Early in the morning, an interview with Kelly Osbourne was released, and on the article she talked (among other things) about Lady Gaga's fans and how she had 'the worst fans of the world' and that they had told her about every bad word they could have thought of. After Gaga found out about that, she decided to speak up, so she issued an open letter to Kelly to explain the situation.

Some fragments of Gaga's letter are:

"Dear Kelly, While I wish you had reached out to me personally  […] we would like to respond. Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers. I encourage them to ignore criticism, stand up to bullies, know their own value and see that we are all the same and no one person is worth more than another […]. I know I’m perceived as a wild child, but in reality I am woman that deeply cares for humanity. I have empathy for you Kelly, but I feel it culturally important to note that you have chosen a less compassionate path..." 
Then Gaga went on to talk about Kelly's current job at E! Fashion Police, she stated:
"Your work on E! with the Fashion Police is rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people's beauty against one another. “Appearance” is the most used reason for bullying in the world. Your show breeds negativity, and over the years has even become comedic in nature. It glorifies you and Joan Rivers pointing in the camera, laughing, and making jokes about artists and celebrities as if we are zoo animals.
They look up to you because you are famous, and if you treat others that way on TV, many adolescents at home on twitter assume your actions are acceptable: well if she does it, why can’t I? "
And Gaga has quite an argument on her hands. After all, she can't control her fans, but if Kelly does that to some people... Then how can she expect them not to do the same to her?
