Sharon Osbourne said Meghan Markle ‘ain’t Black’ in resurfaced clip from ‘The Talk



Sharon Osbourne said Meghan Markle ‘ain’t Black’ in resurfaced clip from ‘The Talk


Rediscovered footage of Sharon Osbourne harshly commenting on Meghan Markle’s Blackness emerged online, as the co-host of “The Talk” confronts allegations of making racist and homophobic remarks aimed towards her former coworkers.

In the video footage, which has since been published by Metro, Osbourne responds to her cohost Sheryl Underwood’s suggestion that the Duchess of Sussex “brought Blackness to the royal family.”

“She ain’t Black,” Osbourne said three years ago on the program, dismissing Underwood’s claim. When her co-hosts told her that Meghan is mixed, she said, “Yeah, no, I know, but she doesn’t look Black… to anybody.”

Eve, a rapper, was quick to say that ‘Black people come in all different colors. That’s a whole other different discussion about how Black you look or not look… that’s a whole discussion we don’t need to have.’

Osbourne came under fire recently after defending controversial TV host Piers Morgan for remarks he made about Meghan on Good Morning Britain.


“I feel like I’m about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend who many people think is racist, so that makes me a racist,” Osbourne remarked.

“I will ask you again, Sheryl. I’ve been asking you during the break,” she added later in the show. “And don’t try and cry because if anyone should be crying, it should be me. This is the situation: You tell me where you have heard him say racist things. Educate me.”

In the 2012 “I Won’t Stand For …” campaign, the Duchess of Sussex talked about her experiences with prejudice as a multiracial person. The duchess’ mother is African-American, while her father is Caucasian.

Despite the fact that Meghan describes herself as “half black and half white,” the royal family and her detractors seem to perceive just one thing: Meghan’s Blackness, or lack thereof.

This narrative generates a never-ending dilemma that may have an impact on a Black person’s sense of self and identity: being “too Black” for some and not “Black enough” for others.

When addressing the incident with Morgan, Osbourne subsequently tweeted that she “panicked” and was “blindsided” by her co-hosts on television. She went on to say that this made her “defensive”

“To anyone of color 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. There are very few things that hurt my heart more than racism so to feel associated with that spun me fast,” she added.

Following the airing of her discussion with Underwood, Osbourne has been publicly accused of making racist remarks about her former co-host Holly Robinson Peete, as well as using racial slurs and homophobic remarks to refer to her previous co-hosts Sara Gilbert and Julie Chen. A report referenced several unidentified sources, as well as former “The Talk” co-host Leah Remini, who went on the record in the piece.

Owens and Osbourne’s provocative comments invalidate Meghan’s racist treatment — purportedly from the British monarchy and definitely from the British press – and verge on denying her existence as a biracial lady with a Black mother and a white father.

Following the contentious debate, Deadline reported that The Talk would not broadcast while CBS investigates the situation internally.

The network later issued the following statement to Deadline about the show’s extended hiatus:

‘We are committed to a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace.

‘All matters related to the Wednesday episode of The Talk are currently under internal review.’
