Sheryl Underwood questioned why Osbourne would defend her friend and former America's Got Talent colleague Morgan, who generated outrage by expressing doubt over Meghan Markle saying she considered suicide. "What would you say to people who may feel that while you're standing by your friend, it appears you gave validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered that is racist, even if you don't agree," Underwood said, according to E! News. In response, Sharon explained that she's not trying to "slide out of" trouble, but genuinely doesn't understand his remarks to be racist. And she doesn't think she should be considered racist for defending Morgan. "I very much feel like I'm about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend, who many people think is a racist, so that makes me a racist?" she fired back. "What does it gotta do with me? How could I be racist about anybody or anything in my life?" After a commercial break, a tearful Osbourne asked Underwood to defend her claims against Piers, adding, "Don't try and cry because if anybody should be crying, it should be me." Meanwhile, Morgan thanked Osbourne for defending him, tweeting: "When stuff like this happens, true friends run towards you, fake friends run away. I love Sharon Osbourne because she always stays true to herself. She knew she would get abused by the woke brigade for tweeting this - but did it anyway because it what she believes."
