Famed recording artist Seal (you know… kiss from a rose) straight up, called out Oprah Winfrey’s pandering to sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, saying that her silence made her “part of the problem”!
He took to his Instagram account to point the finger where he posted an old press photo (which is now a meme) showing Oprah kissing Weinstein as well as seemingly introducing him to a young lady (she may be famous, but I don’t know who she is).
And just look at the poor girl… her face seems to have 1000 words on it; she knows about him. Either by reputation or, God forbid, experience, she’s a little frightened.
“When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution,” Seal wrote. He continued, sarcastically:
“Oh I forgot, that’s right…..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.”
Seal is just the latest in a string of public commentators suggesting that, like Meryl Streep, who was also friends with Weinstein for decades and collaborated regularly with the Miramax head, Oprah Winfrey was adept enough at moving through Hollywood circles that rumors about Harvey’s private life would certainly have reached her ears.
Winfrey and Weinstein were partners in production, and often met up at the same parties and political fundraisers. One of Weinstein’s alleged victims, a British model, suggested to media that Harvey even used his relationship with Oprah to prove to some of his victims that he wielded extensive power in the entertainment industry, saying she was impressed with Weinstein’s ability to get Oprah to “hang off” his arm.
