Ozzy Osbourne declares he's 'Team Sharon' as he backs wife in sweary Instagram post after she's axed from US talk show

OZZY Osbourne has backed his wife Sharon in true rock 'n' roll style, with a very sweary rant.

The Black Sabbath star, 72, threw his support behind his embattled wife who is out of work after leaving The Talk and declaring he was 'Team Sharon'.

Ozzy posted a photo of the pair at a red carpet event with Ozzy holding his hand up to his ear, as though he was having trouble hearing.

"I can’t f*cking hear you! #TeamSharon," the music legend captioned the post.

On Friday, CBS announced Sharon, who was the last remaining original host of the show, “decided to leave The Talk” after 11 years.

Absolutely “livid” over all the allegations being made against her and the situation with The Talk, the alum is reportedly planning to sue CBS for “damages over her departure,” according to Mail On Sunday.

CBS also confirmed in the statement that The Talk will continue to be on hiatus for the foreseeable future while the cast makes its transition. 

"Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave The Talk," CBS announced on Friday. 

"The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. 

“As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace. 

Backlash and "racism" allegations against Sharon began after she got into a tense on-air argument with co-host Sheryl Underwood regarding Piers Morgan's "racially insensitive" behavior toward Meghan Markle.

Sharon defended Piers and his "freedom of speech," but Sheryl attempted to explain that racism's not always "the words themselves" but the "intent or way they are said" but Sharon kept fighting back.

Piers was also confronted for his views by costar Alex Beresford, which saw the former GMB host storm off on live television.

He'd locked horns with Alex live on air as they debated the Meghan Markle Oprah interview, with Piers storming off set before quitting the programme entirely just hours later.

After Sharon accused the network of also “We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts," it added.

The network continued: “At the same time, we acknowledge the network and studio teams, as well as the showrunners, are accountable for what happened during that broadcast.

"As it was clear the co-hosts were not properly prepared by the staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving race. 

“During this week’s hiatus, we are coordinating workshops, listening sessions and training about equity, inclusion and cultural awareness for the hosts, producers and crew.
