Billionare celebrity TV host and actor Oprah Winfrey made headlines on Sunday when she gave an amazing speach about how and why she wanted her daughter to grow up to be president. Since then she has been praised by millions of people around the world and and called on by some to run for president, especially by many white liberal women who look at her as a icon of style, power, and grace. Despite causing the hastag #Oprahforpresident to trend on social media, not everyone, including some of her biggest fans and supporters think it is a good idea.
In fact a backlash of black celebrities have asked people, particularly white women to stop calling for her to run for president. While these supporters think she is well deserving of the acclaim that she is given, and many of them aplaud the idea of a strong black woman as president, most of them agree that she is not qualified and she should not be forced to run. On Wednesday, Seal went a step farther explaining why he thinks that Oprah is part of the problem.
In his rant, which he posted on his Instagram account, Seal posted several photos of Oprah Winfrey cozying up to Harvey Wienstien with the caption, “When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution.” He went on to call her a hypocrite and accuse her of knowing about Wienstein’s victims, but choosing to do nothing in order to further her career.
