Donald Trump Jr. slams CBS for pulling ‘The Talk’ amid Sharon Osbourne drama

Donald Trump Jr. says it’s “insane” CBS has put “The Talk” on hiatus while they investigate a heated exchange between Sharon Osbourne and co-host Sheryl Underwood.

The show announced on Monday they were canceling their live shows until Wednesday to look into the dustup, which occurred after Osbourne defended her longtime friend Piers Morgan, who accused Meghan Markle of lying in her recent Oprah tell-all.

“This is getting insane!” Don Jr., 43, wrote alongside a tweet from Morgan. “Now other shows are being pulled off the air because someone who actually knows someone else doesn’t believe they’re racist simply because someone else accused them of it with no basis simply because he didn’t believe someone else. Got it?!?”

Morgan, 55, wrote on Monday of the controversy, “So ⁦@CBShas yanked The Talk off air while it investigates the ‘scandal’ of ⁦@MrsSOsbourne defending me when ⁦@sherylunderwood said I was ‘racist’ for disbelieving Meghan Markle. The REAL scandal is me being branded a racist for refusing to believe a liar.”

The drama first unfolded last week when Morgan walked off of “Good Morning Britain” during a debate with co-host Alex Beresford over Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Soon after, Morgan announced he was leaving the show for good.

His longtime friend Osbourne defended him shortly after, tweeting, “I am with you. I stand by you. People forget that you’re paid for your opinion and that you’re just speaking your truth.”

Then, during an episode of “The Talk,” Osbourne said, “Did I like everything [Morgan] said? Did I agree with what he said? No, because it’s his opinion. It’s not my opinion. But why is it that because I supported a long-time friend and work colleague of mine for years that everybody goes, if you support him, then you must be racist because he’s racist?”

Underwood replied that “the implication” of Morgan dismissing Markle was racist, rather than the words themselves.

After the debate, Osbourne posted a lengthy apology, saying she does not “condone racism, misogyny or bullying.”

In response, Morgan, who allegedly “thrives on the uproar,” attempted to demand his own apology from CBS.
