Nearly one month ago, Kelly Osbourne’s rant about Donald Trump and Latinos on The View put a permanent stain on her career, which many people believe only exists because of her famous father.
“If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump? You know what I mean?”
Since then, Osbourne has been the subject of a brutal backlash. There have been petitions to get her deported, editorials condemning her for racism, and cruel memes on Twitter. Perhaps Osbourne thought that dancing with Nick Jonas on Sunday evening at the MTV VMAs would get her some respect. Unfortunately, it had the opposite effect. Vulture described Kelly’s comeback attempt.
“Not only was Kelly Osbourne a bumbling presence on the red carpet, she looked like your drunk aunt at a wedding reception throughout the first half of Nick Jonas’s preshow performance of ‘Levels.’ “
The comments after an article on the same topic by Us Weekly were brutal.
“Well, who knew that MTV would still allow Kelly ‘Hitler’ Osbourne to appear on their show. The racist idiot looked like a drunk sexually repressed pillsbury dough boy,” said commenter RebelFlop.
“Ewwww. She looks like she needs a bath. Like she’s stinking up the room even with air conditioning,” writes corbin56.
Let’s hope Kelly Osbourne stays off Twitter today.
The Wrap had an interview last weekend with Osbourne about Giuliana Rancic, whom Kelly threw under the bus earlier this year for allegedly being racist. Osbourne said that Rancic is not only a bad person, but a liar, as well.
Perhaps mentioning Rancic’s name isn’t helping Kelly Osbourne’s cause, especially since Osbourne publicly accused her of being racist by making (scripted) comments about singer Zendaya Coleman’s dreadlocks. In April, Osbourne talked to Entertainment Tonight about Rancic, and it was seen as passive-aggressive shade.
“There’s been so much drama surrounded by what went on at Fashion Police that I have chosen to keep quiet about. But I will say this: Giuliana is not often wrong. She really isn’t, but it’s been really, really heartbreaking to see her behavior that has transpired when she did get caught being wrong. That’s what broke my heart.”
Though Giuliana Rancic must be cheering at Kelly Osbourne’s karma, she has taken the high road throughout the whole ordeal. Perhaps Osbourne and Rancic may be friends again after the horrific backlash Kelly Osbourne is experiencing ends.
