While the rest of the world is hailing Oprah for taking a stand against Hollywood’s sexual abuse problems and supporting the #TimesUp campaign during the just concluded Golden Globe Award, Seal is not having it.
The British singer and songwriter took to his Instagram page to call Oprah out for being complicit. The ‘Kiss From A Rose’ singer, whose legal name is Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel, uploaded a meme of Oprah kissing Harvey Weinstein and a picture of Oprah, Harvey, and an innocent looking Rita Ora. The words inscribed on the meme reads: ‘When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution’.
And if for whatever reason, you are still not clear on how the three time Grammy winner feels about the issue, check out his caption.
‘Oh I forgot, that’s right…..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. #SanctimoniousHollywood’
The last time Seal and Oprah were linked together was in 2007 when Seal appeared on Oprah’s show. The pop singer broke down in tears after the talk show host brought him together with his long lost foster sister. Seal and his foster sister, Hillary Scooling, grew up together in Romford, Essex before she relocated to Chicago. The 54 year old entertainer had lived with Hilary Scooling and her family after he was born until he was four, after which he went to live with his biological mother.
