Ozzy Osbourne‘s son Jack is criticizing the U.K.’s Daily Mail tabloid after it published photos of his father during a rare public sighting recently.

The photos show the metal legend, 71, with his grey hair tied in a ponytail, as opposed to his usual black locks. The Daily Mail headline characterizes Ozzy as “nearly unrecognizable.”

In a Facebook post, Jack writes, “In case you haven’t noticed, it is not really recommended for people with Parkinson’s to go get their hair dyed during a f***ing global pandemic.”

Earlier this year, Ozzy revealed that he’d been diagnosed with PRKN 2 Parkinson’s. He also underwent surgery in 2019 after suffering a fall in his home, which aggravated injuries he sustained in a 2003 ATV accident.

“Just because my father’s hair isn’t his normal color at the moment doesn’t mean s***,” Jack wrote in his post. “He’s 71 and recovering from severe spine surgery, moreover he’s on vacation.”

“It’s amazing that [Ozzy] can have a 50-year career, selling millions of albums and all that you a**holes wanna talk about his his hair roots,” Jack continued. “Have some respect and decency…oh wait I forgot your kind lost that long ago. It’s time you were held just as accountable for your actions as the rest of us. Shame on you.”
