The View Co-Hosts: Kelly Osbourne Was Misunderstood, Not Racist

Kelly Osbourne The View

Despite Tuesday’s on-air kerfuffle, there’s no bad blood between Kelly Osbourne and the ladies of The View.

At the top of Wednesday’s episode — for which Rosie Perez was unfortunately absent — Whoopi Goldberg defended the former Fashion Police host, insisting that she was misunderstood by viewers.

(In case you missed it, during a discussion of Donald Trump’s immigration policy, Osbourne posed this question: “If you kick every Latino out of the country, then who is going to clean your toilet, Donald Trump?”)

“The point she was trying to make is that Trump’s stance on immigration will only hurt the people [he’s] counting on,” Goldberg explained, adding that people are often misunderstood on live TV. “You try to get your point in, and you try to hit it, and you sometimes step in dog doo. … Your head works faster than your mouth, it happens.”

Raven-Symoné also jumped to Osbourne’s defense: “I’m best friends with Kelly. … I don’t think she’d be a racist if she was friends with me.”

Perez, for her part, already apologized to Osbourne for the misunderstanding in a tweet on Tuesday:

So there you have it, folks. Nothing more to see here.
