Sharon Osbourne ousted from “The Talk” after defending Piers Morgan’s comments on Meghan Markle

Sharon Osbourne has been ousted from “The Talk” after over 11 years following her defense of Piers Morgan’s criticism of Meghan Markle.

CBS issued the following statement:

The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace. We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts.

This was the exchange that caused the controversy.
