Five months after Kelly Osbourne criticized Giuliana Rancic for making racially insensitive comments on TV, the former Fashion Police co-host is finding herself under fire for the very same snafu.
A little background: Osbourne was a guest on Tuesday’s episode of The View, where the topic of conversation shifted to Donald Trump’s proposed immigration policies.
“If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?” Osbourne posed, rather sternly, completely unaware that such a statement could ever be deemed offensive.
Naturally, a few of the panelists objected to Osbourne’s comment — particularly Rosie Perez — but instead of apologizing, Osbourne proceeded to defend herself.
“I didn’t mean it like that,” she protested. “Come on, I would never mean it like that.” She even put her hand in Perez’s face — you know, to prove how not-rude she was.
To her credit, Osbourne did eventually apologize via Facebook that afternoon. Read the full, NSFW post below:
And there’s clearly no bad blood between Osbourne and Perez:
