Sharon Osbourne has exited from CBS‘ The Talk. This comes after a heated on-air conversation about race with co-host Sheryl Underwood about race, and accusations of racism from other colleagues.
After an internal investigation, CBS released a statement, saying: “The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace. We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts.”
On March 10th, Osbourne defended her friend Piers Morgan, who also left his show in Britain over his comments about Meghan Markle following her interview with Oprah Winfrey, during which she revealed suicidal feelings and moments of extreme racism at the hands of the Royal Family and the media.
