Kelly Osbourne: My fans abuse me

Kelly Osbourne is completely against "Internet bullying."

The E!'s Fashion Police host has received death threats from viewers via Twitter and other social media sites for remarks made by her and co-host Joan Collins on the programme.

Panelists on E!'s Fashion Police comically evaluate celebrity fashion and Kelly believes that jokes made on the show are fair play.

On a previous episode Joan commented on one of Beyoncé Knowles' ensembles, eliciting a hateful reaction from one angry fan.

Kelly is disgusted by the irate audience member's limited sense of humour.

"[When that fan wished me dead after Joan commented on Beyoncé's outfit] I was like, 'Are you serious?' " Kelly told Life & Style magazine. "I know if Beyoncé ever saw that, she would never want a fan like that. Internet bullying is a serious thing."

Kelly is unhappy with the fact that she gets all the flack from every controversial comment made on the show. The star believes that she is specifically targeted for attack.

"I get abuse from viewers," Kelly said. "No one says anything mean to Joan Rivers - she's a 70-year-old woman and they're not going to do that. I get the blame!"

Kelly became a judge on the show in August 2010.

The broadcast airs on E! Network in America weekly.
