According to Ozzy Osbourne, The Mail Online posted an article stating “Ozzy Osbourne says he felt ‘excited’ after the 9/11 terrorist attacks as it was ‘my kind of craziness'” that it fabricated from quotes pulled from other interviews. See his official statement below:
OZZY OSBOURNE STATEMENT RE ‘THE MAIL ONLINE’ 9-11 NEWS STORY:
“Firstly, I never spoke to ‘The Mail Online.’ Several quotes were pulled from another interview I did for The Shortlist that was posted earlier in the day and were taken out of context to create ‘The Mail Online’ story [about 9-11]. I apologize to anyone who may see these quotes and believe this is actually how I feel. Please know that I would never want to offend or hurt anyone–that was never or would ever be my intention. You would think that at my age I would finally realize that any conversation with a journalist can be twisted, reprinted and made into another story. It’s another life lesson learned.
My representatives have asked ‘The Mail Online’ to pull the piece, but of course, they’ve refused and now it has been subsequently picked up worldwide because of the sensational slant ‘The Mail Online’ put on the story.
Love and peace to everyone. May your God go with you.”
