Seal calls out Oprah Winfrey, says she is “part of the problem”




We all remember Oprah Winfrey’s speech when she received the Cecil B. DeMille awards at the Golden Globes that made social media users giddy with excitement, excerpts from the speech even trended for days after the event and some people went ahead to start the hashtag #OprahForPresident.

Well, it seems like not everyone is having it, as British singer and songwriter, Seal on his Instagram aired his thoughts about Oprah.
He posted a photo of Oprah and Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual assault by several women in Hollywood, at the 19th annual Critics Choice Movie Awards in January 2014 alongside another of Oprah, Harvey and another lady with the meme captioned “When you have been part of the problem for decades… but suddenly they all think you are the solution”.

He posted the photo with the quote:

“Oh I forgot, that’s right…’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. #SanctimoniousHollywood”

Seal seems to have reason to believe Oprah does not deserve all the accolades she’s getting, hinting that the media mogul might have had an inkling about Harvey’s indiscretions. He however, did not post any proof of his allegations.

    O Seal should go and sit down joor!! did he also not know what was going on in Hollywood? why didn’t he sound the alarm, mscheeeeeeewwwww. Oprah that has been a victim of rape herself and has spoken out boldly about her experience countless times to encourage other women and used her talk show to give a voice to countless abused women. Hediot Seal!

    What I know is that Oprah can’t be president even if she decides to run. They should just return Trump if it’s Oprah he will be contesting against.

    How does taking picture with someone mean you stamp what they do? Everyone reaching for Diezani’s head would have been more than glad to take a picture with her during her hay days. Did the recently killed kidnapper not have and took many pictures with top government officials? Does it mean they are aware and approve what he does? Or am I misunderstanding Seal?

    Has Seal spoken out about Harvey (or any abusive man for that matter)? Has he spoken about his own relationship with Harvey being that his own wife is friends with Harvey’s wife? Now he has the guts to come for Oprah who didn’t know Harvey personally, and barely ever interacted with him? Did any woman come to say that she told Oprah what Harvey did, and Oprah looked away? Oprah who was busy building her empire. Seal is a rat.

      Thank you oh! Don’t mind this hypocrite one hit wonder trying to look for 5 mins of fame, his ex wife that worked and is still working for Harvey Weinstein’s Company with her project runway show, has he spoken about her own experience ?? Harvey Weisten was reveled in Hollywood, had so many friends and influence and genuinely a lot of people respected him in the industry hence why nobody in the past would readily believe any accusation of assault. Oprah taking a picture with a reveled Hollywood big name doesn’t mean anything, Oprah herself has been vocal about her experience with abuse as far back as I can remember.

    Oh of course, let’s blame Oprah for Harveys actions.Cos she was present when it happened and she even planned it??? How about Harvey’s other friends and associates? Including your ex-wife Heidi? Should we loop them in as well? i beg make everybody answer im papa name for this matter. You’ve not spoken up against the criminal but we will hear your voice when you want to drag someone else into it.

    Ademola? Didn’t you learn anything from Monique? The binsh hasn’t done any real work in Hollywood since She came for the holy trinity – Oprah, Lee Daniels and Tyler Perry. Continue to yarn yam o

    lol..this is just seal and you banshess are making noise…wait until the Republicans ,talkless of Trumb begins to work on her…and you will know the perfect oprah is not that perfect…..I always laugh when people ( especially black women) claims that oprah is going to win…majority of white women did not vote for hillary clinton…what makes you think they will vote for oprah( a black woman to be the first female president)..even michelle obama is not that stupid… You will see that all this feminism and sisterhood talk will end at that particular junction.

      Lol that’s because you are stupid and don’t realize that Oprah is one of the few people in the world whose success transcends racial lines. White women have been worshipping her for years. They are the majority of her fanbase – the ones who buy her magazines, who watched her shows, who try out every new recipe and self-help idea she pushes out, all white women. The idea of Oprah being president is nothing new. People have been saying it for years. You can sit in your dirty corner with no light and whine.

    Seal is actually brazillian; his boilogical dad is brazillian while mum was nigerian. It’s on wiki.

    Lol, Seal is also in the entertainment scene and most likely frolicked with sexual abusers. Google images of Seal and Kevin Spacey, lol. So is he guilty by association as well?
    We did not hear Seal’s voice reprimanding the abusers, but we can hear his voice when someone wants to do something about it.
    We also heard the ‘rumors’ of your violent temper and abusive tendencies towards Heidi Klum.

    Pele o, we will not be distracted. The Time’s up for rapists, sexual predators/harassers and their apologists like Seal.

    Will you kip kwayet!!!! Empty barrrel. So he had time to google and post pics of Weinstein with Oprah (as if that proves anything) but no time to call out the evil of sexual harassment? Sounds like a sexist, jealous hater to me.

    So what if she did know. Most people don’t get involved in other people’s issues or hop on every rumor bandwagon, regardless of what they do for a living. Condemning Oprah just because she supposedly “knew” is going way too far with this whole MeToo thing. Everybody knows Hollywood is a dirty place. It always has been. Most of the people who work in the entertainment industry just want to be left alone to do their job, without getting embroiled in all the drama. That doesn’t necessarily make them part of the problem–particularly when those who were sexually assaulted didn’t have the guts to stand up for themselves by going to the police.

    Seal is the same f—ing hypocrite he accuses Oprah to be.
    Saying she knew all a long, apparently he also knew all this time.
    Why didn’t he say anything if he is such a hero?
    Everbody in Hollywood knew this, so why just call out Oprah.
    Meanwhile he and his model girlfriend Heidy Klum where big friends with Harvey Weinstein.
    Weinstein was the executive producer of project Runway.
    There are so many pictures of Seal and Heidy Klum with Weinstein, kissing Weinsteins a–.
    Everbody knew that women where seen as mainly sex objects in a world (Hollywood) dominated by powerfull men. For years Seal has been one of those men.
    I know people in that world and everbody knows that al lot of models have slept their way to fame. Including his ex. So for someone like Seal to make a statement like this, is a f—ing joke.
    He and men like him are the real part of the problem.
