WATCH: MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross Completely Eviscerates Sharon Osbourne
Piers Morgan’s recent comments about Meghan Markle were largely indefensible. That doesn’t mean, though, that his friends in Conservative media and entertainment weren’t going to try and defend them.
One of those defenders was Sharon Osbourne who left her job at The Talk after a dust-up with her co-hosts. Osborne is now trying to paint herself as a victim. Tiffany Cross, however, isn’t buying it and took Osbourne apart during her Saturday morning show.
The MSNBC host told viewers, “I read your apology Sharon, but your words are indicative of a bigger problem. The notion that in the moment, we have to maintain our composure and sympathize and empathize with your anger, masked by white tears, while people like you summarily dismiss our pain. It’s a recurring fault line in the intersection of race and gender, and begs the question, “Ain’t I a woman?”
“And this is clearly not an isolated incident, since CBS has put The Talk on hiatus amid other accusations of racism against the talk show host, which she of course has denied. So a message to the biggity Brit Sharon Osbourne. After this read, maybe you should go read, because there are numerous books which greatly detail how some of your ancestors colonized, raped, and pillaged many parts of the globe. And like you told Sheryl, don’t cry. We toast those tears and continue to do the work that benefits all people in this country, even those who don’t always deserve it.”
