Oprah mocked for close ties with Weinstein following potential 2020 bid

The contributor to the Batman Forever soundtrack posted a meme featuring photos of Winfrey cozying up to disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein emblazoned with the phrase: "When you have been part of the problem for decades...but suddenly they all think you are the solution". But their time is up.

Model and author Chrissy Teigen responded to Seal's Instagram photo by posting a comment that reads: "Hmm".

"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. Let's just say we've all heard things about each other, haven't we?"

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

"The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah said Winfrey would be the "perfect opponent" for President Donald Trump because "she's everything that he's not". "There are no plans for an interview at this time". "And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure they are the leaders to take us to the time where nobody has to say "me too" again".

His caption alleges Winfrey knew about Weinstein's sexual misconduct.

Winfrey addressed the allegations against Weinstein in a Facebook post last October. She starred in and produced movies that his company distributed, including The Butler and The Great Debaters.The presidential buzz followed Winfrey's impassioned call for "a brighter morning even in our darkest nights" at the U.S. awards' show in a speech that left some viewers contemplating the idea of the Democratic Party embracing a celebrity candidate of its own to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. "This was an observation of the toxic nature of Hollywood and I believe that a conscious people are a progressive people".

Publicly, Winfrey has denounced Weinstein's "hideous behavior". Anyone who showed up to an awards show probably ended up in a picture with Weinstein. The singer didn't particularly handle it well when he was called out in 2011 for performing at a birthday party for notorious human rights abuser, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov.
