After sparking outrage over her racially insensitive remark about Latinos on The View, Kelly Osbourne has issued an apology.
In case you missed it, during this morning’s episode of The View, Kelly said the following about Latinos in America:
“If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump? In that sense that, you know what I mean?”
Kelly took to Facebook this afternoon to set the record straight.
Read her apology below.
I want to start by saying I ALWAYS take responsibility for my actions. In this particular case I will take responsibility for my poor choice of words but I will not apologize for being a racist as I am NOT. I whole-hearted fucked up today. I don’t want to bullshit anyone with lame excuses. Although, I was stopped mid-sentence by Rosie and couldn’t finish my point I will not let Rosie take responsibility for my words. I should have known better as I was on The View and it was live. I’ve learned a very valuable lesson. It is my hope that this situation will open up a conversation about immigration and the Latin community as a whole. By the way I clean my own fucking toilets.
