The CBS talk show will stay on hiatus for another week after a discussion about racism involving co-host Sharon Osbourne went off the rails last week. Osbourne reacted with anger and profanity when asked to talk about her support and friendship with British TV personality Piers Morgan.
The fallout from the charged discussion during The Talk on Wednesday continues, with the network issuing a statement to Deadline Friday night. “We are committed to a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace,” CBS said. “All matters related to the Wednesday episode of The Talk are currently under internal review.” During Wednesday’s episode of The Talk, which is not made available online by CBS, Sharon Osbourne broke down after being called out by co-host Sheryl Underwood for giving “safe haven” to Piers Morgan’s allegedly racially-charged comments about the Duchess of Sussex.
