Jack Osbourne Fired for Having MS
Ozzy Osbourne’s 26 year old son Jack revealed last weekend that he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in April. Now he has revealed the diagnosis has cost him a job.
MS is an incurable neurological disease that can have some severe symptoms, but with the right medications, it can also be controlled. But producers for the unnamed reality show Jack was hired to be a part of, decided Jack and his disease were “too much of a responsibility”, so they fired him, via email.
Email…really?! I can’t believe they didn’t at least have the decency to tell him to his face. Which is exactly the way Jack’s mother Sharon felt about the situation when she took to Twitter to confirm that Jack had been fired and to voice her disgust about how the producers handled the situation.
Jack is angry that the producers just assumed that he couldn’t handle the job, he said “out of everything that’s happened, that’s what ticked me off the most.” And I don’t blame him one bit, I would be furious.
