Ozzy Osbourne famously bit the head off a bat in 1982
Ozzy Osbourne‘s daughter Kelly Osbourne has claimed that a bat attacked her and defecated on her head.
Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy famously bit the head off a bat at a gig in 1982 when he mistook a creature thrown onto the stage by a fan for a rubber toy.
On Wednesday (February 10), daughter Kelly uploaded a photo to Instagram along with the caption: “#FuckMyLife walked down the street to @harrysfamouspies where a fucking bat attacked me and shit on my head!”.
She later referred to her father’s infamous stunt, adding: “It was a case of mistaken identity @ozzyosbourne however I should not be paying for your crimes Dad! #BatShitCrazy”.

In his memoir I Am Ozzy, the singer explained of the bat incident: “Immediately… something felt wrong. Very wrong. For a start, my mouth was instantly full of this warm, gloopy liquid, with the worst aftertaste you could ever imagine. I could feel it staining my teeth and running down my chin. Then the head in my mouth twitched.”
In 2014, scientists named a new species of bat frog after Ozzy Osbourne. The new breed of frog was discovered in the Amazon, bearing an unusual bat-like call.
“As soon as I heard its call, I knew it was a new species. I had never heard anything like it,” scientist Pedro Peloso told National Geographic. “We kept talking about the ‘bat frog,’ which led to us talking about being fans of Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath.”
