A word of advice for any media outlet: If you try and negatively spin a photo of Ozzy Osbourne, expect a response from a family member.

U.K.’s Daily Mail recently shared a “story” with the following headline: “EXCLUSIVE: Ozzy Osbourne looks nearly unrecognizable with his grey hair as he is pictured out for the first time in months amid battle with Parkinson’s disease” The “story” includes photos of Ozzy with lengthy grey roots, instead of his usual dark hair.

That garbage, practically a paragraph headline aside, this story understandably did not sit well with son, Jack, who took to social media to share an appropriate rebuttal.

Jack wrote, “Dear Bulls— tabloid Journalists, In case you haven’t noticed, it is not really recommended for people with Parkinson’s to go get their hair dyed during a f—ing global pandemic. Just because my father’s hair isn’t his normal color at the moment doesn’t mean s—. He’s 71 and recovering from severe spine surgery, moreover he’s on vacation.”

He continued, “It’s amazing that he can have a 50-year career, selling millions of albums and all that you a–holes wanna talk about his hair roots. Have some respect and decency… oh wait I forgot your kind lost that long ago. It’s time you were held just as accountable for your actions as the rest of us. Shame on you all.”

The statement was also prefaced with, “What a wonderful world of low lifes we live in.” Truth be told, Jack kind of held back.
