Sharon Osbourne slams Kanye West for 'representing hate' amid Ozzy sample row
11.02.2024 - 16:27
Sharon Osbourne has furiously hit out at Kanye West, saying he 'messed with the wrong Jew' in a recent interview with TMZ.
Her husband, former Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne, is currently embroiled in a row with the American rapper Kanye after he allegedly used a sample from one of the band's live performances without permission.
Ozzy claimed that Kanye had asked him beforehand, but his answer was no, due to anti-Semitic comments the rapper has made in the past - but he went ahead and used the sample anyway.
The Mirror reports that Ozzy took to his Instagram where he wrote: "Kanye West asked permission to sample a section of a 1983 live performance of 'War Pig' from the US Festival without vocals & was refused permission because he is an anti semite and has caused untold heartache to many. He went ahead and used the sample anyway at his album listening party last night. I want no association with this man!"
Sharon, whose father Don Arden was Jewish, has since weighed in on the row. In an interview with TMZ, Sharon took aim at the rapper as she said: "Kanye f***ed with the wrong Jew this time." The 71-year-old television personality said she and her husband Ozzy sent a cease and desist to Ye, adding that he “represents hate” and that he’s a “disrespectful anti semite".
However, Kanye then hit back by sharing a snap of the Osbournes on Instagram. In the picture, they are dressed up as Kanye and his wife Bianca Censori. He wrote: "He obviously has a celebrity handler who’s on his account.” Sharon also took to her social media to share a savage dig.
The former X Factor judge posted a clip of the viral "Hello...That's my F**king song" video of Dave Grohl and Lionel Richie. Sharon edited Kanye's name over Dave and Ozzy's
