Picking up steam on Twitter is the hashtag #OprahKnew accompanied by photos of an obviously chummy Winfrey nuzzling with and even kissing Weinstein:
SEAL SLAMS OPRAH: ‘YOU’VE BEEN PART OF THE PROBLEM FOR DECADES FOR IGNORING WEINSTEIN RUMORS…NOW YOU THINK YOU’RE THE SOLUTION’
- Seal to Oprah: ‘When you have been part of the problem for decades… but suddenly they all think you are the solution.’
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.’
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.’

#OprahKnew: Oprah Presidential Talk Renews Questions About Swiss Race Hoax, Her Buddy Harvey Weinstein
- Oprah Winfrey accused a Swiss shopgirl of racism, who openly declared Winfrey a liar
- Winfrey backed off with a non-apology apology about being “sorry” that the incident “got blown up.”
- British actress Kadian Noble accused Harvey Weinstein of using his friend Oprah Winfrey and model Naomi Campbell to seduced her
- It was an ‘open secret’ in Hollywood that Oprah’s friend Harvey Weinstein was sexually assaulting and raping young women, yet Oprah was silent.
Back in late November, Oprah’s name was dragged into the Weinstein scandal when British actress Kadian Noble, who has filed an 11 page complaint against the former mogul, alleged, among other terrible things, that Weinstein got to her through Winfrey and model Naomi Campbell.
“An aspiring actress says Harvey Weinstein used Oprah Winfrey and Naomi Campbell to dupe her into thinking he would help her with her career — only to use her for sex,” Page Six reported.
OPRAH PLAYED A FAKE RACE CARD
Winfrey also found herself in hot water in 2013 when, without any proof, she appeared to manufacture a racial controversy in order to promote her latest movie, Lee Daniels’s The Butler. Appearing on Entertainment Tonight, Winfrey accused a Swiss shopgirl of racism.
“I say to the woman, ‘Excuse me, may I see that [$38,000 purse] right above your head?’ And she says to me, ‘No, it’s too expensive.’ … She refused to get it,” Winfrey dramatically explained.
But Winfrey refused to back up her story by identifying the store or the “racist” clerk. Eventually, though, the store and the shopgirl were located, and the young woman accused of racism by the most powerful woman in the world, openly declared Winfrey a liar:
I didn’t hurt anyone. I don’t know why someone as great as her must cannibalize me on TV. … If it had all taken place as she claimed, why has she not complained the next day at the wedding of Tina Turner with Trudie Goetz, my boss? She was there also at the Turner wedding as a guest. I don’t understand it. … I spoke to Oprah Winfrey in English. My English is OK but not excellent, unfortunately. … I didn’t know who she was when she came into the store. That wouldn’t have made any difference if I had.
And what was Winfrey’s bizarre response to this hideous “racist” adding insult to injury by declaring her a liar? Outrage? Fury? Nope. Winfrey backed off with a non-apology apology about being “sorry” that the incident “got blown up.”
Flashback! British actress Kadian Noble accused Harvey Weinstein and Oprah of persuading her to go to Weinstein hotel bedroom.
British actress Kadian Noble said Tuesday she was head-over-heels impressed when she first met Weinstein at an event in London because he was hanging out with model Campbell and had megastar Oprah “swinging off his arm.”
“I thought, obviously, this man has something amazing in store for me,” she said during a teary-eyed press conference in Manhattan to discuss the sex trafficking lawsuit she filed a day earlier against Weinstein in Manhattan federal court.
Instead, Weinstein used promises of career advancement to lure the actress to his hotel room in Cannes, France, where he forced himself on her, she said.
“I felt completely played,” she said.
Noble is the latest in a long line of actresses and models who claim Weinstein either forced himself on them or coerced them into sex with promises of career advancement.

- “Whoever had that story and didn’t write it should be held responsible”
Clooney, who got a big break in Hollywood in the Weinstein-produced 1996 film From Dusk Til Dawn, said that most of the rumors of Weinstein’s behavior he had heard had come from the producer himself.
“He would say, ‘I had an affair with this actress, or that actress.’ And I took all of that with a grain of salt. I thought he might have been chasing them,” Clooney said in a press appearance for his upcoming film Suburbicon Tuesday.
“Somebody knew,” Clooney added. “There were people that brought young actresses to his hotel room. Whoever had that story and didn’t write it should be held responsible. I want to know what kind of ad dollars were spent from The Weinstein Company and from Miramax, because we should have known this. This is violating women, this is assault. This is silencing women’
The liberals are fighting for equal opportunity rape!
Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein is labeled a racist rapist because he “was going after only culture-certified “trophies”. “In white Hollywood, there’s a racially problematic “attraction question” which ‘exclude black women from the the ideas of fuckability’
There’s An Elephant In Harvey Weinstein’s Hotel Room
Buried beneath the sickening story of Harvey Weinstein’s abuse is another story — the problem of casting women by their fuckability — and who that leaves out.
by BuzzFeed Senior Culture Writer Bim Adewunmi
The elephant in the room in discussions about the alleged crimes and misdemeanors of Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein looks eerily similar to an elephant of the past. It is the Race elephant. And among the allegations, the question of race is one that we are not really looking to engage with, because it is knotty and gnarly. But it bears talking about, because there are black women in Hollywood, and not talking about it does us all a disservice.
In Hollywood, where both racism and sexism are rampant, what can look like a sort of mitigated blessing ends up highlighting another insidious problem in (the societal microcosm that is) Hollywood: Black women do not often come up for the kind of prestigious high-profile and award-winning roles that a producer with Weinstein’s power could offer.
Looking at the list of women who have accused him of harassment and assault, it’s clear he was going after not only culture-certified “trophies” but also those he felt he could suppress or control. Their fuckability was the currency he wanted, regardless of their consent. It’s important to note whom Harvey Weinstein allegedly went after, and by extension, those he did not.
In an industry as white as Hollywood, the racially problematic “attraction question” is part of what reduces the shelf life of black actresses as a matter of course, causing many of them to get half as far in twice the time it takes their white counterparts. To be deemed “fuckable” is not the honor a certain kind of man (and woman) believes it to be, but the ideas of fuckability are entrenched, and they serve to exclude black women very early on in the conversation — while dooming the women who do go on to get the roles to gross sexual harassment or assault.
REVEALED: Harvey Weinstein Helped Pay for Bill Clinton’s Legal Fees During Monica Lewinsky Scandal
In August 1998, a Washington Post report noted that Bill Clinton was being accused of perjury and obstruction of justice regarding his testimony about his conduct with Monica Lewinsky.
” Hollywood was quick to come to the president’s aid. Among the 62 donors giving the maximum $10,000 were performers and directors such as Tom Hanks, Barbra Streisand, Michael Douglas, Ron Howard, Norman Lear, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw-Spielberg as well as studio executives Jeffrey Katzenberg, David Geffen, Harvey Weinstein and Bud Yorkin.”
“We believe that no first family should face such a horrendous financial burden while trying to carry out the work which the American people elected him to do,” said David Pryor, the former Democratic senator and Clinton friend from Arkansas who founded the legal fund.
