Sharon Osbourne has apologized for saying that Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle was hit by "the ugly stick."

Last month, Osbourne, 57, appeared on Sirius XM Radio's The Opie & Anthony Show and was asked about Boyle. She cracked, "You just want to say God bless and here's a Gillette razor."
