Kelly Osbourne really stepped in it this time. While discussing Donald Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants on The View, Osbourne made a very poor choice of words:
“If you kick every Latino out of this country then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”

Let’s watch the awkward moment unfold.

Awkward for sure. Rosie Perez and Raven-Symone quickly responded, letting Osbourne know those aren’t the only jobs Latinos do. Osbourne maintained that she meant no harm.
Once the words left Osbourne’s mouth, it was too late.
I'm not sure what came out of Kelly Osbourne mouth right now on the View regarding latinos but she's about to feel the heat on social media

There were a few speculations about an apology…

Kelly Osbourne's statement is probably going to sound like:
"I'm sorry, I'm not racist…"
"Some of my closest friends are Latino."

And some felt betrayed.

Somehow, Devious Maids made it into the conversation.
I hope those of U who are angry at Kelly Osbourne's Latina comment r just as angry at the stereotypes of Devious Maids on Lifetime.

Osbourne’s comment gave way to it’s own hashtag, #QueridaKellyOsbourne.
#QueridaKellyOsbourne my parents struggled to survive in this country even AFTER graduating from college where they were the only Hispanics.

#QueridaKellyOsbourne there's nothing wrong w scrubbing toilets, what's wrong is assuming that it is our *only* value to US society

Wait? Why is Rosie apologizing to Kelly?
And people are wondering why Rosie apologized.
WTF did Rosie Perez need to apologize for? KElly Osbourne seems to think Latinos only cleaning out toilets, Rosie had a right to be upset
