@MissKellyO I like that. And good for you tweeting regardless of the inevitable backlash!

How dare she?!

This morning, Kelly Osbourne tweeted a tribute to the late Margaret Thatcher, expressing sadness at the Iron Lady’s passing. If she were lamenting the death of Hugo Chavez, lefties would likely be cheering. As it happens, Osbourne is finding out the hard way what happens when a celebrity has kind words for a conservative warrior:

@MissKellyO sad? she was a scumbag who will rot in hell. you never lived in a town where no ones dad had a job for a decade apparently.

@MissKellyO you stupid cow ,she was a homophobic cunt and you adore her just cos she was an old lady ?

— sheldon (@mambosnake) April 8, 2013

Tolerance at its best.

Osbourne fought back:

@lfcmad1306 that will always happen in politics but anyone that 'celebrates' the death of another negatively needs there head sorting out!

— Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) April 8, 2013

@leaanddan If she was a man you would not be saying that!

— Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) April 8, 2013

@sharpeye76 i did live there and still do half the year Im not stupid to what went on i just share a different opinion!

— Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) April 8, 2013

@franmurph1 you are very right i did not see the north first hand! however just like you are entitled to your opinion so am mine & thats ok

— Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) April 8, 2013

@victoriajones88 Anyone is a position of power will always cause pain no matter what! Its a dirt job but someones got to do it!

— Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) April 8, 2013

Others agreed that Thatcher’s memory deserves to be honored:

@MissKellyO she was a woman of strength no matter if you agreed with her or not.:-).

— lD KIDD (@idkidd6) April 8, 2013

@MissKellyO nice to see a positive quote rather than all this hate we are seeing – at the end of the day she was a daughter/wife/mother

— Beckaweck (@beckaweck) April 8, 2013

@MissKellyO she may have made some harsh decisions but she turned this country around when we needed it. X

— Emily Mills (@NuttyDevil7) April 8, 2013
