(Newser) – Kelly Osbourne is offering a quick apology for a joke about Latinos on the View today. During a discussion about Donald Trump's own disparaging remarks about immigrants, Osbourne said, “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilets, Donald Trump?" reports US Weekly. When co-hosts Rosie Perez and Raven-Symone immediately criticized the comments, Osbourne replied, "You know I didn't mean it like that. I'm not part of this argument." After a blizzard of criticism on social media, Osbourne has apologized in full on Facebook: "I whole-hearted f----- up today."

"I want to start by saying I ALWAYS take responsibility for my actions," she wrote. "In this particular case I will take responsibility for my poor choice of words but I will not apologize for being a racist as I am NOT." She adds that she hopes it starts a larger conversation and about immigration, and concludes, "By the way I clean my own f------ toilets."
