    "Sharon Osbourne really showed her true colors, didn't she?"

    Last week, Sharon Osbourne was on the British show Would I Lie to You?

    The show's premise is that celebrities reveal embarrassing stories — some true and some untrue.

    She told a story about firing her assistant for showing "no humor" during a house fire.

    One Christmas, Sharon and Ozzy's living room caught fire after they lit a candle and went to bed. The alarms then went off. "I heard, "Sharon, help me! Help me!'" she said.

    "I pushed Ozzy out. Then I think, 'Right, where is that ... assistant?'" She told the assistant, “Get out. Help. Go in, get the paintings out."

    "I said, 'You must go in and find the dogs.' ... He did get the dogs. ... Then [the firemen] came and they had this oxygen for the assistant. I said [to the assistant], 'How very dare you. You work here and you get more paintings out right now.' And I took the mask and I put it on my dog."

    "Ozzy and I were ... laughing and laughing. [The assistant] goes, 'I don't see what's funny about any of this. I think I'm gonna have damaged lungs.' ... I said, 'If you don't think that's funny, do you think this is funny? You're fired.'"

    As for whether or not the story is true, Sharon revealed that is 100% a true story.

    People did not find the story funny:

    I looked up the story after I saw this and may I say wow FUCK Sharon Osbourne https://t.co/llnQ1CdpjM

    Sharon Osbourne really showed her true colors, didn't she.

    This is absolutely unbelievable. Sharon Osbourne reveals that she sent an employee into a burning house to retrieve their dogs and paintings, then took his oxygen mask and put it on one of her dogs. She then sacked this employee for not finding this story funny. BBC also amused. https://t.co/PAKUuBxnpy

    If Sharon Osbourne admits this and thinks it's funny than I can only imagine the things she's done and won't admit to. I hope now that she's admitted to it her former assistant can sue the shit out of her. I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy. It's just wrong on so many levels. https://t.co/gXSOfVCVX3

    So it seems it’s acceptable for the rich and famous to abuse, bully staff and then boast about it for laughs, as long as you are a woman. Watch the clip in the comment below and as you can hear @MrsSOsbourne cares more about her dog then the personal assistant she hires. https://t.co/lAeeL5kOCH

    Messed up that Sharon Osbourne turned out to be a a horrible upper class monster who thinks it's funny to force her employees to risk death and then laughs about how she fired them afterward. Who could have predicted?

    Sharon and Ozzy have yet to comment on the backlash, but we will update you if they do.
