Kelly Osbourne Gets a Dose of Her Own Medicine
As ludicrous as all this self-flagellation has become, I must admit to rather enjoying the current flap over Kelly Osbourne's allegedly "racist" comment---which typically means it's true on some level and this is no exception; after all, we're constantly told that illegal immigrants "do the work no one else wants to do"---directed at Donald Trump about who's going to be "cleaning" his "toilets," if he "kick[s] every Latino out of this country."
In my view, it's just desserts for Osbourne, who, after co-hosting Fashion Police with the famously politically incorrect and hilariously funny late Joan Rivers for years, quit the show in a huff after fellow co-host Giuliana Rancic made a completely innocuous joke about singer Zendaya's dreadlocks reminding her of "patchouli oil" and "weed." And she later took to Twitter to accuse Rancic of being, what else, a racist.
It seems Osbourne's now getting a dose of her own medicine.
