Sharon Osbourne sent a stark message to the execs over at NBC.... You fire one Osbourne, you lose them all!
Last month Sharon hinted that she would be leaving America's Got Talent and today it's become official... Sharon has QUIT!! So what's the reason behind her sudden departure?? Her son Jack Osbourne. Sharon feels that Jack has become a victim of "discrimination" and she will NOT stand for it.
"I just can't be fake... it's discrimination, and it was badly handled.. it's time to move on," Sharon tells the NY Post. Adding, "They can't make me do something I don't want to do."
Apparently Jack was suppose to appear on, Stars Earn Stripes, which is a military-based reality TV show, however the show's producer, David Hurwitz, admits that Jack "was somebody we were in talks with," but nothing was set in stone. And even though he wasn't guaranteed a spot, they were still willing to pay Jack's salary without him appearing on the show.
"He didn't want the money. He wanted his gig. It gave him something to look forward to when he was diagnosed. Think of the good that it could have done to show other people who have this [condition] that your life is not over."
NBC released the following statement: "Sharon has been a valuable part of the NBC family. We regret any misunderstanding and wish Jack well."
What do you think about Sharon leaving AGT?
