Try not to be such a “hypocrite” Sharon Osbourne!
The outspoken wife of former addict Ozzy Osbourne has been an active participant in the boycott against the Beverly Hills Hotel, after the owner, the Sultan of Brunei, enacted conservative Islamic criminal laws that call for the stoning death of homosexuals and adulterers in his own country.
However, her recent trip with her husband’s band to Abu Dhabi, part of the United Arab Emirates that also has strict anti-gay laws, has cries of hypocrisy flying about Sharon.
The outrage was swift against Sharon on line, with critics labeling the rocker wife a “hypocrite” for the concert location and support.
@zennie62 Sharon Osbourne’s husband’s band Black Sabbath is also touring Abu Dhabi.. Sharia law enforced there. Hypocrites?

Sharon Osbourne doesn’t understand the concept of “hypocrisy” http://t.co/POx6YiMKfc

“Sometimes people just do things based on emotion and without thought,” website Zennie62.com wrote about Sharon.
“The bottom line is the Sultan of Brunei’s not going to sell a property who’s very value has been inflated by the boycott, even while its workers get hurt in the pocketbook, and Sharon Osbourne runs around the World acting like a hypocrite.”
Seemingly oblivious to the contradiction in her stance against the workers of the Beverly Hills Hotel and her husband’s band performing in an area with the same strict laws, Sharon has yet to justify the band’s appearance in Abu Dhabi or her own visit to the conservative area.
