Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan

(People) – Sharon Osbourne is standing up for her friend Piers Morgan in the wake of backlash following remarks he made about Meghan Markle.

On Wednesday, The Talk co-host said that she’s been accused of being racist for supporting Morgan, 55, after his controversial response to Meghan Markle’s recent interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Co-host Sheryl Underwood pushed back on Osbourne’s sentiment, asking: “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?”

A very emotional Osbourne also demanded Underwood explain when Piers had said something racist.

“I will ask you again Sheryl, I’ve been asking you during the break and I’m asking you again, and don’t try and cry cause if anyone should be crying it should be me,” Osbourne said.

“Educate me!” Osbourne, with tears in her eyes, said. “Tell me when you have heard him say racist things.

Underwood responded that “it is not the exact words of racism, it’s the implication and the reaction to it.”
