Kelly Osbourne Just Said An Incredibly Offensive Thing About Latinos On "The View"

"If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?"

Posted on

Former Fashion Police host Kelly Osbourne appeared on The View's panel Tuesday morning, when the topic of Donald Trump's comments about Latinos came up.

"If you kick all Latinos out of this country, who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump" - Kelly Osbourne

"If you kick every Latino out of this country," said Osbourne, "then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?"

The View co-host Rosie Perez responded by pointing out that “there’s more jobs than that in the country for Latinos, and Latinos are not the only people who clean toilets."

On Twitter, the #QueridaKellyOsbourne ("Dear Kelly Osbourne") hashtag has offered a platform for responses to Kelly's comments:

Maybe we can let @KellyOsbourne know why she needs to apologize. Starting with an explanation of what latinos do. #QueridaKellyOsbourne

#queridakellyosbourne my moms scrubbed toilets and raised a college professor who will use your shortsighted comments as example of racism

Brazilian Latina. Never scrubbed a toilet. Have a degree w/ F/T job. On my way to Law School. #QueridaKellyOsbourne https://t.co/wKVik7bol8

#queridakellyosbourne i am latina and i am an educator, with specialities in #stem. i've worked part time to make it through uni, so what?

#QueridaKellyOsbourne both of my parents have scrubbed toilets for a restaurant that they are the proud owners of for 21 years😊

#queridakellyosbourne I have 1 college degree and that's the least in my immediate family so wuteva ✋

#QueridaKellyOsbourne I'm a Latino I clean my own toilet. I also have a masters degree.

Kelly, you'll recall, quit Fashion Police following the media firestorm surrounding Giuliana Rancic's comments about Zendaya's Oscars hairstyle:

#queridakellyosbourne You quit a show because your co-host said something racist about Zendaya to prove you don't condone racism.. 🐸☕️

Rosie Perez posted an apology later Tuesday, saying she'd taken Kelly's comment the wrong way:

My apologies @KellyOsbourne, I took your point wrong-#Trump #Latinos. My bad. You're heart is so pure & righteous. I adore you. @TheView

Kelly took to Facebook Tuesday afternoon to apologize for her "poor choice of words."

We've reached out to ABC for comment and will update with any response.
