In the aftermath of Osbourne child and mediocre pop-punk singer Kelly Osbourne’s appearance on “The View” yesterday—in which she tried to counter Donald Trump’s anti-Latino racism by asking who would clean his toilets if he were to kick out undocumented immigrants—Colorlines news editor Aura Bogado took to Twitter with the hashtag “#QueridaKellyOsbourne” to address why Osbourne’s comments were at least as destructive and racist as Trump’s own rhetoric:

The hashtag went far and wide on Twitter, and we saw many hilarious and insightful ones from Colorlines readers and followers. Although Osbourne apologized, here’s 10 of the best tweets that we saw and hope she saw as well:

#QueridaKellyOsbourne You realize that you inherently view Latinx ppl as subservient? More than apologize, check yourself.
