Sharon Osbourne has responded to an open letter from Lady Gaga, which criticises her daughter Kelly Osbourne.

Kelly Osbourne spoke out yesterday about Lady Gaga's fans, 'little monsters', calling her fat - despite the singer's call for body acceptance. Gaga replied in an open letter, in which she said that Kelly herself had chosen a 'less compassionate path'.

Gaga wrote, "To see you blossoming into a beautiful slender woman who makes fun of others for a living is astounding. Why not help others? Why not defend others who are bullied for their image and share your story?"

Sharon responded by posting a letter on her Facebook to Lady Gaga, in order to defend her daughter.

The reality TV star wrote, "When I see you wearing fur, and using it as a fashion statement, the fact 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?"

She continued, "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?"

Kelly Osbourne claimed that Gaga's fans say she should kill herself due to her weight

"You say 'a kinder, braver world'," Sharon added. "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 bulls**t."

She finished by saying, "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."

And Kelly added her final (we hope) thoughts over Twitter, saying, "I hope you guys realize that I don't care about any of this bullshit! I know who I am I don't need anyone to tell me!... love to all xoxo"
