Sharon Osbourne has officially joined her daughter's feud with Lady Gaga ... firing off a letter to the pop star calling her a hypocritical JERK who encourages her fans to harass her daughter Kelly.

Osbourne is responding to a letter Gaga wrote to Kelly Osbourne and posted on her official website ... in which LG blasted Kelly as a "bully" who unfairly picks on celebrities on her TV show "Fashion Police."

Gaga said she's disgusted that Kelly and Joan Rivers constantly make "jokes about artists and celebrities as if we are zoo animals."

Sharon says Gaga's fans have been waging a campaign of online terror against the Osbournes thanks to Gaga's criticism of the show. Sharon claims some of the singer's fans have even made death threats to Kelly.

Now, in her letter to Gaga ... obtained by TMZ ... Sharon demands Gaga instruct her fans to stop the harassment ASAP. 

Osbourne writes, "A word from you would stop all this hideous, negative and vile threats from your 'little monsters.'"

Sharon also writes, "You say [Kelly's] work on E! with the Fashion Police is 'rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.' Welcome to the real world."

She continues, "By your actions to Kelly right now, you have shown me that you are nothing more than a publicity seeking hypocrite and an attention seeker."

"You know it would have been much more dignified of you to do this privately. I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter.  Are you so desperate that you needed to make this public?"

There's more ... check out Sharon's entire letter after the jump ...


SHARON'S LETTER TO LADY GAGA:


Ms. Gaga

I am responding to your open letter to my daughter Kelly and I m perplexed as to why you would go public with an open letter.  Regarding this current situation; Kelly didn’t contact you, I was the one that contacted your manager today and the email is attached below for your reference. 

I reached out to him as Kelly’s  manager and mother to ask him if you could address your “little monster” fans and stop them from writing libelous, slanderous and vile comments about my family including death threats to Kelly.   Your open letter is hypocritical and full of contradictions.   And as your mother Cynthia supports you, I support my daughter Kelly.  I must say your opinions on what is politically correct and acceptable totally differ from mine, but that is what makes the world so
interesting… we are all different.  How sweet that you have empathy for my daughter as you feel that she has taken a less passionate path in life.  You say her work on E! with the Fashion Police is “rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.” 

Welcome to the real world.

Example, when I saw you wear a dress made out of raw meat, I was sickened.  When I see you wearing fur and you use it as a fashion statement, that defenseless animals have been killed so you can get your picture in the press is abhorrent to me. Shouldn’t you be teaching your “little monster” fans to respect animals and life? I don’t feel I have to justify Kelly’s choices in life to you. 

By your actions to Kelly right now, you have shown me that you are nothing more than a publicly seeking hypocrite and an attention seeker. You know it would have been much more dignified of you to do this privately. I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter.  Are you so desperate that you needed
to make this public?

You state “Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers.” Well this obviously is not translating well to your fans as a large portion of them, not only have been vile to Kelly but also other celebrities such as Madonna, Adele and Rihanna. “You say a kinder, braver world” I don’t know what world you live in but supporting disgraceful fan comments doesn’t fall under the words “kinder and braver” it comes under the heading of bullsh*t.

In closing, stop wearing fur, stop looking for publicity and stop using your fans to belittle not just Kelly but an endless stream of celebrities.  A word from you would stop all this hideous, negative and vile threats from your “little monsters.” Let me know if you want to continue this debate. I’m an open playing field for you my darling.


Sincerely,
Sharon Osbourne

Gaga is correct that Fashion Police is nothing more than bullies with spiked tongues. They are mean, crude and horrible. BTW, have you seen what they wear. They should turn around and look at themselves. Also, Kelly has said some pretty horrible things herself about other celebrities.

Can dish it out, but cannot take it.

Fashion Police is pure fun, nothing more. I respect Joans comedic skills & tastes in fashion. But Kelly Osbourne has poor taste, so she has no qualification to be critiquing anyone. Why doesnt she critique her poorly dressed mother, who lacks class & umph?? I dont blame Gaga for lashing out...but Sharans lengthy response is childish, out of place, and silly.

I am Team Osbourne. Fashion opinion of celebs been around forever and done by everyone in every forum. GaGa wears outrageous outfits as part of her act and brand, so she should expect & blow off fashion critique from anybody. GaGa needs to call off her fans and make peace. Too many whack jobs out there who may actually try and hurt someone. Kelly is doing no more than her job & frankly as weird as GaGa's fashion is, could be a whole lot meaner.

PLEASE. The Fashion World that Gaga claims to love so much has ALWAYS been this way, in fact, has been far more cruel. Last Gaga the good girl who wears innocent animals who were tortured from head 2 toe crying about compassion. Hypocrite.

It is Kelly and Joan's job to critique fashion, but they make personal attacks as well. I just happened to catch that train wreck of a show and they SLAMMED Christina Aguilera's body- not so much her clothes. And wasn't Christina in a feud with Kelly before, too? I say do your worthless job getting paid big bucks to judge people's clothes and handle your personal fights in PRIVATE.

I'm not quite the Gaga fan except I like some of her music to work out to, but excuuuuuse me Mrs Ozzy Ozbourne. I'll give her credit for her business savvy but other that she's an obnoxious woman riding on her husband's fame. Kelly is nothing but a former chub/druggie/horribly inked girl who lost weight and became a stylist's darling. Period. At least Gaga made her own way and rides no one's wake. Now please go away.

I love Sharon Osborne, absolutely love her, but if my memory serve me right, didn't her and Kelly or Kelly and Jack get into a fight with one of the neighbors on The Osbornes and throw raw steaks at them over the gate?

Look IM no Gaga fan but what she said about Kelly holds true. Seems like the Osbornes feel there the only ones to bully & get away with it.or try to. Kelly on that show is rediculous. Then again maybe there getting her ready to take Rivers spot. That is Sharon should really attack. Whatever happened to MOMS letting there kids fight there battles. Talk about attention whores Osbornes been having a go at it all year. Di they pay all there taxes yet. lol
