Ozzy Osbourne has declared his support for his wife Sharon Osbourne following her exit from the CBS talk show The Talk.
In an Instagram post, the metal legend posted a photo of himself standing next to Sharon with the caption, “I can’t f***ing hear you!”, and the hashtag #TeamSharon.
Ozzy also put the same post in his Instagram Story while adding The Knack‘s hit “My Sharona” to play in the background.
Sharon has been embroiled in controversy since a March 10 segment on The Talk when she demanded co-host Sheryl Underwood explain why British broadcaster Piers Morgan‘s comments regarding Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey were racist.
“I feel like I’m about to be put in an electric chair because I have a friend [Morgan] who many people think is a racist, so that makes me a racist,” Sharon said.
The Talk has since been on hiatus, and several former co-hosts have accused Sharon of calling her co-workers racist and homophobic terms, and of creating a “toxic” work environment. Her exit from the show was announced last Friday.
In a statement, CBS said that, “Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace.”
