Sharon Osborne Sheds White Tears, Asks Sheryl Underwood To 'Educate' Her On How Piers Morgan Is Racist

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.

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