kelly-osbourne-apologizes-for-offensive-latino-remarksKelly Osbourne landed herself in hot water when trying to make a point about presidential hopeful Donald Trump on ?The View?. The ?One Word? songstress offended many viewers when she said, ?If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump??

Following the controversial remarks, other co-hosts were taken aback and trying to stop Kelly for speaking further but she went on. ?In the sense that ? you know what I mean? But I?m saying that in L.A., they always?,? she said, before being interrupted by Rosie Perez. ?Latinos are not the only people doing that,? Rosie noted.

?No, I didn?t mean it like that, come on,? replied Kelly. ?I would never mean it like that! I?m not part of this argument.?

Kelly then took to Instagram to apologize for her remark but she refused to be called ?racist.? She wrote, ?I want to start by saying I ALWAYS take responsibility for my actions. In this particular case I will take responsibility for my poor choice of words but I will not apologize for being a racist as I am NOT. I whole-hearted f***ed up today. I don?t want to bulls**t anyone with lame excuses.?

?Although, I was stopped mid-sentence by Rosie and couldn?t finish my point I will not let Rosie take responsibility for my words. I should have known better as I was on ?The View? and it was live. I?ve learned a very valuable lesson. It is my hope that this situation will open up a conversation about immigration and the Latin community as a whole,? she added. ?By the way I clean my own f***ing toilets.?

Rosie came in Kelly?s defense, tweeting, ?My apologies @KellyOsbourne, I took your point wrong-#Trump #Latinos. My bad. You?re heart is so pure & righteous. I adore you. @TheView.? Kelly?s mother Sharon Osbourne added, ?I want to thank the ladies @TheView for being so gracious to @KellyOsbourne today.?
