Dolezal, who has come under fire for pretending to be black for nearly a decade, recently revealed on NBC's Today that she has identified as black since the age of 5 and denied ever using makeup or other means to obtain her dark complexion.

She also told MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry that changing her hair helped her feel more accepted as a black woman. "I always used to pull my hair back because I just didn't feel comfortable," she said. "And then when I got braids, it was like just the smiles and OK, you know?"

Last week, Osbourne posted a side-by-side comparison of a light-skinned, younger Dolezal and her current look with the caption: "This has utterly shocked me!!! It's a #WholeNewLevelOfWrong."
