Kelly Osbourne Apologizes For Tr*nny Comments

kelly osbourne apologizes for tranny comments

When Kelly Osbourne sat down for an interview with Glamour UK, she opened Pandora's Box with a comment about her ex cheating on her with a "tranny."

Now, for those unaware, tranny (for some) is derogatory term for the transgendered community.

Kelly told the magazine:

Having to tell them (my parents) my fiancé had cheated on me with a tranny who sold his/her story to the press (was the most uncomfortable moment). It was so humiliating.

Everyone kept telling me that Luke was cheating on me, but I never believed them. It's hard enough to get your head around someone cheating on you, but when someone is a chick with a d**k? Up until then, I'd always thought that the worst way to get cheated on would be with an ugly girl. Don't you think?

Whoa, whoa Kelly! Simmer down there!!

And simmer down she did. She later apologized for what she calls her own ignorance:

The word “tranny” is a derogatory and hurtful word. I was completely ignorant to this and soon came to realize most of my peers and LGBT friends are too. This is a word I will no longer use or allow.

Transgender people are some of the bravest people on Earth and among the LGBT community. I cannot imagine the courage it takes to live your life openly and honestly, reflecting who you truly are, or the hurt that comes from having to hide who you are because others may not support and accept you.

My sincerest apologies to any ally or member of the LGBT community whom I have hurt or offended.

So now does everyone know? "Tranny" is NOT a nice word. If you use it, you're either lacking compassion or ignorant.

We're glad Kelly apologized though. Her actions speak louder than her words and we believe she's always been a supporter of the LGBT community.

    Re: Elron Hubbard - Con Man – agree I have gay friends and their not offended by the term gay or tranny so what i want to know is who exactly are all the "offended" people?



  5. 5

    oh god, the LGBT people need to lighten the fuck up. no one likes a cry baby



  6. 6

    Okay I really tried to keep my mouth shut here, but since she thought it bad to be cheated on with an ugly girl.. Can you get any uglier than that poor girl? Also, call me ignorant if you must (although I prefer uneducated on the subject) but Is transvestite also a derogatory word?

    Sick of ev1 getting pissed when “ a word““ is used!
    Over IT!



  8. 8

    Shut the fuck up, I use tranny all the time and so do the trannies. Tranny is a light hearted fun word.



  9. 9

    The LGBT and PETA should join forces and become a supergroup..Whiniest bunch of crybabies in the effing world…



  10. 10

    Ummmm……..her mom, Sharon Osbourne, is a TRANNY ! Well, looks like one…changing from man to woman….



  11. 11

    Re: Elron Hubbard - Con Man – I thought they used the word "tranny" themselves, too. I never knew it was offensive either. Everyone seems to be so overly sensitive these days.



  12. 12

    Re: reply to this – Not ignorant - I'm with you…not sure if it is considered derogatory or not. I agree that she is not exactly a beauty :/



  13. 13

    If this is a recent picture, then she is FAT again ……

    I thought that "tranny" applied to a wide variety of those in the trans-world. I mean, it seems to be less about being offensive than it is in not wanting or being able to ID the exact or proper trans- situation of a person. It could apply to someone whom one might not know FOR sure is a transvestite or a transsexual. Or then there is the transgendered, too, who can sometimes be in their birth form or maybe who only dress as transvestites but who could also possibly be under some transsexual treatment (hormonally or surgically. So while any term can be used "meanly" if that's the intent of the person, some terms can just be tossed around when one is vague or unaware of exactly what it is they're looking at.



  16. 16

    Her brother looks like a TRANNY, too !



  17. 17

    Lindsay Lohan is starting to look like a TRANNY these days, too….



  18. 18

    I hear the word all the time from gays and trannies, and it's never used as or implied to be a derogatory word.



  19. 19

    Cum to think of it, Kelly is look'n awfully masculine these days…extra weight and all …………..

  20. yeez says – reply to this

    Mario, you're the only person who finds "tranny" offensive. Would it be more polite if I were to ask someone if they had gender reassignment surgery so I could properly determine if they were a transsexual or a transvestite?

  21. Pls says – reply to this


    21

    Words that hurt people suck. Although sometime I wonder if we just trade a label (set of letters) for a new label (set of letters). Like remarketing to ourselves. Andersen consulting –> Accenture anyone? As long as each time we educate ourselves along the way….that is important.



  22. 22

    Oh please. I used to bartend in a gay bar, upstairs where the drag shows were. Plenty of those girls stayed in drag full time and called themselves trannies. In fact, I've *never* heard it used in a derogatory manner. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen, but I've never met a transvestite who *didn't* say the word.



  23. 23

    tranny tranny tranny



  24. 24

    She should look as good as most trannys
    Kelly is one ugly bitch, with those piano legs, and pig face



  25. 25

    Oh please, since when was "tranny" a derogatory word instead of short for "transsexual" or "transvestite"?



  26. 26

    Gays really are uptight bitches. Tranny is just an abbreviation for transvestite. Thats all. ITS A SHORTENED WORD. How on earth can they claim its an insult..stop you whining you bunch of babies before you get eradicated.



  27. 27

    god, she's hideous… she looks exactly like her dad when he was younger - not a good look for a woman. yuk. well, her personality these days matches her hideous face, at least. i used to think she was kinda cool but girlfriend's trying too hard to be relevent.. too hard to impress stupid celebs these days, and being a total snotbag. get over yourself, kelly.



  28. 28

    I should find my ex's old friend, the transsexual, and tell her to stop calling herself that then. Since YOU decide who gets to use words and all.



  29. 29

    Oh my God do we all have to have the fake sense of harmony about a fricken word



  30. 30

    Those of you who are sooooooo PC, A kid got his ass kicked at UNION SCIOTO Highschool (ohio) during school while students watched and taped the beating so they could post it on face book with gay slurs. B4 the incident happened the kid was getting beaten up and went to teachers and adm. He was a smaller boy w/ a quiet voice and they told him to 'Tone down the gay" I suppose they thought he was singing show tunes down the hall. The bully broke his teeth and trauma to his head as kids watched and taped. But you LBGT and GLAAD organization have NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN BE THE WORD POLICE. Why don't you do s/thing for this kid…The whole school. Yhe kids who stood by and watched the "gay" kid get beat up it is on youtube U Trannys!



  31. 31

    Kelly O is the worst! She makes fun of others for money on the Fashion Police. She now does the very thing she blamed others of doing years ago to her; Bullying.

  32. @v@ says – reply to this


    32

    I didn't know that tranny was an offensive word. Like Nookies stated, thought it was just a shortened version of transvestite, being a straighty and all. Is straight an offensive word, straights? I don't want to miss out on being offended if I should be and all.

    Kelly is ugly.



  35. 35

    Tranny……



  36. 36

    Re: @v@ – HA! Love it. I say we start a movement. The terms "white" "straight" and "middle-class" are officially derogatory terms. I'm soo offended!



  37. 37

    In this photo, Kelly has more chins than a Chinese Telephone book !



  38. 38

    …and her roots are show'n !



  39. 39

    She's not looking very slim…. and I say this only because she likes to call people fat bitches, especially when she appears to be bordering on being the "fat" part of the "bitch" she already is…again.



  40. 40

    Now a days you can not speak. There is no freedom of speech. What a sad day



  41. 41

    I have no idea why this bitch gets publicity, anyway. She cannot sing, and I have no idea why E! hired her to give commentary on clothing. Remember all the tacky shit she wore when she was fat(ter)? (I still think she is. I hate her calves. They have to be bigger than my thighs.)



  42. 42

    Her remake is looking a little tattered around the edges. You know it requires ongoing maintenence. A remake two years ago is not going to carry her through for an indefinate period of time. Just Sayin One day she looks like a homeless person, the next, she bleaches her hair and she's a fashion commentator????



  43. 43

    Thank God we have a compassionate, caring person like Perez Hilton to educate us on how to be nice, thoughtful, non-judgemental people.



  44. 44

    George Orwell would approve!



  45. 45

    She has the look of Ozzie, and brains to match.

    Re: chels468 – Where's that line between being *sensitive* crossing over into silly? Let's picket anyway. Pack a flask.



  50. 50

    Kelly, you are getting fat again and your ego is totally out of control. Chill out. Calm down. This is karma for you jabbing at Christina. You should have never tried to hard to get back at her. You should have shown more class.



  51. 51

    ok so she apologises about using the word tranny but what about 'chick with a dick'? That's way worse! She's an ally when it suits her…

  52. s says – reply to this


    52

    so is calling a bisexual person bi derogatory?

  53. RB7 says – reply to this


    53

    this makes every one of us gay people seem like a over-sensitive whiny bitch, when in fact its just perez making mountains out of mole hills yet again. we're all for gay rights but ffs lighten up. if ur offended, so what? nothing happens when someone offends u, get over it. until u have genuine trannies coming forward and voicing their outcry over this then STFU.

    P.S: stylising the word Tranny as Tr*nny?!?!……are u fucking serious?



  54. 54

  57. 57

    Sharon Osboune is an annoying, arrogant, FAT, over bo-toxed Troll, shrill, Fishwife of a woman, who has passed these qualities down to her trashy daughter. Reallly - no class ! She is SO ANNOYING on The Talk …a dreadful human being. NO WONDER THE KIDS ALL WERE INTO DRUGS !



  58. 58

    ….AND kELLY HAS NO REASON TO BE IN THE SPOTLIGHT - what HAS SHE EVER DONE…CAN'T SING, CAN'T ACT….JUST AN ANNOYING, OBNOXIOUS LITTLE bRITISH bRAT FROM A wHITE tRASH fAMILY.

    65

    Fucking seriously?! This is offensive to trannies?! Is there ANYTHING that does not offend LGBT?



  66. 66

    She's a fat little piggie again. HA HA HA HA HA!



  67. 67

    Omg take your panties out of your butts your overly sensitive twits (and no I'm not saying all of you guys wear panties, hehe). But every time anybody even mentions something about the LGT and whatever that last letter is, they make it some sort of criminal offense. Get a life.
    The real crime is that people are still spending 150K on watches (Kris Humpy) and still manage to bitch about taxes. STFU already.



  68. 68

    Gawd, Kelly has got to be the ugliest drug addicted skank out there; I'm not kidding, she is really butt-ugly!



  69. 69

    Hey Kelly, you need to start sticking your finger down your throat after you pig-out….

    That Binge-N-Purge thingy has worked really well for that Demi Lovato chic….

    Re: Be-Atch – Wow. Sharon's one I'd want in my trench if there was trouble. Or not. She's forgotten more than you probably know in total.



  71. 71

    Her looks not so much…maybe she has a great personality.



  72. 72

    Re: @v@ – LOL 1 She is a BITCH, but one with NO CLASS ! And, Ug-leeeeeeeeee! Ever see the Hag without make-up ? Could be Ozzie himself !



  73. 73

    Kelly reads this site, so she is likely having a fit, yelling at all her lackeys, and running to the ugly mum for comfort…..the same mum who drove her to drugs ! Such trash !



  74. 74

    1. Kelly O has no business talking about someone elses look's she IS an "ugly girl" and has no room to judge others

    2. Tranny is not a derogatory term. I think lots of people are sick of this gay martyrdom.
    We get it, you're gay, life is rough and there are some assholes out there, but stop making a fucking issue out of everything or the fight for equal rights will fall on deaf ears.



  75. 75

    Re: Matrix – You ever see their old reality show??



  76. 76

    so what? the person IS a tranny! so what?

    and ps. she's ugly so why is she saying "the worst way to get cheated on would be with an ugly girl"

    she really thinks highly of herself since she lost weight!



  77. 77

    Kelly is ugly like the mum…Sharon has had so much work done, but TO NO AVAIL ! Still Ug-Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee !



  78. 78

    she looks like a tranny lol



  79. 79

    What?okay.seriously.Kelly Osbourne needs to shut the f***k up.because saying the word
    "Tranny"is offensive and lame.even if transgendered people use it.and I have a friend, who's gay,and he never says it.and Perez needs to stop posting stuff that's hurtful.



  80. 80

    Seriously, you replaced the "a" with an asterisk in tranny?!?! Puh-leez. Tranny is to transexual as gay is to homosexual. It's a lot easier to say tranny than transexual. She had no reason to have to apologize.



  81. 81

    The longest-running drag show in San Francisco is called Trannyshack. It depends on the person saying the word and the context in which they use it.
