“I feel even 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,” Osbourne stated of Morgan on March 10. She later stated that neither she nor Morgan was racist, however admitted that she “had a go” at Underwood and requested for an schooling about what he’d stated that was racist.
