Yesterday, we wrote about the curiousness of Hollywood’s apparent “hypocrisy”, namely that of the Golden Globes speech by Oprah Winfrey in the wake of the ‘#MeToo’ movement, and her ‘#TimesUp’ statement regarding the sexual abuse victims and the notorious casting couch within the industry. Now, artist Seal has come out and publicly blasted Oprah on social media saying “you’ve been part of the problem for decades”.
The ‘Kiss from a Rose’ singer, who used to be married to former Victoria’s Secret model Heidi Klum, said that Oprah knew about the Harvey Weinstein rumours for decades, which isn’t all that surprising since it’s one of Hollywood’s worst kept secrets.
Yes, following the so-called inspirational speech by Oprah Winfrey at The Golden Globes, this certainly upset quite a lot of people, both in celebrity circles and with the general public as well. Seal called out “sanctimonious Hollywood”, and in the Instagram post, Seal really let fly with this gem:
When Seal of all people is making memes, then you know that everyone is onto something, right? This should now go some way to harm the public perception that Oprah should run for President in 2020, not that she was even confirmed for, or said that she intended to run for President anyway.
Unfortunately for Oprah, the backlash after the Golden Globes speech hasn’t been the only thing cropping up in the last few days, since her home has also been hit by a very tragic mudslide in Santa Barbara, California, to top it all off. Our thoughts are really with Oprah at this time, since that really all her fault.
Anyway, Seal, 54, spared no thought of Oprah for not knowing about Harvey Weinstein with his message: “When you have been part of the problem for decades… but suddenly they all think you are the solution.”
It did seem like Hollywood had pinned their hopes on black gowns (solidarity) and Oprah’s speech to make all the sexual abuse rumours in the industry just magically disappear. Unfortunately for them, it didn’t work. Back to the drawing board, we suppose…
Perhaps Hollywood should have had Ellen DeGeneres make that speech instead, after all, seemingly in interviewing the security guard from the Las Vegas massacre at The Mandalay Bay Hotel, all suspiciousness and questions about that horrible massacre simply vanished from media and broadcasting at once! Or maybe not.
We sort of feel bad for Oprah at this time, but then again, Seal’s commentary of: “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.” probably has some weight to it.
After running in the same celebrity circles as the world renowned talk show host, whilst being married to Heidi Klum, it does seem like he would’ve known a thing or two about the inside information of La-La Land. The same can probably be said for other who are also part of the same celebrity circles; it would undoubtedly provide all manners of juicy inside information.
Seal was last on Oprah’s show in 2007, but there was no love lost if Seal’s Instagram post is anything to go by… It’s pretty much clear that the speech she made could’ve been instructed by Hollywood heavyweights in an attempt to deviate away from sexual abuse scandals in the public perception after getting out of hand in recent months.
That’s the hypocrisy, and Oprah had since written on Facebook, before all this happened, stating that, “I believe a shift is coming”.
Now nobody should hate Oprah, but perhaps she shouldn’t run for President in 2020, since we don’t think she has the “stamina”, the will, or need to run for such a place in office, given the public’s ever growing doubts about her, as well as learning more about the disastrous and very corrupt Democratic party as well. We think Oprah should just continue being Oprah, instead… don’t you?
We like Oprah as she is, so let’s keep it that way. Maybe she shouldn’t virtue signal away from the systemic problem of sexual abuse in Hollywood with a hypocritical speech, which was not meant to be met with such a backlash.
Brainstain, over and out!
