The spat between NBC and some of the Osbournes is showing no sign of getting over soon. After the network denied it fired Jack Osbourne from "Stars Earn Stripes" due to his multiple sclerosis diagnosis, the 26-year-old television personality claimed it's a lie.

"NBC said they didn't fire me over my diagnosis? Bull-F***ing-S***," so he tweeted while giving a link to an article that includes the network's statement over the matter. Seemingly responding to NBC's explanation that the show requires "strenuous physical activity," he wrote in another post, "I took part in a 16 hr challenge over 30 miles with a 40lbs ruck on my back in Jan. I had MS then. Don't tell me wot physically demanding is."
