Seems like Kelly Osbourne’s sentiments about the Latino community are akin to Donald Trump’s.
The Project Runway Junior Judge was a guest host on The View earlier today and spoke about Trump’s most offensive comments about the Latino community. The clip below shows her saying: “If you kick all Latinos out of this country, who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?” Co-host Rosie Perez was quick to point out that “There’s more jobs than that in the country for Latinos, and Latinos are not the only people who clean toilets.”
Now Kelly has released the following statement statement through her publicist (it also appears on her Facebook page).
“I want to start by saying I ALWAYS take responsibility for my actions. In this particular case I will take responsibility for my poor choice of words but I will not apologize for being a racist as I am NOT. I whole-hearted fucked up today. I don’t want to bullshit anyone with lame excuses. Although, I was stopped mid-sentence by Rosie and couldn’t finish my point I will not let Rosie take responsibility for my words. I should have known better as I was on The View and it was live. I’ve learned a very valuable lesson. It is my hope that this situation will open up a conversation about immigration and the Latin community as a whole. By the way I clean my own fucking toilets.”
