Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s historic interview with Oprah continues to dominate news headlines. When the couple gave their first-hand accounts of the overtly and implied racism Markle has endured, many white people took it upon themselves to be offended.
Piers Morgan who has continually criticized Markle, stormed off Tuesday when one of his co-hosts on ITV’s Good Morning Britain criticized him for his continued, unnecessary critiques of Markle.
On Wednesday, Sharon Osbourne of The Talk burdened co-host Sheryl Underwood with white tears, asking her “educate” her [Osbourne] on racism as it pertains to Piers Morgan.
“I will ask you again, Sheryl — I’ve been asking you during the break, and I’m asking you again. And don’t try and cry because if anyone should be crying, it should be me,” Osbourne stated. She continued, “You tell me, educate me, when you have heard (Morgan) say racist things. Educate me! Tell me!”
A calm and poised Underwood attempted to explain to a contentious Osbourne, who continued interrupting her.
“It is not the exact words of racism; it’s the implication and the reaction to it,” Underwood explained. “To not want to address that because she was a Black woman, to try and dismiss it; that’s what makes it racist.”
“But right now, I’m talking to a woman who I believe is my friend,” Underwood continued, “and I don’t want anybody to watch this and (think) we’re attacking you for being racist.”
In true victim form, Osbourne responded, “I think it’s too late I think that seed’s already sown.”
When Black Twitter was made aware of the outcry, everyone responded accordingly.

Sharon Osborne, whose face is flooded with white woman tears, just told a Black woman not to shed tears of her own.
When I tell you I would flip all that shit over…Everything on that set would be upside down. Including the Botox in Sharon’s face. https://t.co/8H3UXjVUrU

Piers Morgan, Sharon Osborne and Meghan McCain can host a talk show called The Whine. White of course.

Sharon Osborne really sat on National TV, telling a black woman to educate her on Piers Morgan’s racist comments??? I would only assume since she stood up for him, she knows the comments he’s made or is she blindly supporting him? pic.twitter.com/Wts8EgmCEg

At the time of publishing, Osborne had not back-tracked on any of her comments.
