Jack Osbourne has taken aim at the TV producers who axed him from a reality show after learning he had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Osbourne went public with his health battle at the weekend and appeared on his mother Sharon's The Talk show in America on Wednesday, when he revealed he had been fired from an unnamed show over fears about his condition.
Osbourne explained he wasn't even told of the decision to replace him - his manager/mum found out via a cowardly email.
He said, "I had just booked a job right when I got diagnosed and unfortunately the company that hire me didn't think I could actually perform the job.
"Out of everything, that's what ticked me off the most, because it's like, 'Don't tell me what I can and cannot do!'"
His mum explained she received word of her son's firing through a letter, in which producers attempted to explain that they thought Jack was "too much of a responsibility". She sarcastically added, "It was very nicely handled."
And on Thursday, Osbourne took to Twitter.com to comment further, writing, "Yes @MrJacko was fired. They said he was a liability & were so personable, sent an email to let us know."
