Reality show star Sharon Osbourne made a statement Friday that she’d like the money she donated to Black Lives Matter refunded.

Osbourne was stopped in the street by a reporter who asked her about Ye’s recent stunt at Paris Fashion Week. The rapper, formerly known as Kanye West, was seen wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt during a runway show featuring his own line Yeezy, also known as YZY. West would go on to post a photo of himself in the shirt on Instagram, calling Black Lives Matter a scam in the photo’s caption. The TMZ reporter asked Osbourne if she thought the movement was a scam.

“Well, we gave $900,000 to [Black Lives Matter], and I’d like my money back, please,” Osbourne said, seemingly agreeing with Ye. “I’d like my money back.”


The 69-year-old admitted she didn’t quite understand the message the rapper was trying to convey. Ye would go on to give a television interview to explain his stunt more in depth.

“I don’t understand why white lives don’t matter. I don’t understand it. It’s not my culture,” Osbourne said. “Everybody matters, don’t they?”

Osbourne recently recovered from her career’s near-death status when her family’s reality television show received a reboot. She was “canceled” for supporting television host Piers Morgan’s free speech after the host said he would not listen to Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. After tweeting her support, she reiterated the view during a segment on The View, which she hosted at the time, which grew heated and ultimately resulted in her leaving the show. She suggested those that do not like Ye could just ignore him rather than attempt to “cancel” the rapper.

“Don’t go to his social media. Don’t listen to his music,” Osbourne said. “Leave the guy alone. Let him do what he does, and if you don’t like him, do that. Leave him alone.”


Despite his controversies, Ye won two Grammys this year, including best melodic rap performance category for “Hurricane,” alongside The Weeknd and Lil Baby, and best rap song for “Jail” along with Dwayne Abernathy Jr., Shawn Carter, Raul Cubina, Michael Dean, Charles M. Njapa, Sean Solymar, West and Mark Williams, and Jay-Z.
