Seal has come for Oprah Winfrey following her Golden Globes speech about female empowerment, calling the TV mogul “sanctimonious” and branding her a hypocrite for allegedly knowing about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment antics and choosing to stay silent.
Winfrey told the Globes crowd that “a new day is on the horizon” where no one will be a victim of sexual violence. The speech rekindled interest in long-standing speculation that she might run for president in 2020, with big-name celebs throwing their support behind her.
However, Seal took to Instagram Wednesday, January 10th with a picture of Oprah kissing Weinstein’s cheek at an event, with the words: “When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution.”
He then captioned the snap: “Oh I forgot, that’s right…..you’d heard the rumors but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young starry-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad. #SanctimoniousHollywood.”
Winfrey, for her part, condemned Weinstein when his allegations of sexual abuse surfaced. “Oprah has not spoken to Harvey Weinstein directly,” her spokesperson told TMZ several months ago. “Someone from his team reached out to her to see if she would talk to him, and she said she would if it was for an interview. There are no plans for an interview at this time.”
