On The Talk last week, co-host Sharon Osbourne addressed her recent war of words with Lady Gaga and asked her to stop her fans from bullying online. Recently, Sharon wrote an open letter to Lady Gaga after the pop singer slammed Kelly Osbourne in a post on her blog, which incited fans to issue death threats against her and the Osbourne family.“Don’t Let Your Fans Be So Hideously Damaging, Hurtful, Violent, (and) Spread Violence on your Website. If You Are a Mother Monster, Monitor it.”
Sharon Calls Out Gaga
Below are excerpts from the show:
SHARON OSBOURNE: My opinion is, Gaga wants a kinder world. Don’t let your fans be so hideously damaging, hurtful, violent, spread violence on your website. If you are a mother monster, monitor it. She has a huge group of people that work for her that monitor her website. Why haven’t you, as a responsible young woman, said “No violence on my website, no violence, no threats, no violence.” However, everything is guns, guns, guns…Cut to her first performance on this new tour. She’s wearing two guns coming out of her breasts. Now, on her website, if anybody had the time to pick out how many times guns, guns, guns were mentioned, this is not right and she should be stopped.
AISHA TYLER: You feel like what you would like is for her to, because if people look up to her…
SHARON OSBOURNE: All I’m asking her to do is to say, stay true to her foundation, which she said she wants the world to be a braver, kinder world. Don’t wear guns, don’t allow your fans to use the word guns on your website, on your Twitter. Don’t do it. Have it stopped. One word from her, they will stop.
SARA GILBERT: And it’s scary, we’ve seen recently how easy it is for one person…
SHARON OSBOURNE: One young person that wants attention. One person that wants attention, it takes nothing for this to happen. Over her not wanting to lean out to her little monsters to say, “Hey guys, I love you, I understand you, not everyone does. Please don’t be violent on my site,” because it reflects badly on her.
