Sharon Osbourne Calls U2 'Middle Age Political Groupies' with 'Mediocre' Music

It's safe to say Sharon Osbourne is not happy about the new U2 album being downloaded automatically onto iPhone users' phones.
The notoriously outspoken The Talk host took to her Twitter Monday to air her thoughts on the surprising music move, in which instead of giving users the option to download U2's new album for free, Songs of Innocence was just put into everyone's iTunes libraries as an already "purchased" album.
Sharon, 61, didn't hold back.
The insults than turned a little personal with some colorful language.
Though Sharon is of course not the only person upset at the Apple/U2 stunt.
Apple created a help page Monday with specific instructions on how to remove the album from your iTunes libraries and your purchases list, undoubtedly due to a lot of angry reactions from iPhone users.
But according to U2's manager Guy Oseary, the band expected all of the resulting backlash.
"It’s a gift from Apple. If someone doesn’t like the gift, they should delete it. ... There are people who are going to be thrilled to get a gift. There are people who are not going to care to have this gift. We knew all of that going in. No surprises here," Oseary told Mashable. "We just want to share it with as many people as possible. If you don’t want it and you don’t need it, delete it."
Bono himself wrote on the band's official website, "For the people out there who have no interest in checking us out, look at it this way: The blood, sweat and tears of some Irish guys are in your junk mail."
Though this isn't the first time Sharon has candidly called people out -- check her out in the video below with some choice words for the View hosts!
