Whoopi Goldberg Defends Kelly Osbourne Over 'Racist' Trump Remarks
She came under fire after asking on 'The View': "If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Mr. Trump."
Whoopi Goldberg is coming to the defense of Kelly Osbourne after she sparked outrage with a comment about Donald Trump.
On The View on Tuesday, Osbourne said: “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”
The comment was met with shock and silence on set.
On Wednesday, Goldberg came to Osbourne’s defense: “You try to get your point in and you try to hit it and sometimes you step in dog doo. It does not make you a racist.”
According to the DailyMail.com, Osbourne burst into tears during a commercial break, after realizing what a blunder she had committed.
After the show, Osbourne took to Facebook to take responsibility for what she had said.
"I want to start by saying I ALWAYS take responsibility for my actions," she wrote. "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."
Goldberg said on Wednesday: “If you've ever met a racist, it's pretty clear. They're pretty clear.”
And view co-host Rosie Perez, who appeared taken aback by Osbourne’s comment, also came to her defense on Twitter.
