Oprah Winfrey has been the talk of the nation in recent days following the rumors about her potential 2020 presidential run. Although Oprah has not confirmed the candidacy herself, suspicions rose after her monumental Golden Globes speech where she emphasized, “A new day is on the horizon.”
Although #Oprah2020 was trending on social media at one point and several democratic names have expressed their support for the entertainment icon, others are not pleased with the idea. One well-known name who publicly spoke out against Oprah was Seal, an award-winning singer and songwriter.
On Instagram, Seal called out Oprah regarding her relationship with infamous producer Harvey Weinstein, who is currently facing dozens of sexual assault allegations by women in the entertainment industry.
Seal shared photos of Oprah and Weinstein that said, “When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution.”
Seal also captioned the photo, “Oh I forgot, that’s right,” he said. “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.”
This isn’t the only time people brought up Oprah’s former relationship with Weinstein. Previously, photos of her and Weinstein were circulating social media, which were shared by well-known names including Steven Crowder and Dinesh D’Souza.
