Oprah grabbed headlines this week after her rousing Golden Globes speech, which spurred talks about whether she’ll run for president in 2020.
But the singer Seal is firing back, accusing the TV billionaire of being part of the problem, expressing his thoughts in an explosive Instagram post.
“When you have been part of the problem for decades… but suddenly they all think you are the solution,” a meme on the post read.
“You’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad,” the post continued, showing Winfrey with Harvey Weinstein.
He included the hashtag “#SanctimoniousHollywood” on the post.
On Tuesday, “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane also spoke out against Winfrey, warning that celebrity power does not alone qualify a candidate to be in the White House.
“Oprah is beyond doubt a magnificent orator,” MacFarlane wrote. “But the idea of a reality show star running against a talk show host is troublingly dystopian. We don’t want to create a world where dedicated public service careers become undesirable and impractical in the face of raw celebrity.”
