Okay, the hot topic today is Kelly Osbourne! I saw the clip of Kelly on the View today. She was trying to make point in regards to Donald Trump and his racial statement regarding Mexicans and immigration. Kelly said on the View, “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?” This made Rosie Perez upset and looking angry by Kelly’s statement. This isn’t the first time Kelly has used the wrong words in expressing herself. Six months ago, Kelly made a remark about actress and singer Zendaya’s Oscar dreadlocks made her look as if she smelled like “patchouli and weed.”
I was very upset with Kelly’s statement about Zendaya’s hair and I totally understand how the Latino community feel about Kelly’s recent statement. I like Kelly Osbourne but I think she says the wrong words that gets her into a lot of hot water! Look, Kelly had a valid point with 43.6 percent of Latino women working in the service industry as maids and housekeepers per the recent Federal Labor Bureau report that was posted in February 2015. There is nothing wrong with working in the service industry…it’s an honest job! African-Americans worked heavy in that industry as maids, housekeepers, nannies, and cooks for many years until the Latinos came over in the 1980’s in heavy numbers and needed to work quickly, the service industry was an easy field to get into to take care of your family. Kelly just needed to bring on her facts and maybe used better words to explain what she was saying!
We can’t get upset at facts and real talk! If its real facts, I can’t get mad or upset at it! Donald Trump would lose a lot of his hotel revenue if majority of his housekeeping staff all of sudden quit! If you look at all the hotel’s in the United States and their staff, you will see the majority of them being Latino/Hispanic! A lot of rich and middle-class families would be without nannies, housekeepers, cooks, and maids! People, it’s the truth! However, please don’t take this as if Latinos/Hispanics have not made strides in other areas because that would be stupid to think that! Latinos are making achievements everyday in every field, just like African-Americans! African-Americans and Latinos have a very similar background in America and everyday are trying to make improvements and strides for its people! Latinos are a huge piece of America, period!
Back to Kelly! Kelly meant well and I know she is British and uses certain words that can come across just wrong! She has been in the United States for a while now so no excuses for not knowing what to say! When you are trying to make a point, please use correct words and bring on the facts! Kelly, please take some classes in using the right words when referring to people of different races and maybe talk to the Latino community on what to say next time! I have Latino/Hispanic friends…I am sure Kelly does if she lives in Los Angeles or New York, go talk with them on the politically correct way to say things! Kelly in’t getting a full pass on her comments but I totally understand what she was saying and it came from a place of “meaning well and trying to diss Donald Trump!” Let’s not call Kelly a racist on this statement because this isn’t the case at all! She just used the wrong words and I think we all have at one point in our lives used wrong words to explain our viewpoints! You want to attack people with real racist viewpoints…look at the real racists like a Donald Trump!
