Kelly Osbourne’s Ozempic Comments Spark Backlash

Kelly Osbourne thinks the diabetes drug Ozempic is "amazing" to use for weight loss. Ozempic has been gaining popularity among Hollywood's elite, who use it to lose a lot of weight. Ozempic is not approved for weight loss and is used to lower blood sugar levels and regulate insulin, which is crucial for people with Type 2 diabetes. When a celebrity visibly loses a large amount of weight, folks online theorize it is due to the use of Ozempic for the short time frame results. One doctor told People that this trend is "concerning." https://www.instagram.com/p/C28zIOxr16q/?hl=en Celebrities who have discussed using the diabetes drug include Oprah Winfrey, Kelly's mom, Sharon Osbourne, Tracy Morgan, Amy Schumer, Anthony Anderson (he actually needs it for Type 2 diabetes), and Elon Musk. The list keeps growing, and some celebrities have denied using the drug. Some of the harsh side effects of taking Ozempic include diarrhea and vomiting. Due to the increased demand, there are now shortages of Ozempic, making it unavailable for those living with Type 2 diabetes who really need the medication.

News on the red carpet recently for Dolly Parton's Pet Gala, she said, "There are a million ways to lose weight, why not do it through something that isn't as boring as working out?" Osbourne, 39, held nothing back as she added, "The people who hate on it the most are the people who are secretly doing it or pissed 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." https://www.instagram.com/p/C3Y-nBjxj_Y/?hl=en One person commented on Kelly's comments, "She says the dumbest s--- every time she opens her mouth." Another said, "Maybe cause there are actual diabetics who now can’t get the medications they need???" A third slammed her with, "It’s giving 'who’s going to clean your toilets?' part 2… YIKES." Another suggested, "Of course she would say something like that, she’s taking it." One person quoted her: "'Boring like working out'??? Better have side effects in future? Girl, sometimes it’s better not to talk. Working out gives you not only better body - it’s about health & endorphins, feeling good, being active. Very sad interview."
