Yesterday the singer posted a meme that had originated elsewhere, which depicts two images: one showing Winfrey kissing Weinstein on the cheek, and another with the pop star Rita Ora sat in between Weinstein and Winfrey. "I think this is a moment where no matter what business you work in, there have been women who not only had the disease to please, that's a part of it, but who felt that in order to keep my job, in order to keep my positioning, in order to keep moving forward, I've got to smile, I've got to look the other way, I've got to pretend he didn't say that, I've got to pretend he didn't touch me - I think those days are about to be over".
"She just happened to be the person photographed with the pig in the picture", he said. "No, what I reposted was commentary on the hypocritical and double standard nature and behavior of Hollywood, so Fox News, back off".
Furthermore, the unapologetic and unconcerned tone struck in this meme stands in stark contrast to the comments that we know Winfrey actually made about the accusation levied at Weinstein.
In his message, Seal also slams actress Stacey Dash for tweeting a link to an article about Seal's original post and writing, "Ouch, he does make a good point though". International singer-songwriter Seal posted an image on Instagram, not praising Oprah, but calling her out. TMZ ran a story when the Weinstein scandal first starting shaking loose, claiming that Weinstein said Oprah contacted him and offered to publicly support him.
Soon after the awards show, many fans and celebrities, including Meryl Streep, called for Winfrey to try for the Oval Office in 2020. But the singer has accused the media maven of being an example of 'sanctimonious Hollywood', reports dailymail.co.uk. "#RealTalk for a second we all know what would happen to any one of those power abusers if they looked like me".
