Oooh damn son! The ingredients in this NBC/Osbourne discrimination jambalaya sure are getting SPICY!!
Yesterday, Sharon Osbourne reportedly quit NBC's America's Got Talent because NBC had allegedly fired her son, Jack Osbourne, from a new reality show due to his Multiple Sclerosis diagnoses.
Then, earlier today, we posted NBC's reaction to Sharon and Jack's accusations, in which a rep claimed nothing official had ever been signed concerning Jack's participation on the show, and that they had even offered him alternative roles, which NBC alleges Jack turned down. The media giant also claims NBC NEVER discriminates employees based on anything - ever.
Well, Jack has whiffed some smelly bovine poo and took to Twitter to call NBC out on their rank excretions!
Hmm, what a giant lameballz mess!
Yesterday, reports surfaced that Sharon Osbourne was quitting NBC talent competition America's Got Talent, claiming NBC had discrimintated against son Jack Osbourne. According to Sharon, the network 'fired' him from a new realilty show Stars Earn Stripes after the network learned of Jack's recently-diagnosed Multiple Sclerosis disorder.
But NBC is saying no, no, NO discrimination! The media peacock claims nothing was ever finalized and that they were only in talks with Jack about a major role on the show. NBC also alleges they offered Jack two other substantial parts on Stars Earn Stripes, which he apprently turned down.
NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt recently expressed:
The matriarch of all things metal, Mrs. Sharon Osbourne, has quit America's Got Talent after seven seasons of spicing up the judges panel!
And NO she is not being fired from the show, and NO she isn't heading over to rival talent-competition American Idol…
Sharon claims she is quitting in solidarity with her son Jack Osbourne, who Sharon alleges was unjustly fired via e-mail from NBC reality series Stars Earn Stripes days after he went public with his multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis!
Sharon shared this morning:
While we never condone numbing the pain of anything with alcohol - especially given her history with substance abuse - we can imagine how difficult and overwhelming everything is right now in her personal life.
But luckily, Kelly Osbourne is not making any excuses for her recent behavior on a flight to Atlanta, as many passengers reported her getting so drunk that she had to be carried off the plane upon landing, and is speaking very candidly about what exactly caused her to lose her cool!
Kelly Osbourne must really be afraid of flying!
The British-born Fashion Police star got
f*cked up embarrassingly boozy during a recent plane trip from LAX to Atlanta.
A witness on the flight says everything started out fine, explaining:
We heard the SUPER sad news last week that Jack Osbourne had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and ever since, Jack's been speaking out about the disease and how it's been affecting him.
Jack recently stopped by his mom Sharon's show, The Talk, to reveal a pretty unfortunate situation that he came across after his diagnosis.
Take a look at the clip (above) to hear about Jack getting FIRED from a job because of his MS!
Talk about ignorant…AND illegal!
MS can potentially be a disabling disease, but people with it are STILL able!
While the news of Jack's diagnosis is devastating, we're glad that he's been able to bring awareness and hopefully help educate others on multiple sclerosis!
To hear Osbourne talk more about the symptoms he's had, as well as explain the disease in his own words, check out the video… AFTER THE JUMP!
So sad! This family has already been through so much.
Jack Osbourne, son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Multiple sclerosis is a "disease that affects the central nervous system – the brain and spinal cord – and can cause problems with muscle control and strength, vision, balance, feeling, and thinking."
Jack received the bitter news just two weeks after he and fiancee Lisa brought their beautiful baby girl Pearl into the world. Jack opened up about his shocking diagnosis just this afternoon, saying:
"I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, 'Why now?' I've got a family and that's what's supposed to be the most important thing."
You've got nothing if you don't have your loved ones and your health. Fortunatley for him, the Osbourne family as a pretty impressive track record of beating the odds. Jack is sure to be just like the rest of his fam and come through this with flying colors.
You're in our thoughts, Jack. You and your whole family. Stay strong.
