Last month, Sharon Osbourne apologized publicly to the “woke” mob after she committed the supposed crime of defending British commentator Piers Morgan from dubious, convoluted allegations of racism.
This apology didn’t stop her exit from CBS’s “The Talk,” where earlier in the month she fought back fiercely when co-host Sheryl Underwood accused Morgan of perpetuating “white entitlement, privilege.”
Weeks later, Osbourne is now inexplicably hellbent on proving that she had indeed been apologetic about defending Morgan.
The latest hubbub in this “woke” saga happened over the weekend when Underwood claimed on her podcast that Osbourne had never apologized personally to her for the alleged crime of defending Morgan.
“When asked whether Osbourne reached out to her directly to apologize, Underwood gave a definitive ‘no’ and then went through her phone history to confirm,” according to People magazine.
When Osbourne learned of what Underwood had said, she responded by leaking screenshots of the apologetic text messages she’d sent to Underwood.
Obtained by the Daily Mail, the screenshots show that Osbourne reached out to Underwood on March 12th to say “I’m sorry.” The text message was sent two days after her explosive confrontation.
“My heart is heavy and I’m deeply saddened by the events that transpired on Wednesday. I don’t want to lose my true friend over this. Im sorry for telling you to f–k off during the break, I’m sorry for accusing you of fake crying while we were live on the air and I’m sorry for losing my temper with you,” she wrote.
She added, “I felt shocked, scared and saddened by what felt like was a blind sided attack. You know me. You know how I’ve always had your back. We’ve outlasted everyone on this show and that’s because we’ve always been a team and had each other’s backs. I consider you a genuine friend. If you want to talk on the phone over the weekend I’m here. Once again from the bottom of my heart I’m sorry.”
That was the same day that she released her public apology:

According to Osbourne, she also apologized to Underwood in person.
“I not only sent these messages to Sheryl but I apologized to her in person in her dressing room,” she said to the Daily Mail.
She added incredulously, “Why are you saying I never apologized Sheryl? What are you trying to do to me? Why are you trying to destroy my reputation? Just be honest. Tell me.”
The first text message reportedly went unanswered, so Osbourne sent another one on March 15th.
“I know you’re taking space and I don’t want to disrespect that. I’m just reaching out because I want you to know I’m thinking about you. If you are willing, can we talk before Wednesday. Big kiss,” the second message reportedly read.
This too went unanswered, so Osbourne sent another one on March 18th that reportedly read, “Sheryl I am thinking about you Hope you are are well Sending my love.”
One possible explanation for the discrepancy between these text messages and Underwood’s claim that she’d never received an apology is that she’d allegedly blocked Osbourne on her phone before March 12th but forgotten about it.
The other possibility is that Underwood is simply lying. Osbourne’s fans appear to believe the latter possibility is the straight-up truth.

Sheryl what a cruel unkind person you really are first you throw Sharon under the bus and now lie. You now look like a cold hearted liar with an agenda with no thought for anyone elses feelings. You have betrayed a friend who obviously cares about you and your feelings. Shameful

@sherylunderwood are you going to address the lies you told ok your podcast about Sharon not apologizing? You didn’t even deserve an apology but Sharon did apologize and you lied and said she didn’t. Shame on you liar.

Note what the latter Twitter user wrote: “You didn’t even deserve an apology.”
That’s not an uncommon view given that, one, Underwood had started it, and two, Underwood’s allegations of racism were and remain dubious.
“Why is it that because I supported a long-time friend and work colleague of mine for years that everybody goes, if you support him, then you must be racist because he’s racist?” Osbourne had bluntly asked during the March 10th airing of “The Talk.”
She hadn’t been suggesting that Morgan is racist. It’s just that he’d been accused of being racist for daring to criticize “woke princess” Meghan Markle and question the validity of her claims that she was once suicidal because of the Royal Family’s alleged racism.
“I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she said, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report,” he’d said earlier that week.
But for the apparent crime of simply defending the British commentator on Twitter, “woke” members of the public pounced, as did Underwood, who began rudely lecturing Osbourne about so-called “white entitlement.”
In response, Osbourne practiced something called self-defense:

To this day, it remains unclear why Osbourne ever apologized in the first place.
What’s known is that only a few days after she issued a public apology, her 11-year tenure with “The Talk” came to a screeching halt.
