Sharon Osbourne Shares ‘The Talk’ Fallout, Death Threats, Cancellation

Sharon Osbourne says she received death threats from the public and was blacklisted by CBS following her departure from “The Talk” last year.

In March 2021, CBS announced Osbourne “decided to leave” the show following an intense discussion about race, a subsequent internal investigation, and a hiatus from the air.

Osbourne, 69, exited a few weeks after a heated exchange with co-host Sheryl Underwood. Osbourne expressed support for “her very good friend” Piers Morgan after he left “Good Morning Britain” over differing opinions about Meghan Markle following the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“They (CBS management) said to me, ‘You are on permanent suspension. We don’t think that you’re repentant enough. And we will decide whether you ever come back,’” Osbourne told the U.K. Sunday Times.

“And I said, ‘Well, who’s going to make that decision?’” she said. “And they said, ‘We can’t tell you.’”

On the March 2021 episode, the co-hosts talked about Morgan’s previous statements about Markle, which many deemed racist. Osbourne clarified during the interview, however, that she did not agree with Morgan’s opinions, but pressed Underwood to “educate” her about the racist undertones of his criticism of the 40-year-old. Osbourne would later claim that executives set her up for the conversation.

According to CBS, its internal inquiry said the show’s co-hosts, including Osbourne and Underwood, 58, 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 Morgan.

  1. It is not unusual that individuals from England show skepticism when anyone is critical of the Queen of England as that is a representation of their culture and some may be overprotective of what she represents to them. Underwood started to cry when Osbourne defended her friend’s right to have his own opinion. Underwood showed the same partiality towards Markle as Osbourne and Morgan showed towards the Queen. The difference is that Underwood defined not believing Markle’s claim as racist which was her opinion rather than fact but because she was showing emotion and cried, then she became victimized. Sharon’s reaction which showed some level of anger when accused of being racist was used against her. In reality nobody knows what happened behind closed doors with the Windsors.
