Fans have hit out at Kelly Osbourne after she exposed her controversial thoughts about using Ozempic - s a drug primarily used to treat Type 2 diabetes - as a weight-loss aid.

Speaking to E! News on the red carpet at Dolly Parton's Pet Gala event last month, the star made some comments about how people were hating on those who use Ozempic to lose weight quickly because they were too broke to afford the treatment themselves.

"I think it's amazing," Osbourne told the outlet on January 30. "There are a million ways to lose weight, why not do it through something that isn't as boring as working out?"

She was then asked what she thought about the backlash towards the trend.

"People hate on it because they want to do it," the former reality TV star said. "And the people who hate on it the most are the people who are secretly doing it or pi**ed off that they can't afford it. Unfortunately, right now it's something that is very expensive but it eventually won't be because it actually works."

Have a look at the interview below:

Naturally, the comments did not sit well with fans, with many of them taking to X to express their opinions on the tone-deaf comments.

"Diabetics can’t get life-saving treatment but Kelly Osbourne is putting it down to hating and being broke," wrote one user while another criticized the star writing: "I love Kelly Osbourne and always admired growing up, but her take on ozempic is worse than last week's trash. My mom had to wait 6 months to be able to get a prescription for her diabetes. Rich people are the worst I hate it here."

A third branded her comments as "insensitive & stupid takes."

"She’s really great at coming across as tone deaf," another X user added.

This is not the first time the star has found herself in hot water for making "insensitive" or "tone-deaf" comments.

Back in 2015, she went viral for an awkward blunder while discussing Donald Trump's stance on immigration on an episode of The View.

Check out the viral moment below:

During the passionate discussion with her co-panelists, it appeared like Osbourne was about to drop the mic when she said: "If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilets, Donald Trump?"

...And, as you can imagine, that comment also did not go down as she may have hoped. Honestly, I cringe just thinking about it.

Fast forward eight years since that fateful day and Osborne re-visited it during an interview with Rolling Stone.

"[It was the] most cringe moment of my entire life," she said, describing it as the "worst thing" she's ever done, noting that her words "came out so wrong."

"Oh my God, I died," she said when asked about her reaction to the clip resurfacing on social media.

"It hurt a lot of people, and that to me, is by far makes it the worst thing I've ever done. I realized that I'm not great on live TV and that words are so powerful. And to be labeled as something you're not is really difficult. But it happened. There's nothing I can do," she continued.

The reality TV star then went on to clarify that she was actually trying to emphasize the fact that the "whole country is built on immigrants."

"I feel very strongly that Latin American culture is the backbone of America," she told the outlet. "I believe that Latin Americans are the hardest-working people you will ever meet."
