Seal Accuses Oprah of Knowing About Harvey Weinstein's Sexual Abuse 'For Decades'

Seal Accuses Oprah of Knowing About Harvey Weinstein's Sexual Abuse 'For Decades'

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.

Winfrey's speech, as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award, touched on the legions of women who have called out sexual harassers - and her dream of a day "when nobody has to say "me too" again". But their time is up.

Seal added in the caption, "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". "My bad." He followed that sentiment up with the hashtag #SanctimoniousHollywood.

Chrissy Teigen jumped to Oprah Winfrey's defense when Seal denounced the media mogul in a meme shared over Instagram. "Hmm. Let's just say we've all heard things about each other, haven't we?" she wrote in the comments.

Oprah addressed the Weinstein sex scandal on her Facebook account late past year (17), writing: "I've been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's ugly behavior and haven't been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation".

In the video, the Kiss From A Rose star backtracked, claiming he'd not meant to single out or personally attack Oprah.

Best known as the host of her multi-award-winning talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, which ended in 2011, Winfrey is also the founder of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.

We're still not sure he'd vote for Oprah, but we KNOW he ain't voting for Stacey!

However, Winfrey described Weinstein's behavior as "hideous" in a Facebook post, noting in a CBS interview that the problem of sexual harassment further across Hollywood.

'I believe a conscious people are a progressive people'.

Sure, Winfrey posed for pictures with Harvey Weinstein, so did nearly everyone else in show business.

Weinstein has been accused of harassment and/or abuse by over 90 women. The implication is that standing next to someone in a photo op makes them partially responsible for the alleged abuser's transgressions.

It's worth pointing out that Seal can dish out criticism, but he can't take it.
