People are furious after Kelly Osbourne asks Donald Trump: 'Who would clean your toilet if you kicked Latinos out of the US?'

On Tuesday, Kelly Osbourne stuck her foot in her mouth while appearing as a guest co-host on “The View.”

When discussing Donald Trump’s recent controversial remarks about immigrants, Osbourne asked: “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump?”

Osbourne tried to explain her comments by reasoning that Trump takes advantage of the same people he relies on in his daily life.

But the other co-hosts were not having it. Raven-Symone immediately objected to Osbourne’s comments, and Rosie Perez snapped back: “Latinos are not the only people doing that.”

Osbourne’s remarks were quickly picked up and became a trending topic on Twitter in the United States and worldwide. 

People were not happy:

Shepherd then eased up on Osbourne:


“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg defended Osbourne during Wednesday’s show, saying that on live TV “you sometimes step in dog doo.”

“The point she was actually trying to make,” explained Goldberg, “is that Donald Trump’s stance on immigration would only end up hurting the people that Donald Trump is counting on.”

Co-host Rosie Perez also voiced her support for Osbourne, saying ast the end of the show: “Kelly Osbourne is on our side and I was sensitive. My disdain should go to only Donald Trump, so I’m sorry, darling.” She also tweeted:

Still, some people aren’t buying it.

In February, Osbourne quit the “Fashion Police” on E! after accusing co-host Giuliana Rancic of making another misinterpreted racist remark.
