Oprah Winfrey has been widely praised for her Golden Globes speech, but singer Seal is not impressed.
Singer Seal is refusing to believe that Oprah Winfrey had no idea disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was an alleged serial predator.
Media mogul Winfrey has become a champion of equality and women’s rights in recent years, and appeared more than a little presidential when she delivered her rousing Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday (Monday NZ Time).
But Kiss From a Rose singer Seal isn’t buying the idea that Winfey was completely unaware of the disgraced movie boss’ alleged sexual misconduct – as detailed in New York Times and New Yorker exposes last year.
Seal has taken to Instagram to question Winfrey’s friendship with Weinstein, writing: “Oh I forgot, that’s right… you’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed (sic) actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad.”
