Kelly blurted out: “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”
This week, Kelly Osbourne found herself being lambasted for sparking a race storm about Latinos on live TV as she spoke about presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
The Republican dimwit wants to get rid of the Hispanic community in America – as he thinks Mexico is “bringing drugs, crime and rapists” into the US.
Enter Kelly, the outspoken host of The View, the US answer to Loose Women, who asked: “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”
The next day I found myself in a conversation with a man I mistook to be the valet – I asked him if he could kindly get my car.
“I don’t work here, I’m white,” he shamelessly told me. “White people don’t do manual work in LA, don’t you know that? It’s the blacks and the Hispanics. White people sit behind computers.”
Stunned, I went and found the real valet – a very nice and eager to please African-American man.
So I did a bit of a field study. Where I live, hard-grafting cleaners are Latino. The DIY men? Latino. The men who top up your water in restaurants are Latino and the dustmen too.
But receptionists are white and estate agents, the girls behind the tills in Topshop – all of them are white too. The hostesses waiting to seat you for dinner? White. There are obviously exceptions, but in Los Angeles, you most certainly would not see a white person scrubbing a loo.
The sad reality here is that Kelly is right. And the incident at the valet stand seems to prove that.
Thankfully, a poll carried out in the Latino community last week revealed that 75 per cent utterly dislike Trump.
With a bit of luck, they’ll put a cross anywhere but next to that clown’s name at the polling stations.
