Kelly Osbourne is being ridiculed after making a remark about Latinos cleaning toilets on a live panel show.

Osbourne came under fire when she attempted to criticise Donald Trump’s controversial proposed immigration policies by asking:“If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”

Realising her gaffe, she then attempted to defend it, telling her fellow panelists on The View: "In the sense that…you know what I mean? But I’m saying that in LA, they always… No, I didn’t mean it like that! Come on! I would never mean it like that! I’m not part of this argument."

Her comments were met by a fierce backlash and Osbourne released a statement shortly after admitting she “whole-heartedly fu**ed up” and regretted her “poor choice of words”. But her statement did little to appease many people, who took to Twitter to mock her comments with their own examples of success.

Los Angeles Dodgers baseball player led a barrage of sarcastic tweets, telling Osbourne he was off to the stadium "so I can clean the toilets in the clubhouse".
