Sharon Osbourne backtracks on her support for the former 'Good Morning Britain' presenter.
We're still feeling the after-effects of that Oprah, Harry, and Meghan interview. In the in-depth special which aired last weekend, Meghan Markle revealed to the talk show host that she had had suicidal thoughts while she was part of the Royal family. Following the interview, Piers Morgan remained adamant that he didn't believe what she said throughout the interview.
He also said that Harry was "spray-gunning" his family while his grandfather, Prince Philip, lies in hospital. The interview was recorded weeks before Philip became ill.
Following this, his 'Good Morning Britain' co-host Alex Beresford called him out live on TV, which resulted in Piers exiting the studio - and the TV show - for good.
Sharon Osbourne, who appeared on 'Piers Morgan's Life Stories' show in the past and is a good friend of his, stepped out to defend the presenter saying: "I am with you."
Now, however, the 68-year-old has backtracked on her initial support. She tweeted that "after some reflection" following her discussion from US chat show 'The Talk', on which she is a co-presenter, she would like to "address the discussion".
She continues: "I have always been embraced with so much love and support from the black community and I have deep respect and love for the black community.
"To anyone of colour that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry. I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive and allowed my fear and horror of being accused of being racist take over.
"I am still learning like the rest of us & will continue to learn, listen and do better. Please hear me when I say I do not condone racism, misogyny or bullying."
