Former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has come to the defense of Sharon Osbourne after her exit from ‘The Talk’ over racism allegations.
“What’s happened to Sharon and me in the past fortnight isn’t really about Ms. Markle,” he wrote in a column for the Mail on Sunday, in which he noted that Meghan Markle was exploiting “woke world view” and “cancel culture” in her bombshell interview.
“It’s about a far bigger issue than one delusional Duchess, and that’s everyone’s right to be free to express our honestly held opinions, forcefully and passionately if we feel like it,” he wrote.
Sharon Osbourne left “The Talk” Friday, two weeks after she got into an on-air argument with her co-hosts while defending Piers Morgan after he was slammed for criticizing Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah.
“I feel like I’m about to be put in an electric chair because I have a friend who many people think is a racist, so that makes me a racist,” Osbourne said.
Morgan also tweeted about the controversy Saturday, posting a picture of himself with Osbourne.
“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. In tomorrow’s Mail on Sunday, I’ll tell MY truth about this woke cancel culture bulls*t,” he wrote.
