Sharon Osbourne Criticism For Madeline McCann Abduction Comments
Sharon Osbourne has been criticised for comments on the 2007 abduction of Maddie McCann from a Portugal hotel.
‘‘The former X Factor judge inadvertently referenced Kate and Gerry McCann on US chat show The Talk, calling their decision to leave the infant alone sleeping in their hotel room “insane”, reports The Mirror.
”While they were in the resort their baby was taken. And it is like, ‘Oh but we can see everything that is going on’ and it is, like, insane,” said Sharon.
However, a McCann family friend has reportedly called the comments “disappointing”, “ignorant” and “ill-informed”.
“She should think about the effect it could have on Madeleine’s brother and sister, as well as the wider family,” they said.
“Kate and Gerry have never forgiven themselves and this should not have been aired in a random way, as it apparently was. It’s based on ignorance of the true facts. While she’s entitled to her view she should keep it to herself.”
