Rock star Ozzy Osbourne has said he is ‘disgusted’ by the use of his music in a protest by the Westboro Baptist Church. The controversial, outspoken and openly homophobic Church used the 1980 hit Crazy Train by Osbourne during a protest outside the US Supreme Court in Washington.

The Church, which is run by the Phelps family, was featured in a BBC Two documentary in the UK fronted by Louis Theroux. The family have been described as the ‘most hated in the USA’ for their outspoken attacks on homosexuality and other issues.
