Seal blasts Oprah over claims she didn't know about Harvey Weinstein allegations

Seal has lashed out at Oprah Winfrey following her inspirational speech, claiming she knew about the rumors surrounding Harvey Weinstein but did nothing. After accepting the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award, Oprah addressed big issues affecting women in several industries, especially sexual harassment in the entertainment business.

The "Kiss from a Rose" singer posted two memes on his account: One that showed Winfrey kissing Weinstein on the cheek and in the other, the megastar appears to be introducing a young woman to Weinstein.

"The singer included a meme of Winfrey and Weinstein that accused her of being "part of the problem for decades", and captioned the post with the hashtag, "#SanctimoniousHollywood".

"I've been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's ugly behavior and haven't been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation", she wrote, before sharing a quote from filmmaker James Schamus, according to the Daily Mail. If Oprah is serious, wanted to all but guarantee being the Democratic nominee and bring about change immediately, she'd announce her candidacy this spring.

Specifically, Oprah Winfrey's Golden Globes speech was so refreshingly sensible compared to the current rambling pouring out of the White House, that the media mogul's words sounded like the most presidential thing people had heard in months.

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) Shares Bought by Foster & Motley Inc
WALTON ALICE L also sold $131.11M worth of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE: WMT ) on Friday, November 17 with "Underperform" rating. Adell Harriman Carpenter has invested 0.05% in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. ( NYSE WMT ) traded up $0.85 on Friday, hitting $100.87.

Continuing his attack on the hypocrisy in Hollywood, Seal said, "To those of us who support the Me Too movement, just know this: not one of the women who have been sexually abused, not one of the women who have come forward has received any real justice whatsoever".

The post had quickly gone viral, with people saying his comments were directed at Oprah.

At least, Oprah, who was just rising to national fame with her Chicago-based talk show when Postman's book came out, made a decision to use her powers for literary good.

"Hey Oprah. Funny I've never heard you mention my name".

Cillizza spoke with Brian Stelter about the political undertones of Winfrey's speech and the possibility of a Winfrey-Trump 2020 presidential showdown for this week's Reliable Sources podcast. The notion of another celebrity in the White House wasn't lost on Bloomberg TV's David Rubenstein who reminded Winfrey last March that "it's clear you don't need government experience to be elected president of the United States" when he posed the idea before a live studio audience. "There are no plans for an interview at this time". "My bad", he snapped, adding a meme featuring Oprah and Harvey at events together.
