  • Steven added that Oprah would bring ‘empathy’ to the White House something which he believes is lacking in current president Donald Trump

"Next, to those of us who support the #MeToo movement, just know this: not one of the women who have been sexually abused, not one of the women who have come forward, has received any real justice whatsoever".

As we reported earlier, he posted an Instagram meme with two images: one showing Winfrey kissing Weinstein on the cheek, and another with the pop star Rita Ora sitting in between Weinstein and Winfrey.

"Let me start by saying that I have an enormous amount of respect for everything that Oprah has achieved and contributed in her life", said Seal. "You'd heard the rumours 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".

Singer Seal is calling out critics for suggesting he attacked Oprah Winfrey over her relationship with Harvey Weinstein, insisting he was speaking out against hypocrisy in Hollywood.

Chaque film de Tarantino est l'occasion pour lui de montrer la cote de popularité et surtout l'influence qu'il possède sur le tout Hollywood.

The first indication that this is a fictional quote is the fact that the meme includes any information about where or when Winfrey purportedly said it. Weinstein's alleged misdeeds and various reactions elicited from celebrities and politicians were extensively covered in the months following the New York Times bombshell report that he had paid off several of his accusers, yet we were unable to find this quote in any credible publication. "She just happened to be the person photographed with the pig (Weinstein) in the picture. No, what I reposted was commentary on the hypocritical and double standard nature and behavior of Hollywood".

The post was interpreted many different ways, so Seal shared his intentions in a Facebook video on Thursday. "Do not retweet, requote anything I have said in order to reinforce your self-hating agenda". You steal from the post office, you go to jail. "This was an observation of the toxic nature of Hollywood, and I believe that a conscious people are a progressive people".

Asked if she had the kind of experience necessary for the job, he retorted, "Does our current president?"
