Sharon Osbourne Slams Lady Gaga in Open Letter

Sharon Osbourne has responded to the open letter Lady Gaga wrote about her daughter Kelly Osbourne and she is not happy!

The 60-year-old talk show host posted the letter on her Facebook account and condemns Gaga for being cruel to animals by wearing a meat dress and fur jackets.

“When I see you wearing fur, and using it as a fashion statement, the fact that defenseless animals have been killed so you can get your picture in the press is abhorrent to me. Shouldn’t you be teaching your “little monster” fans to respect animals and life?” Sharon wrote.

In case you missed it, read the full open letter from Gaga to Kelly.

Sharon Osbourne’s Open Letter to Lady Gaga

Ms. Gaga,

I am responding to your open letter to my daughter Kelly, and I am perplexed as to why you would go public with an open letter. Regarding this current situation; Kelly didn’t contact you, I was the one that contacted your manager today and the email is attached below for your reference. I reached out to him as Kelly’s manager and mother to ask him if you could address your “little monster” fans and stop them from writing libelous, slanderous and vile comments about my family, including death threats to Kelly. Your open letter is hypocritical and full of contradictions. And as your mother Cynthia supports you, I support my daughter Kelly. I must say your opinions on what is politically correct and acceptable totally differ from mine, but that is what makes the world so interesting…we are all different. How sweet that you have empathy for my daughter, as you feel that she has taken a less passionate path in life. You say her work on E! with the Fashion Police is “rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.” Welcome to the real world. Example, when I saw you wear a dress made out of raw meat, I was sickened. When I see you wearing fur, and using it as a fashion statement, the fact that defenseless animals have been killed so you can get your picture in the press is abhorrent to me. Shouldn’t you be teaching your “little monster” fans to respect animals and life? I don’t feel I have to justify Kelly’s choices in life to you. By your actions to Kelly right now, you have shown me that you are nothing more than a publicly seeking hypocrite and an attention seeker. You know it would have been much more dignified of you to do this privately. I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter. Are you so desperate that you needed to make this public?

You state “Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers.” Well this obviously is not translating well to your fans, as a large portion of them have not only been vile to Kelly, but also other celebrities such as Madonna, Adele and Rihanna. “You say a kinder, braver world” I don’t know what world you live in, but supporting disgraceful fan comments doesn’t fall under the words “kinder and braver.” It comes under the heading of bullshit.

In closing, stop wearing fur, stop looking for publicity, and stop using your fans to belittle not just Kelly but an endless stream of celebrities. A word from you would stop all the hideous, negative and vile threats from your “little monsters.” Let me know if you want to continue this debate. I’m an open playing field for you my darling.

Dear Vince,

You might recall that I wrote to you last year about Gaga’s fans bullying Kelly which you never really responded to. Well, it’s continuing again. I want you to read the blog below from a Lady Gaga fan.

Little Monster David @LilMonsterMaren
@MissKellyO LITTLE MONSTER ARTPOP : Kelly Osbourne needs to kill herself …

I thought that Gaga was a main campaigner against bullying.

Vince, I’m leaving it in your hands to do the right thing here. One tweet from Gaga can change this whole situation. I’m not asking her to deal with this directly but she if she could tweet something to her fans about being more respectful that may end this. I’m sure she doesn’t condone her fans saying such hideously offensive things.

Wishing you and your family the best in 2013.

All the best,

    Oh b!tch please, shut up! Just because she’s an Osbourne doesn’t mean Kelly has the right to be a meanie.. I’m with Gaga on this one. It’s astounding how a former fattie can laugh at other women who struggle with their weight. And besides, Kelly is still not pretty even thinner. And I won’t even call that skinny, she’s still a bit big. Stupid celeb kid

    it just doesn’t make sense. i am a total gaga fan all the way but she cannot decide what other people put onto the web…? she doesn’t decide what her fans say. kelly started this and was the one looking for publicity. fashion is art and people can wear what they want. fur? so what. get fake fur. meat dress? yeah do you know the meaning behind it? it’s showing that there is more to people then the meat on their bones. gaga did the right thing by the letter. it comes down to this. gaga can not tell people what to say, but she does a damn good job at showing people acceptance is growing.

    And this has to do anything with Sharon because? The one who’s husband bites animal’s heads off as a spectacle to get “fans” to come to their show? The ones who bullied their next door neighbors on their show because they were exercising their freedom of expression by throwing huge chunks of ham at them? Don’t be a hypocrite Mrs. Osbourne. Only reason you are even a somebody is by munching off your husband’s legacy. Go have a seat somewhere, retire and stay out of this. I am sure you responded as a way to get back to relevancy since, let’s not forget, you have lost your “lime-light”; IE: Getting denied entrance to a night club because i am sure no one recognized you. Don’t do this for ratings. Go away please. Your ****-show was cancelled for a reason; NO ONE CARES about you OR your family. Gaga Please don’t even bother answering to this massive thunder **** who now plays an advocate for animals and pop starts like Madonna after she’s made it clear she does not like her. Please learn your own life Mrs. Osbourne before opening your mouth to speak.

    I’m not even a gaga fan, but guys, stop saying ALL her fanbase is nasty, that is just RIDICULOUS. this is about a girl who is bitchy in a bad tv show, and then comes whining how people are mean to her. She can’t play that card.

    Wonderful letter, hope it ends the nastiness.
    Kelly is smart, funny and does wonderful commentary on the fashion world. She has a good eye for what works and doesn’t work and is articulate. I’ve watched every episode of Fashion Police, I think she is kinder than she has to be. I’m mystified that anyone would find fault with her and attack her in such a mean way for doing her job.

    Clementine Says:

    Christina got to be lol at all the drama…Kelly calls Christina Fat and ugly a lot on Fashion Police..and said its because Christina called her Fat for years..but I can’t find one video of Christina talking about Kelly’s weight…Lady Gaga let Perez Bully and Destroy Xtina career and never once stood up for her for the copycat Crap…As for Kelly. Gaga right, if you have a show where you can dish it out you need to learn to take it.

    BooBoo Says:

    You got to read Gaga’s original open letter.

    Gaga said so many rightful things because Kelly, on her Fashion Police Show, sits her ass judging and making fun of celebrities including Gaga for the way they dress or look on the red carpet or other public events.

    Kelly is part of a show that mostly rips celebrities off for the “poor” choice in fashion, hair, make up. When she and the show decided to slam Gaga, well Gaga’s fan began slamming her online. Now Kelly and her mother are playing victims when this was all started by Kelly!

    As Gaga stated in the open letter, she can not control what her fans say or do, but she has made it clear and most of her fans know that she does not condone bullying or the negative reaction that some of the fans have shown. Yet, Sharon must have missed that on Gaga’s open letter as Sharon’s open letter is still blaming Gaga for some of her fans reaction and negative comments toward Kelly.

    Read both Open Letters (Gaga sent hers first, then Sharon) you will see exactly that Gaga didn’t start all this drama, kelly did!
