Kelly Osbourne 'hails' controversial weight loss drug after mum Sharon's warning

Kelly Osbourne 'hails' controversial weight loss drug after mum Sharon's warning

Fans have taken to social media to share their reactions to her remarks

Kelly Osbourne has 'hailed' the controversial weight loss drug taking Hollywood by storm, despite mum Sharon branding it as 'dangerous'.

Now, unless you've been living under a rock for the past year or so, you'll know that Ozempic is trending amongst a whole bunch of celebs - including former X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne.

Incase you're unsure of the science behind it, the weekly Ozempic injection - also referred to as the 'skinny jab' - suppresses a person's appetite by mimicking the hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1).

Kelly Osbourne has revealed her thoughts on the 'Ozempic craze in Hollywood'.

The hormone is usually released after eating, making people feel full and resulting in them eating less with common side effects of the weight loss jab including nausea, constipation, stomach discomfort and diarrhoea.

In a new interview with E! News, Kelly described the weight loss jab her mum used as 'amazing' and opened up a little more about her thoughts on the 'Ozempic craze in Hollywood'.

"I think it’s amazing and I think it’s great for them," she told the outlet. "There are a million ways to lose weight, why not do it through something that’s isn’t as boring as working out?"

The 39-year-old added: "People hate on it because they want to do it. The people who hate on it the most are the people who are secretly doing it or p*ssed 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."

Even though mum Sharon has used the drug before and lost 42 pounds because of it, she stopped after realising how 'dangerous' it could be.

"You can lose so much weight and it’s easy to become addicted to that, which is very dangerous," Sharon, the wife of Ozzy Osbourne, said.

People have since taken to social media to share their reactions to Kelly's remarks with one X user writing: "Rich people have easy access to healthy food options, personal trainers and chefs but they choose to take Ozempic that’s not meant for them and causing shortages for those who truly need them."

A second slammed: "Kelly you just don’t know when to stop running your mouth..."

"She’s so out of touch and ignorant it’s beyond comical at this point it’s just embarrassing," hit out a third while a fourth chimed in: "Shame on her. People like them are causing shortage and rising prices of Ozemic which is helping so many diabetics patients.

"My bf who use to get this though NHS in UK now had to get it through private sources paying £1500 for few pens. People can’t afford it now."

And, a final Twitter user echoed: "I have never heard anyone as inherently selfish as this woman."
