In an episode broadcast on 10 March, Osbourne explained her support for the ex-Good Morning Britain presenter, who left the ITV breakfast programme after criticising the Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“Educate me. Tell me when you have heard [Morgan] say racist things. Educate me. Tell me,” she said to fellow co-host Sheryl Underwood.
Osbourne would later go on to say she was “truly sorry” to “anyone of colour that I offended”, and that she does not condone racism, misogyny or bullying.

“I’ve been called so many things in my life, I am so used to being called names, but a racist is one I will not take.
“I’m going to be just fine. I’m fine. As I said, I’m a fighter – I’m fine,” she said.
The TV personality also described former The Talkco-hosts Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete – who came forward with allegations about the star – as “disgruntled ladies”.
Osbourne has denied the accusations made by the two individuals.
She went on to add: “It’s not fair, because it isn’t about being a racist. It’s maybe about not knowing what is correct and woke for your language that day, because it changes from day to day.”
