Following Sharon Osbourne's revelation that she quit America's Got Talent because NBC discriminated against her son Jack, the network released a statement disputing the claims. However, Jack, who publicly revealed that he is suffering from MS, has taken to Twitter in an angry rant to insist that NBC did discriminate against him.
It is thought that Jack was all set to star in a new NBC show, Stars Earn Stripes where participants are put through their paces in challenging tasks. However Sharon claimed that they soon axed him when they found out about his diagnosis.
Annoyed at NBC's dismissal, Jack tweeted: "NBC said they didn't fire me over my diagnosis? Bull-F--k----S--t," which had the link from TMZ reporting on NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt's statement, attached to it.
"I took part in a 16 hour challenge over 30 miles with a 40 pound ruck [sack] on my back in January. I had MS then. Don't tell me [what] physically demanding is", Us Weekly reports him saying.
Claiming that Jack was just one of the celebrities who were in talks to appear on the show, Stars Earn Stripes producer David Hurwitz told the New York Post: "He was somebody we were in talks with."
