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…’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.”

  1. The ONLY person who is responsible is Weinstein. I do NOT hold no one else accountable for his actions. That is stupid to do so. I do not care if Oprah took a million pictures with him. He did wrong, not her unless you can PROVE to me she KNEW FOR A FACT That he did these things and she knew. Sorry but rumors do not court.

    And Seal you are an even bigger problem a self loathing black man lusting after WHITE women, theses white chicks you have to pay look into your face that looks like a piece of Hersey’s with stiches. I figured it wouldn’t be too long before some white washed black fool had something negative to say. How in the hell does he know that Oprah knew Weinstein was a pervert. A lot of people took photos with him and had no idea.

    Lol! GOTS ta be more careful! I’m just sitting here cringing at the pic, because personally, I don’t go around handing out “casual cheek smooches”, (germaphobe) but then again, I’m not one of those Hollywood elite-types either. 😄 Seal may very-well have a point that OW likely knew of the rumors years ago, and yet said nothing, but the bigger issue in my opinion is why so many people are actually looking to her to be the so-called “solution”? She gave a fabulous speech, she’s always been a very talented orator, so she typically does deliver fab speeches, but does a fabulous speech in and of itself make someone Presidential material? Sure, people are wanting someone better than the filthy, disgusting Liar-in-Chief that is 45, and they are saying that she would be a far better choice than he, but is ‘Better Than Trump’ the main going standard for electing a POTUS nowadays? I mean frankly speaking, any mangy dog would probably be a better choice than Trump, (and NO, I’m certainly not comparing this intelligent, talented, well-read sista to a mangy dog, Lol) but shouldn’t we be setting our standards higher than simply ‘Better than…’? OW is a great humanitarian whose finger is on the pulse of many key issues in America, but in all honesty, I can think of several other Black women that I’d cast my vote for ahead of Ms. Winfrey. Then again, who knows what 2020 will actually bring? 🤷🏽‍♀️

    One another note, and don’t take this to mean I don’t like Oprah, but I got a problem with people who don’t tell the truth or think once the white man says it’s a problem, then black people need to get on board “the movement”. Now all the time blacks have been dealing and going through, only black people gave a damn, now we’re supposed to hop on the #metoo movement train and ride it out with the white folks, go on ahead and miss me wit’ it. I realize that a black woman started this movement, but it didn’t catch fire until that white woman said she was a victim, again, it ain’t valid until they validate it. AND these women who jumped on this victim train aren’t brave, they are LATE, should have spoken up then.

    These confidential settlements are the problem. Instead of these women getting justice or keeping other women from being victims, they took the money and kept their stupid mouths shut, while these predators continued to victimize others. And maybe you’re saying to yourself, “I would have done the same thing, took the money”, until you became a victim of another sexual predator and then wonder why no one said anything that could have saved you.

    • I agree. And now theywant pity. Now they are in the boat with people who also get settlements but lied. Settlements do NOT stop criminal process and justice if you are really a victim. Remember a settlement is an MUTUAL agreement. So these people is not all innocent victims most cases.

  6. Lie down with dogs get up with flees. Trust no one. This is just like those people in Alabama 35 plus years ago when rumors were out about ole perv Roy Moore. People whispered about him “liking” the young girls and he shouldn’t be left alone and in the end, these were more than just rumors they are facts. He was a dirty 30 y.o. D.A. molesting children, he’s a pedophile and people knew and continued the whispers.
    This is not to say Oprah did anything wrong, but it’s also just like people have those dirty old men in their families and tell others to keep their girls away from him, or don’t leave him alone with your daughters.

    • I agree. And Seal better be careful. Right now everyone is mixing apples with oranges. For all we know, someone may come forward and accuse Seal of something regardless if it is true or not. Look at the actor who just won “best actor” at the Golden Globe.

  7. Seal, shut up. You and your wife dealt with Weinstein. So what if Oprah had pictures with him or business with him. Oprah is NOT responsible for Weinstein actions and just because we hear “rumors’ about someone does not mean to run either until it is PROVEN to be true. what if it turned out not to be true and people “rush to judge”, then people would still trash. Now that Oprah knows, she is not dealing with him just like you and your wife dealt with him. If we all are judge on people who misbehaved and we find out later, we all would be viewed as awful. Oprah did not hang with Weinstein like a best friend. He was an associate just like we all know associates.
