Sharon Osbourne Slammed For Revealing She Sent Assistant Into Burning Home, Then Sacked Him
Sharon Osbourne is facing criticism after a revelation about how she sacked a former assistant during an appearance on Would I Lie To You?.
The music manager and former X Factor judge was a guest on the Christmas special of Would I Lie To You? on Thursday, where she shared a story about how she forced one of husband Ozzy Osbourne’s former staff members to go back into a house fire to retrieve some of her family’s expensive artworks.
Recalling the story, Sharon revealed that after lighting candles in their living room one Christmas, she came downstairs to discover that Ozzy’s arm and “half his hair” were on fire, angrily remembering that the assistant in question was “sleeping” at the time of the incident.
After helping Ozzy, Sharon told her fellow panellists: “I thought, right, where is that [censored] assistant? So I go into the guest house, and he’s like ‘is everything alright?’ and I’m like, ‘no, the house is on fire, get out and help, go in and get the paintings out’. And I said, ‘you must go in and find the dogs’.”
She continued: “So he has humming and ahh-ing – this ex-assistant – so anyway, he did get the dogs. And the fire engines arrived, very lovely people, and they came and they had this oxygen for the assistant. So I said, ‘how very dare you. You work here. You get more paintings out’.”Sharon then claimed she took the mask off Ozzy’s former assistant’s face and “put it on my dog”, to applause from the studio audience. 
Host Rob Brydon then questioned how the assistant came to be sacked, to which Sharon responded: “Well, after this terrible night, he was not talking to me. And Ozzy and I were recounting everything, we were laughing and laughing, and [the assistant] said, ‘I don’t see what’s funny about any of this’.
“He said ‘I think I’m going to have damaged lungs’, and I mean… ‘please’. So then, I just said ‘if you don’t think that’s funny, do you think this is funny… you’re fired!’.”Sharon then confirmed the story was true, but while her fellow panellists laughed off the revelation, many people on social media were shocked by what the TV personality disclosed...@wilty Sharon Osbourne: ‘I made an assistant enter a burning building, gave his oxygen mask to my dog, and sacked him.’ Laughter. Applause.Including this mean-spirited anecdote on the show—especially without any critical comments from other guests—seems like a real misjudgement.— Matthew Hunt (@mhuntuk) December 27, 2019My favourite TV programme but clear proof that getting the guest list correct is crucial. Usually the mix ranges from good to excellent but Sharon Osborne was awful. Safe to say she won’t be asked back #WILTY— Ian McGuffog (@IaMcGuffog) December 27, 2019Me @ Sharon Osbourne on would I lie to you pic.twitter.com/4zhgMZRw8s— Jonno. (@Jonno_de_Costa) December 27, 2019I nipped into the kitchen at the start of Sharon Osbourne's go on #WILTY, and now I'm wondering what the hell I missed, because there's no way that level of twisted lack of regard for other people is funny.— Dawn (@justanotherdawn) December 26, 2019@WILTY_TV sharon Osbourne that's not even funny, that's actually shocking! #vile— David Robinson (@Robinson92David) December 26, 2019Sharon Osborne, a woman worth $200m, just said on BBC One that she forced a member of staff go into her burning house to collect artwork, then sacked him when they didn’t laugh about it the next day. That’s.. vile? 🤔📺— Benjamin Butterworth (@benjaminbutter) December 26, 2019WILTY is my favourite show on TVI found Sharon Osbourne's story very upsetting.Please re cut this episode.I see it has been picked up by the Newspapers.— Jude Hider (@JudeHider) December 27, 2019Sharon Osbourne forced employee into fire to get art then sacked him for not laughing - Mirror Online ⁦@MrsSOsbourne⁩ my opinion of you has just changed. If true, you’re not a nice person at all. https://t.co/8R1t0WyMOl— C (@smithyj23) December 27, 2019Sharon Osbourne's story made the whole cast look bad. Baffled as to why include it.— AbFAB (@AnikBay) December 27, 2019I have not seen much of Sharon, but I hope @BBC never have her back on. What's sadder is in a room full of comedians no one had a joke and the audience laughed. She told the story with such Glee and enjoyment. Wonder who the PA was?— Robin Bremner (@BremnerRobin) December 26, 2019As if it wasn't bad enough laughing about forcing an employee in to a burning building to recover materialistic objects which were likely insured & then terminating the staff member's employment when they "didn't find it funny", @MrsSOsbourne brags about taking their oxygen mask?— Olly (@W0llyams) December 26, 2019Sharon Osbourne's PR people #WILTYpic.twitter.com/1rn3FjJIUi— Dave Williams 🌹🕊 (@realdavedoubleu) December 27, 2019HuffPost UK has contacted representatives for Sharon Osbourne for comment.
