“If you kick all Latinos out, then who is going to be cleaning your toilets, Donald Trump?”
We’re still unsure as to why The View host Kelly Osbourne thought her response was any better than the businessman-turned-Republican presidential candidate’s outlandish comments on immigration. Her Tuesday morning remarks didn’t sit well with co-host Rosie Perez, who later apologized for cutting Osbourne off, and many Latinos, who took to social media to educate a very misinformed Osbourne. However, many have come to the defense of Osbourne, who, ironically, quit her Fashion Police gig due to then-co-host Giuliana Rancic’s offensive comments about actress Zendaya’s dreadlocks.
Osbourne released this statement (“apology”):
“I want to start by saying I ALWAYS take responsibility for my actions. In this particular case I will take responsibility for my poor choice of words but I will not apologize for being a racist as I am NOT,” Osbourne wrote on Facebook. “I whole-hearted f**ked up today. I don’t want to bulls**t anyone with lame excuses. Although, I was stopped mid-sentence by Rosie and couldn’t finish my point I will not let Rosie take responsibility for my words.” Regardless of Osbourne’s “apology” or attempts to straighten out what she clearly ruffled, Latinos and allies joined forces to school the 30-year-old.

#QueridaKellyOsbourne Let me get this straight: You thought you could refute Donald Trump’s ignorance with your own? Oh, ok!
