Kelly Osbourne is weighing in on cancel culture after her mother Sharon stepped down as a co-host on The Talk amid a racism row.

The 36-year-old opened up about her views on how society treats people when they make mistakes – years after she also faced backlash over offensive comments she made about Latinos on The View.

Speaking to Extra, she stated: ‘I didn’t know what was really going on in this country because I just thought that simply being not racist was enough.

‘It’s not, it’s actually not, you have to be actively not racist and educate yourself and learn, and don’t be afraid to make a mistake, everybody’s so afraid of cancel culture I say f**k cancel culture, it’s all about counsel culture.

The former E! host continued: ‘Educate people, teach people… a gentle nudge in the right direction is so much better than a public execution.’

The TV personality also defended her mother in another chat on the Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino podcast.

She explained: ‘In order for there to be any sort of change, you have to make a mistake. How do you know what’s right and what’s wrong? I’ve made mistakes. My mom’s made mistakes. Everybody’s made mistakes.

‘But also, there’s two sides to every story and the media will only ever let you see the one. The one that gets the most clicks. The one that gets the most people fear mongered and outraged.’

The podcast host continued: ‘We’re living in a society where unfortunately our reality is always being challenged. So I have decided to create my own.’

Her mother Sharon left The Talk in March after an argument with co-host Sheryl Underwood about race.

The discussion was spurred on by Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, during which she alleged senior Royals ‘expressed concern’ son Archie’s skin colour.

Afterward, Piers Morgan sparked a race debate when declaring on Good Morning Britain that he ‘didn’t believe a word she said.’

He later quit his position on GMB after refusing to apologise, with Sharon among those speaking out in support of him for sticking to his guns.

On March 10, Sharon shocked viewers when she asked Sheryl to ‘educate’ her on ‘when you have heard him [Piers] say racist things’, while her co-star calmly responded: ‘It is not the exact words of racism, it’s the implication and the reaction to it.’

An internal investigation was later launched over their discussion before Sharon issued an apology for her conduct during the discussion with Sheryl, saying that she ‘panicked’ and got ‘defensive’ when she thought she was accused of being racist.

Allegations later emerged accusing Sharon of making racist and homophobic comments about former co-hosts of The Talk, claims that Sharon has adamantly denied.

The Talk, which airs on CBS, returned on April 13 after a month off-air, however the series suffered a massive slump – becoming the lowest-rated daytime show.

According to Soap Opera Network, The Talk came in last place in both the 18-49 and 25-54 women’s demographic and bottom in rankings for the 13 daytime talk shows on rival stations.

In March, the show was down 27% for its year-on-year viewership, going down from 2.057million to 1.505million.
