It Was All A Set Up: Hot Mic Reveals Woke TV Producers Set Up Guest To Cancel Them
It was all a set up.
A hot mic has shown that “The Talk” co-host Elaine Welteroth was goaded by CBS producers to set up Sharon Osbourne and get her canceled.
In March, Osbourne’s close friend Piers Morgan walked off the set of his television show after criticizing Meghan Markle, he was canceled and accused of being “racists.” After the incident Osbourne issued a post supporting Morgan.
While Osbourne co-hosting “The Talk” she doubled down on her support for her friend and said she doesn’t share his belief but has his right to voice his opinion. The conversation turned into an argument that led Osbourne’s exit from the show and resulted in her getting canceled as well.
Audio obtained by the Dailymail shows that Osbourne was set up by producers. Welteroth who started the conversation at the request of the shows producers apologized to Osborne.
“They asked me to ask that question. I said, ‘No I’m not going to ask that question,’” she explained. “I said, ‘Wait, what’s the intention of this conversation? Because this can go left so fast. … I to them, ‘This is going to be a train wreck.’”
She added: “Sharon I’m just so sorry that went the way that it went.”
The audio allegedly recorded by a hot mic picked up Osbourne crying and said that she now looks “guilty” because they forced her to “defend herself.”
“I just want you to know, Sharon, [co-host] Sheryl [Underwood] loves you and respects you so much and had your back behind the scenes,” Welteroth continued. “She was not trying to attack you and I also understand when you have a night … of trolls f–king attack you online, that puts you in a position where you have to defend yourself.”
“She doesn’t think you’re racist, I don’t think you’re racist, no one who knows you would ever say that or think that,” Welteroth said. Osbourne, however, said that there’s a “f–king night and day difference” between Underwood saying “I don’t think you’re racist” and saying “I know you’re not racist.”
“That pain – it was like somebody punched me in the face,” said Osbourne.
“I want to apologize, I don’t know what I said, but maybe I didn’t say, ‘I know you’re not [racist],’ I might have said ‘I think,’ but I need you to know, I f–king know you’re not [racist],” Welteroth said.
“They set me up. CBS set me up,” stated Osbourne. “And they don’t care because they just want ratings. They don’t care. They don’t care that I will now have to go around with people thinking I’m racist. They don’t give a s–t. They just want ratings, that’s all.”
“It felt like we were all set up – particularly you – but I also felt set up,” she added.
Welteroth is a coward, she didn’t go with her gut, she knew what was going to happen and now she’s trying to save face.
