Seal Accuses Oprah Winfrey of Enabling Harvey Weinstein: You Are ‘Part of the Problem’
Singer ‘Seal’ called out Winfrey for her relationship with film producer Harvey Weinstein, who’s been accused of harassing and abusing dozens of women over a decades-long career in Hollywood.
Winfrey made two films with Weinstein’s involvement, including 2013’s Lee Daniels’s The Butler and 2007’s The Great Debaters, and can be seen in online photos embracing the fallen mogul.
“Oh I forgot, that’s right… 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,” Seal wrote on his Instagram account. “My bad.”
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’d like to think that all of these Hollywood actresses really didn’t know what Perv Harvey was up to, but that just seems unlikely When millions are at stake you’ll do anything even make movies with a known predator. So it seems. The ugly truth is how many of us would have let his behavior slide if we had been making millions? I think I probably would have as long as I had never been his victim. What do you think?
