Oh dear. Oh my. Kellykellykellykelly. Kelly Osbourne caused a shitstorm of controversy online this morning following her comments on The View.
The panel was discussing – what else? –Donald Trump’s comments on Latinos, when Kelly proclaimed: “If you kick all the Latinos out of this country, who would clean your toilet…”
Kelly’s co-hosts Raven Simone and Rosie Perez were slackjawed for a moment before jumping in to say: “There’s more jobs than that in the country for Latinos and Latinos are not the only people who clean toilets,” while Kelly added: “You know I didn’t mean it like that. I’m not part of this argument.”

Although some people defended her and claimed it was a slip of the tongue, others have said her words were offensive.
Kelly has yet to comment further, although I’m sure some major spin doctoring is coming soon.
