“I feel like I’m about to be put on the electric chair because I have a friend who many people think is a racist. So that makes me a racist?” Sharon declined when Sheryl tried to explain that she “confirmed” Piers’ remarks by publicly supporting him.
“It wasn’t the exact words of the racism, it’s the implications and the response to it,” Sheryl told Sharon. “Refusing to admit that she is a black woman and trying to reject her or make her appear less than what she is makes her racist.”
“Right now,” Sheryl continued, “I’m talking to a woman who I think is my friend, and I don’t want anyone here to see this and say that we are attacking you because you are racist. “
Sharon replied, “It’s too late. I think the seed has already been sown.”
Their conversation immediately hit the headlines and went viral online. Sharon told Variety, “I’m a big girl. I’m a professional. However, CBS blinded me. I don’t know why they did it to me. The showrunners told me that it came from executives to do this to me.” “”
E! The news has asked both The Talk and Sheryl to comment on Sharon’s latest allegations. At this point we have not yet received a response.
