Former talk show host Sharon Osbourne, wife of heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne, has once again defended a socialite who questioned the woke narrative.
This time, she publicly agreed with rapper Kanye “Ye” West, who recently wore a White Lives Matter shirt alongside conservative commentator Candace Owens at a runway show in Paris. West followed that shirt by denouncing Black Lives Matter as a “cheating.”
“Everyone knows Black Lives Matter was a scam,” West wrote in a since-deleted one Instagram Post. “It’s over now. You’re welcome.”
Although the shirt and post drew backlash from many in the conversation IndustrySharon Osbourne came to West’s defense, claiming she now wants a refund for a BLM donation she previously made.
“We spent $900,000 on it,” Osbourne said TMZ Earlier this week, “and I want my money back!
“I wish [West] could have said that beforehand,” she added, laughing.
When asked about West’s “White Lives Matter” shirt, Osbourne expressed his confusion that anyone would disagree with his message.
“I don’t understand why white lives don’t matter,” Osbourne said specified. “I don’t get it. It’s not my thing, it’s not my culture. I don’t get it. Everyone matters, right?”
Although Osbourne admitted she doesn’t know the motive behind West’s latest antics, she encouraged those offended by West to ignore him.
“Don’t go on his social media. Don’t listen to his music,” she said. “Leave the guy alone. Let him do what he does, and if you don’t like him, do that. Leave him alone.”
Last year, Osbourne found herself at odds with others in the media when she defended TV presenter Piers Morgan, who had criticized Meghan Markle, wife of Prince Harry, for calling the British royal family racist.
“Did I like everything he said? Did I agree with what he said? no Because it’s his opinion. It’s not my opinion,” she said on her previous show, The Talk. “…I support him for his freedom of speech, and he’s my friend.”
As a result, Morgan and Osbourne have both been widely labeled as racists, but both have continued with their careers.
Osbourne, who has British and US citizenship and has been married to husband Ozzy for 40 years, turns 70 on Sunday.
