Seal SLAMS Oprah For Weinstein Sexual Assault Knowledge!
Oprah Winfrey is one of the most beloved figures in Hollywood, and her emotional and now infamous speech at this Sunday's Golden Globes not only further secured her place as Hollywood royalty, but had people seriously eyeing her as a viable presidential candidate. I mean, compared to Trump my houseplant is a viable candidate, but still, heads were turning, and Oprah has spent this week on top of the dang world. That is, until now!
Fifty-four-year-old Brit singer Seal took to Instagram to throw about a forest's worth of shade towards the sixty-three-year-old media mogul. Winfrey unwaveringly supported the Time's Up and #MeToo movements at the Globes, which aimed to eradicate sexual assault and inequality across not only showbiz, but all industries. Disgraced mega-producer Harvey Weinstein's shocking behavior against women was one of the impetuses behind this industry sea change, which makes it all the more unbelievable that Seal insinuates in his new statement that Winfrey had, if not hard evidence, enough information to make an informed decision as to Weinstein's abuse of power. Seal writes:
Oh I forgot, that's right.....you'd heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad.#SanctimoniousHollywood
Girl really did go there! Oprah isn't the first star to be accused of turning a blind eye towards Weinstein's horrific behavior, but considering her recent speech, she certainly is one of the most surprising. Do you think Oprah knew, or is Seal just sick of hosting Sirius XM Christmas specials and ready to be back in the limelight? I'd love to know your thoughts on this one!
