • Gillysirl says:


        past tense: terrorized; past participle: terrorized
        create and maintain a state of extreme fear and distress in (someone); fill with terror.

        doesn’t need to be physical harm. And not the same definition as “terrorism”

      • Lizzie Bathory says:

        Also to Anna’s larger point, yes, white women’s tears/claims of feeling threatened when they held power in the situation are also linked to literal terrorism in the US. See Emmett Till. Just a few miles from where I live (in a different state), we had a case that was very similar. Hell, see “Central Park Karen.” At this point, the Osbournes & their ilk don’t get their racism & its impact on people (or even their own careers!) because they don’t want to.

      • Becks1 says:

        I agree. to be clear, when I said “White women tears aside” I wasn’t trying to minimize Sharon’s actions in that moment (and afterwards), I just wanted to draw attention to the fact that Sharon’s actions there did not come from a place of “wanting to be educated.”

      • Gillysirl says:

        @Becks1 They never really want to be “educated” they just want a chance to refute whatever you try and teach them. They believe they’re right and they aren’t the slightest bit interested in growing or admitting they were wrong.

      • Yonati says:

        @Katiana D
        How do you know no one feared for their physical safety? I would have. Sharon Osbourne was crazed.

    • ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

      @becks you hit the nail on the head. If Sharon=Karen had done even the bare minimum to educate herself about racism before going off on her WOC co-host about making her cry, then I might listen to what she has to say about accountability culture. But Sharon=Karen didn’t bother to learn anything on her own so that she could ask intelligent questions to further her understanding of why defending Piers Morgan was viewed as racist. Don’t expect anyone to educate you if you can’t be bothered to take Racism 101 first. I would argue that Sharon=Karen being held accountable for going nuts on TV without even a modicum of understanding of the issue is exactly the change that we need to see to get these Karens to start educating themselves first.

    • Mia says:

      I recommend anyone who is still not fully convinced of how white women have historically benefited from the system of White Supremacy like their male counterparts to read ‘They Were Her Property’ by Stephanie Jones-Roger and also I recommend people read ‘Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America’. And if you want more examples, there is a never-ending historical well of white women also basing their right to vote off of the threat of black men getting the right to vote first and how insulting that would be.

      There is also some reading to be done on the practice in WWII of not allowing black women nurses to work in hospital wards serving white American soldiers, but demanding that they could put their skills to use in menial positions or in servicing German POWs because white women were too good for that sort of association/work with the enemy.

      Also available to read are the experiences of Mary Seacole and how apparently any attempt to recognize her contributions to the field of nursing is done so at the expense of Florence Nightingale.

    • clomo says:

      That is all I could see, she’s got a really bad case of the Khloe’s. Thank God for normal Chloe’s Kris used a K to lessen the tarnish on the goddess of the meadows(Greek, it’s a pretty name). How perfect Kelly starts with a K, they are all awful. Ozzie and the other sister are chill. How crazy is it that Ozzie is not the most loco member of his family. Kelly and Sharon are itches with a B.

    • Mustang Sally says:

      If there was no header on the article and you asked me who it was in the 1st & last picture, I would not have guessed it was Kelly. The only clue for me was the lavender hair.

  6. Merricat says:

    The Osbournes are seriously f*cked up people. No self-awareness.

  7. Izzy says:

    Ugh. Ship that whole family back to White Salty Folk Isle.

  8. CidyKitty(CidySmiley) says:

    Its really like this white woman fragility that is getting to me.

    People of color do not need to continue to be exploited, despised, mistreated and marginalized for white people to just exist.

    Also f*** your “counsel culture” or whatever, it is not a BIPOC person’s job to go about educating the world on how not to be racist, read a book, learn from the past, don’t be a big @sshole, it’s really simple. I don’t have to teach you anything.

  9. Darla says:

    Yes you should be afraid of “making a mistake”! Keep your big yap shut until you educate yourself, and don’t ask non–white people to do that work for you.

  10. hindulovegod says:

    I don’t “think” she’s racist so much as I observe it. She’s not trying to obfuscate or be subtle about it.

  11. ThatgirlThere says:

    She’s getting the attention that she wants. Her mother’s nasty and trashy actions have given Kelly something to talk about. What a gross and insincere duo. I just want them to be be put in their place. Better yet, just get lost and stay gone for good.

  12. Who ARE these people? says:

    I not only think she’s racist, I think she’s stupid and a talentless spoiled brat.

    So many accomplished, deserving people in the public sphere and we get…them?

    • josephine says:

      This. She’s led a hugely privileged life and has a job because of who her parents are. She brings nothing to the table but she just cannot stop playing the victim card. She is incredibly whiny and has no sense of self. I don’t think I’ve ever heard her say anything that doesn’t involve feeling sorry for herself.

  13. Amy Bee says:

    I had forgotten about Kelly’s comment about her latino maid. That entire family is racist.

    • Astrid says:

      And what about the time when Ozzy was outed for his affair with his hairdresser and Kelly gave out her name and phone number?

      • Darla says:

        omg i didn’t even know about that. that is unhinged. why didn’t she give out her husband’s private number instead?

      • Otaku fairy says:

        The Osbornes seem like regressive but non-religious white women who want to reap all the benefits of living in a more modern, more compassionate world without being expected to be those things themselves.

    • H says:

      I wouldn’t lump Aimee (the oldest Osbourne daughter) in with her mother and sister. She’s the one who said no way to the reality show and keeps a low profile. But yeah, I used the love Ozzy, his music and the MTV show. Drugs have friend his brain and Sharon and Kelly need to go away. This will also be the last post about them I click on. I hope they move back to the UK and hold Piers Morgan’s racist hand. They are both Karen’s.

      • MerlinsMom1018 says:

        Still love Ozzy’s music. But not his family. Well. I don’t know anything about Aimee. Except she’s under the radar and likes it that way.

  14. Cessily says:

    I think she is irrelevant and a very pathetically small minded person, but I do believe they showed the world exactly who the Osborn family is/was on their show. Trashy people with money.
    You would think with her sobriety issues she would develop some empathy but by all means continue to ask for sympathy while being a jacka**. Really wish this entire family would stay out of the press, they offer nothing positive to society.

  15. Nev says:


  16. Devs says:

    the pendulum has not swung “too far” in “the other direction”.
    this is so ridiculous.
    only deluded racist cranks think that black people’s liberation automatically means we will put white people into slavery.
    lol that’s guilt talking.
    a lot of alleged progressives don’t want true change because they don’t want to make necessary sacrifices for a better, more just world. people like kelly would be happy with just tolerating some (rich, light skin) black people in her neighborhood and on tv, anything else is “too far”

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      That whole pendulum analogy annoyed me, too. It isn’t like the “middle” was so great for anyone in the past except white people. And it isn’t, as you point out, a zero sum game.

  17. Nev says:

    She thinks it’s OKAY to say that?
    Proves she doesn’t know anything and has no intention to learn. Again HAVE SEVERAL SEATS.

  18. Miranda says:

    Well I’m glad SHE knows who she is. The only thing the rest of us are going to remember her for is being a racist who got the most expensive procedure from the cheapest plastic surgeon and STILL has to Photoshop herself to hell and back.

    • Hell Nah! says:

      Hey Kelly – pick A face.

      Then please go hide it in a cave of your choosing. Forevermore.

      Thanks, hon.

  19. equality says:

    Funny how she acts like being unhinged on TV has always been the norm. Previously, she and her mother would have been censored heavily for their big mouths. Why is it considered unreasonable to expect people to speak respectfully to one another as co-workers and television personalities? What is so terrible in caring what other people think?

  20. Brittany says:

    “before we find some normal ground and we figure out what’s right and what’s wrong”

    It’s not a mystery what’s right and what’s wrong here. Treating Black people as well as all people of color with human dignity has ALWAYS been right. If a woman in this century has not yet figured that out, COMPLETELY on her.

  21. Susan says:

    Okay, seriously. I haven’t looked at a pic of her in quite some time. WHO IS THAT IN THE TOP PHOTO?? If you are completely altering your appearance a la that Kardashian chick, any confidence or bravado you spout is fake confidence. Wow.

    And why is it the only people railing against cancel culture are those that have said some really stupid racist shit and have been cancelled?

  22. Gabby says:

    I would like to remind everyone here what she said about Latinx immigration:
    “Who will clean your toilets Mr. Trump?” the implication being that such work is the Latinx place in American society.

    Please do not take this as a defense of Donald Trump, it most certainly is not. Kelly Osbourne and her tiresome mother are much more like Donald Trump than they care to admit.

  23. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    I grew up in Texas during the 60’s (born in 57) at a time when white people (I am white btw) didn’t have truck to do with Hispanics or African Americans UNLESS you were being served by them, or they were cleaning your homes, etc…(not that MY parents had that kind of money). They were most definitely NOT to be invited into your home as friends, and no way were they allowed to come thru the front door EVER. (I later learned that coming thru the front door meant you were an equal, and welcome)
    My Dad absolutely refused to follow that nonsense. He invited anybody and everybody thru his front door and I can recall at least twice him telling people that nobody tells him who he can and can’t be friends with and have in his home. He lost some friends that way, I can recall some threats leveled at him, but he stood firm. My brother and I were taught from the time we could understand with conversations but most importantly actions that there is no excuse for treating anyone differently just because their skin color is different from mine. I taught that lesson to my girls and they taught their kids. Maybe it’s not gonna make a huge difference in the long run, but maybe in our little corner it helps
    As an aside 2 of my grandchildren are bi-racial. They hear things about themselves that aren’t all that pleasant and it usually comes from adults. It’s always adults who need the most education in my opinion.

  24. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I have never, nor will I ever, listen to anything this family says says about anything lol. I started listening to Ozzy’s music in the 70s and he’s part of my playlists today. End of the line.

  25. Kimberly says:

    came for the comments

  26. Lizzie says:

    Did I miss the memo that Kelly is someone beside the child of celebrities? I have no idea if she is racist because she, and her mother, are raving bitches to just about everyone. They dig deep for the most hurtful thing they can say about someone then double down on the comment.

  27. SurvivalIsTheGame says:

    Kelly and Sharon, please self-deport. Neither of you deserve our amazing So Cal weather or to have any platforms to spew your nonsense.

  28. Miss Melissa says:

    Consequences culture.

    Remember consequences? We’re bringing them back.

  29. Lizzie says:

    Top pic she seems to be channeling Ivanka. Second pic, how no class can you be?

  30. Maite says:

    She looks high as a kite in all these photos

  31. Aimee says:

    That first picture doesn’t even look like her. She must have the same plastic surgeon as the Kardashians.

  32. Sarah says:

    I keep looking at the photos trying to find any traces of her old face. Maybe she can get some work done on her attitude and change that completely, as well.

    • goofpuff says:

      Considering how much photoshop filter she uses on her pictures, they barely look the same from picture to picture.

      • elle says:

        The leopard print robe one is the only one that looks remotely like her original face – you can still see the Ozzy in it. The rest of them a) don’t look the same from one to the next and b) are unpleasantly Uncanny Valley-esque.

  33. Dl says:

    First of all how much does this young person hate the person she is to have so much plastic surgery that she is no longer recognizable at all? Second who is giving her a platform and why? She has done nothing but be an Osborne

  34. Justjj says:

    I’m not sure if it’s worth anyone’s time to even try to educate these two dodos.

  35. JaneDoe says:

    Not a racist, Kelly? (Or SUPPOSED-Kelly because i am NOT sure i believe the top pic is her. If it is then she has long since left the Ashley Simpson stop on the plastic surgery bus and has reached the Khloe Kardashion stop. The next station is Michael Jackson. Get OFF the bus, Kelly!!!) Anyway i clearly remember when Kelly was on some show similar to the Talk and they were discussing Trump’s proposed border wall. And Kelly loudly and triumphantly cries out; “Who is going to clean your toilet, Donald Trump??!! [If you stop letting Mexicans cross into the US] Rosie Perez was there and she was NOT NOT impressed with Kelly’s statement. That told me everything i needed to know about that bish. Because i think its the things we say spontaneously, without any prior planning or preparation or gauging of how our words will be received, that exposes who we really are. And while i dont really think that Kelly views all Hispanics as her possible future maids, i DO think that shes probably the type of white bish who is secretly SURPRISED to find out that her judge in court is Hispanic. Or that her Hispanic co-worker has a PhD. Or that her neighbor in Beverly Hills is a Hispanic CEO….etc etc..and this type of mentality, surprise that POC are achieving the same things, is racist. Not only is it racist, but i think it represents an EXTREMELY prevailent type of modern racism, one that infects virtually ALL POCs’ experiences on a daily basis. Kelly thinks that just because she’s not wearing a white cloak and lynching innocent black people, that she is not racist. She’s wrong.

  36. Mask4mask says:

    I used to watch The Osbournes reality show when it was on the air and being a screaming belligerent banshee was part of Sharon’s brand all throughout the show. Sharon has always been rotten. Kelly thinks her screaming banshees mom’s behaviour is ok bc that is always who sharon has been. A spoiled, abusive, belligerent, immature jerk that throws temper tantrums.

  37. Donna B. says:

    I remember when the osbournes were presented to the US media & that disgusting show they had showing their degeneracy to the world. I couldn’t believe television would allow that mess to be shown.

  38. Lovesitinnm says:

    She literally said there’s a problem with RACE which tells us everything! No, there is a problem with RACISM! God, all that money and they can’t be arsed to educate themselves even a little. Shameful!

  39. Kelsea says:

    I worked personally for Jeff beacher and he is the biggest asshole I have ever met. He enjoyed making people cry, throwing things and calling people the worst things possible. I Her working with him is all I need to know about her.
