Seal has lashed out at Oprah Winfrey following her inspirational Golden Globes speech, claiming she knew about the rumors surrounding Harvey Weinstein but did nothing.
The talk show queen’s widely-applauded speech on Sunday night focused on the plight of sexually abused women and the ‘MeToo’ movement.
But the the ‘Kiss From A Rose’ singer accused the media maven of being an example of ‘sanctimonious Hollywood’.
He took to Instagram Wednesday, sharing a shot of Oprah with the disgraced producer at two events with a meme that read: ‘When you have been part of the problem for decades… but suddenly they all think you are the solution,’ reports the Daily Mail.
The 54-year-old singer took it one step further, captioning the meme that Oprah knew about the various sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein, writing ‘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.’
For an added point he hash-tagged the post with ‘#SanctimoniousHollywood.’
It is unclear if Seal could say with certainty that Oprah was aware of the varied claims against Weinstein that erupted into the public discourse in 2017 following bombshell reports that sent the producer fleeing Hollywood for a sex rehab in Arizona.
Oprah’s speech at the Globes speech was likened to a campaign speech, which in turn sparked new reports that the former talk show queen is eyeing a potential presidential run in 2020.
Seal, who was previously married to model Heidi Klum, had been on Oprah’s talk show. He was surprised by the then host who reunited him with a long lost sister in 2007.
The singer caught a good deal of backlash for his post, with many snowflakes in full meltdown over speaking the harsh truth about the racist, misogynistic, Oprah Winfrey.
