Musician Seal Calls Oprah Winfrey A 'Part Of The Problem'

Sea;l hammered Oprah for turning a blind eye to Harvey Weinstein's antics. What I re-posted was not an attack on Oprah at all, she just happened to be the person photographed with the pig [Weinstein] in the picture.

Oprah Winfrey's January 2018 acceptance speech for the Golden Globes' Cecil B. deMille Award may have inspired calls for the entertainment mogul to run for president in 2020, but it also came with attempts to smear her character, which were usually baseless and nearly always in meme form. Seal's post suggests that Oprah knew about Weinstein's behavior, but never spoke out, a criticism that that other Hollywood heavyweights like Meryl Streep have also faced.

"I've been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's disgusting behaviour and haven't been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation", she wrote back in October.

Of course, by the time Winfrey took the Golden Globes stage to accept the Cecil B.de Mille Award, her words on pervasive sexual assault throughout history, in all industries, had Hollywood on their feet.

"If we make this just about Harvey Weinstein, then we will have lost this [watershed] moment", Winfrey said.

TMZ also reported that Winfrey had reached out to Weinstein with the promise she'd support him. "I know her very well", Trump said at the White House as he met with lawmakers to discuss immigration.

"I'll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun".

Still, Philadelphia (19-19) is very much in contention for a playoff berth, a marked improvement on recent years. That's just a true testament of professionals in this league, able to come in and know their roles.

British actress Kadian Noble said Tuesday she was head-over-heels impressed when she first met Weinstein at an event in London because he was hanging out with model Campbell and had megastar Oprah "swinging off his arm".

Seal did not reveal the sources behind his Instagram accusation.

"I thought, obviously, this man has something unbelievable in store for me", she said during a teary-eyed press conference in Manhattan to discuss the sex trafficking lawsuit she filed a day earlier against Weinstein in Manhattan federal court.

It comes after Fox News slammed the TV host and called her a hypocrite after her rousing speech at this year's Golden Globes in response to victims of sexual assault and harassment speaking up and refusing to stay silent any longer.

"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane took his Twitter on Tuesday and wrote, "Oprah is beyond doubt a magnificent orator".

There have been reports on CNN and elsewhere in recent days that Winfrey has been considering a presidential run.
