Sharon Osbourne’s departure from the show came after an episode in April where she defended her friend Piers Morgan, who had left Good Morning Britain following controversial remarks regarding Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex.
Morgan has been accused of racism and Sharon later defended him to her co-hosts of The Talk: “I support his freedom of speech, and he’s my friend. I’m not racist, neither is Piers racist.”
The episode led to widespread criticism and Sharon made the decision to leave after CBS launched a review of the episode.
Now on SiriusXM, Ozzy Osbourne launched a defence of his wife.
“Well, she’s been through the mill of it and, you know, all I can tell you, if my wife was slightly racist, I’ll tell you she’s possibly the most unracist person I’ve ever met, and I’m not just saying that.”
Osbourne went on to say that his wife had “weathered the storm” but that she was “devastated”.
Sharon later apologised on Twitter for the comments she made on The Talk, stating: “To anyone of color that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry.”
