Extremely Inconvenient Photos For Oprah If She Decides To Run For President

The caption read: "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". Instead, Noble says she was used for sex.

World-renowned pop star Seal didn't tiptoe around his feelings toward Oprah Winfrey, calling her out for her alleged knowledge about the accusations of sexual misconduct against former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The second picture in the meme shows Weinstein touching the arm of singer Rita Ora as she sits next to a smiling Oprah.

So...what is Chrissy talking about when she writes that, "we've all heard things about each other"?

Seal isn't the only public figure who doesn't think Winfrey would make a great president.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 30 women since the New York Times' exposé came out last October. There certainly is much to be said about how an alleged predator was able to have a successful decades-long career (especially since this was apparently an "open secret"), but it is unclear whether Oprah knew about it at that time. "But suddenly they all think you are the solution". We also examined contemporary reports on the 2014 Critics Choice Awards and couldn't find any mention of Winfrey and Weinstein engaging in inappropriate canoodling during the awards show, something that surely would have made the gossip pages if it had been true. Someone from his team reached out to her to see if she would talk to him, and she said she would if it was for an interview.

The statement added, "She was only interested [in a 60 Minutes interview with Weinstein] if he'd look in the mirror and give her the honest, bone-marrow truth".

The Instagram post comes on the heels of Winfrey's speech on Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards where she became the first black woman to receive the Cecil Mille Award, an honorary award presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.
