Chrissy Teigen slams Seal over meme targeting Oprah Winfrey

Oprah mocked for close ties with Weinstein following potential 2020 bid

Seal has criticized Oprah Winfrey for her relationship with disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein just days after her widely praised speech at the Golden Globes on sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

"And Stacey Dash, keep my name out of your mouth", he continues. The musician posted a meme in which Oprah can be seen kissing Harvey Weinstein on the cheek. Do not retweet, re-quote anything I have said in order to reinforce your self-hating agenda.

"Oh I forgot, that's right....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. You live in a sunken place".

Chrissy Teigen jumped to Oprah Winfrey's defense when Seal denounced the media mogul in a meme shared over Instagram. "My bad", Seal said in the caption of the Wednesday post.

Seal has followed up to his stinging attack on Oprah.

Yahoo News' headline was "Seal Takes Shot at Oprah Over Harvey Weinstein Connection" while Variety went with "Seal Accuses Oprah of Knowing About Harvey Weinstein's Sexual Misconduct".

At the Golden Globes, where she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award, Winfrey proclaimed, "I want all the girls watching to know a new day is on the horizon".

However, the TV talk show host maybe accused of using the "Me Too" movement for her own political gains and might face questions over her friendship with Hollywood's now infamous sexual predator.

According to her best friend, Oprah Winfrey is not actively considering running for president, but if that changes, director Steven Spielberg is ready with an endorsement.

TMZ also cited undisclosed sources in reporting that Winfrey reached out to Weinstein with promises that she'd support him.

"What I re-posted was not an attack on Oprah at all", he adds.

In the video, Seal explained that what he posted was intended as "commentary on the hypocritical and double standard nature and behavior of Hollywood".

"Thanks to the courageous voices we've heard this week, many more will now be emboldened to come forward EVERY time this happens", Oprah concluded. "How about hashtag 'we all knew.' How about hashtag 'tell the truth.' How about hashtag 'accountability'".
