Sharon Osbourne Calls Madeleine McCann’s Parents ‘Insane’ For Leaving Her Alone

Outspoken Sharon Osbourne is known for being blunt and to the point, but has she taken things too far with her latest comments?

In a recent episode of US chat show The Talk, Sharon criticised Madeleine McCann’s parents for leaving her without supervision.

This is what she said about parents Kate and Gerry McCann: “I will tell you a very quick story. There was a husband and wife on holiday in Portugal.

They left their baby in the room sleeping, sleeping while they went to dinner in the restaurant.

While they were in the resort their baby was taken. And it is like, ‘Oh but we can see everything that is going on’ and it is, like, insane.”

Kate and Gerry McCann

Understandably, the comments have angered Kate and Gerry who are still coming to terms with the disappearance of their daughter in 2007.

A family friend said: “It’s very ­disappointing when someone with such a high profile makes this sort of ­ignorant, ill-informed comment.

She should think about the effect it could have on Madeleine’s brother and sister, as well as the wider family.

Kate and Gerry have never forgiven themselves and this should not have been aired in a random way, as it ­apparently was.

It’s based on ignorance of the true facts. While she’s entitled to her view she should keep it to herself.”

McCanns libel payout

Maddie was taken from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007, days before her fourth birthday and has never been found. Her parents were having dinner at the holiday resort while the child slept alone in her room not far away.
