Some might posit that public shaming on social media, while hilarious when it features a cat who has torn up a roll of toilet paper and is posing amidst the shreds, is perhaps not the most mature course of action for humans. Still, if you build it, people will use it to bash each other. And then their mothers will publicly defend them.
In case you missed the Internet yesterday, Kelly Osbourne took to Twitter to call out the hair stylist who allegedly had an affair with her father, thus catalyzing the Sharon/Ozzy split. She even posted her phone number in the Tweet. Ummmmm, okay…
The gossip hit our third favourite social media platform yesterday, but today Sharon Osbourne, Kelly’s mom, gave it new legs when she dished on the issue during an interview on The Talk Tuesday.
“I am always proud of my girl,” Sharon said. “What are you going to do — be angry with her because she loves her mum and dad and she wants us to be together? She loves us. She can do what she wants. She is an adult.”
You hear that, Kelly? You’re an adult. So, while it’s within your rights to publicly shame someone on social media, and despite the fact that your Mummy thinks it’s ok, we’d like to point out that some people (and we’re not saying us, but some people) might label that as an immature act.
You know, like something a child would do. Not an adult.
