Jeremy Clarkson brands Sheryl Underwood a 'wetty’ for PTSD claims amid Sharon Osbourne row

Jeremy Clarkson brands Sheryl Underwood a 'wetty’ for PTSD claims amid Sharon Osbourne row

Sarcastically, he added: “But I wouldn’t be able to give her a nickname, of course, because that would give her even more PTSD.”

It comes after the former X Factor judge, who stood down from her role on the American chat show, clashed with former co-star Sheryl whose views did not align with Piers’ over Meghan and husband Prince Harry.

Piers had criticised the Duchess’ claims that she suffered with her mental health and faced racist comments during her time within the walls of the Palace.

But Sharon hit back at Sheryl’s probe, saying on the programme: “I feel even like I’m about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend who many people think is a racist so that makes me a racist.”

“She knew she would get abused by the woke brigade for tweeting this – but did it anyway because it (sic) what she believes.”

Following backlash from viewers, Sharon later apologised for her actions in a lengthy post on Twitter for her 2.3 million followers to see.

It read: “To anyone of colour that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said.

“I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive and allowed my fear and horror of being accused of being racist take over.”

She went to say that she was “not perfect” and “will continue to learn, listen and do better” in the future.”

Sharon Osbourne off 'The Talk' after review into heated racism discussion

Sharon Osbourne off 'The Talk' after review into heated racism discussion

Sharon Osbourne and co-host Sheryl Underwood had a heated exchange about Osbourne’s support of British TV personality Piers Morgan on the March 10 show.

LOS ANGELES — CBS says Sharon Osbourne will no longer appear on its daytime show “The Talk” after a heated on-air discussion about racism earlier this month.

The network said Friday Osbourne had decided to leave the show after a review that found in part that “Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace.”
The network said its internal inquiry said the show’s co-hosts, including Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood, were not properly prepared by the show’s team for a discussion on race. But it said there was no evidence found to support Osbourne’s claim CBS ordered she be confronted about her support of British TV personality Piers Morgan.
Morgan, who is a friend of Osbourne’s, left “Good Morning Britain” after saying he didn’t believe Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, when she said in an interview that she had considered suicide when unhappy with her life in Britain’s royal family.
“The Talk” has been on hiatus while the March 10 discussion was investigated. CBS said it had conducted workshops and training this week “about equity, inclusion and cultural awareness for the hosts, producers and crew.”
There was no immediate comment from Osbourne’s publicist.
No replacement has been announced. CBS said the show will not return until April 12.

During the discussion of Morgan, Underwood asked Osbourne, “what would you say to people who may feel that, while you’re standing by your friend, it appears that you gave validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered that is racist, even if you don’t agree?”
Osbourne replied angrily, using words that were bleeped out, and said she felt like she was being placed on “the electric chair” for having a friend that some people think is racist.
After a commercial break, the discussion continued with Osbourne telling Underwood at one point: “Don’t try to cry. If anyone should be crying, it should be me.”

“As it was clear the co-hosts were not properly prepared by the staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving race.

“During this week’s hiatus, we are coordinating workshops, listening sessions and training about equity, inclusion and cultural awareness for the hosts, producers and crew.

“Going forward, we are identifying plans to enhance the producing staff and producing procedures to better serve the hosts, the production and, ultimately, our viewers.”

The Talk is set to return in the US on CBS on April 12.

“I will ask you again Cheryl, I’ve been asking you during the break. I’m asking you again, and don’t try and cry, cause if anyone should be crying it should be me.

“This is the situation, you tell me what you have heard him say, educate me, tell me when you have heard him say racist things.

“Educate me. Tell me,” she pleaded.

“It is not the exact words or racism, it’s the implication and reaction to it.

“To not want to address that because she is a black woman, and to try and dismiss it, or to try and make it seem less than what it is, that’s what makes it racist,” her co-host explained.

A spokesperson said: “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.

“ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.”

Piers said of his exit today: “I had a good chat with ITV and we agreed to disagree. I’m just going to take it easy and see how we go.

“I believe in freedom of speech, I believe in the right to be allowed to have an opinion. If people want to believe Meghan Markle, that’s entirely their right.

“I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth and I think the damage she’s done to the British monarchy and to the Queen at a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital is enormous and frankly contemptible.”
