After Oprah Winfrey’s audacious Golden Globes speech, the singer known as Seal called her out on Instagram, claiming she knew about the Harvey Weinstein rumors and never did anything to help.

Her speech, largely focused on sexually abused women and the “MeToo” campaign but Seal accused Winfrey of being another Hollywood ‘sanctimonious.’

When posting the picture of Oprah kissing Weinstein on the cheek, Seal captioned it with “‘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.”

Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes felt very much like a campaign speech, which began to ignite rumors that she was planning to run for president in 2020.

Here is Oprah’s speech:

“In 1964, I was a little girl sitting on the linoleum floor of my mother’s house in Milwaukee watching Anne Bancroft present the Oscar for best actor at the 36th Academy Awards. She opened the envelope and said five words that literally made history:’ The winner is Sidney Poitier.’ Up to the stage came the most elegant man I ever remembered. His tie was white, his skin was black—and he was being celebrated. I’d never seen a black man being celebrated like that. I tried many, many times to explain what a moment like that means to a little girl, a kid watching from the cheap seats as my mom came through the door bone tired from cleaning other people’s houses. But all I can do is quote and say that the explanation in Sidney’s performance in Lilies of the Field: ‘Amen, amen, amen, amen.’

In 1982, Sidney received the Cecil B. DeMille award right here at the Golden Globes and it is not lost on me that at this moment, there are some little girls watching as I become the first black woman to be given this same award. It is an honor—it is an honor and it is a privilege to share the evening with all of them and also with the incredible men and women who have inspired me, who challenged me, who sustained me and made my journey to this stage possible. Dennis Swanson who took a chance on me for A.M. Chicago. Saw me on the show and said to Steven Spielberg, she’s Sophia in ‘The Color Purple.’ Gayle who’s been a friend and Stedman who’s been my rock.

I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. We know the press is under siege these days. We also know it’s the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice. To—to tyrants and victims, and secrets and lies. I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this: what I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story.

“But it’s not just a story affecting the entertainment industry. It’s one that transcends any culture, geography, race, religion, politics, or workplace. So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue. They’re the women whose names we’ll never know. They are domestic workers and farm workers. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they’re in academia, engineering, medicine, and science. They’re part of the world of tech and politics and business. They’re our athletes in the Olympics and they’re our soldiers in the military.

And there’s someone else, Recy Taylor, a name I know and I think you should know, too. In 1944, Recy Taylor was a young wife and mother walking home from a church service she’d attended in Abbeville, Alabama, when she was abducted by six armed white men, raped, and left blindfolded by the side of the road coming home from church. They threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone, but her story was reported to the NAACP where a young worker by the name of Rosa Parks became the lead investigator on her case and together they sought justice. But justice wasn’t an option in the era of Jim Crow. The men who tried to destroy her were never persecuted. Recy Taylor died ten days ago, just shy of her 98th birthday. She lived as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.

Their time is up. And I just hope—I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years, and even now tormented, goes marching on. It was somewhere in Rosa Parks’ heart almost 11 years later, when she made the decision to stay seated on that bus in Montgomery, and it’s here with every woman who chooses to say, ‘Me too.’ And every man—every man who chooses to listen.

In my career, what I’ve always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave. To say how we experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere, and how we overcome. I’ve interviewed and portrayed people who’ve withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights. So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! 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 that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me too’ again.”

    A picture worth a 1000 words. Never cared for oprah and this photo just cemented/confirmed my feelings. Compare oprah’s positions/views with the 10 Planks of the Commie Manifesto and clearly she is a commie/socialist, welfare statitst, loot A to satisfy B, crooked DemonKrait, flaming snowflake social justice deceiving warrior. The commie/socialist MSM have pulled a veil of sweetness over her to conceal the immorality of her wickedness, her statist filth of using political violence, force and aggression to impose her opinions. Politics if violence and those who think good comes of such evil are deluded.

    The biggest secret on the sexual harassment and abuse going in Hollywood, is that there are hundred of high profile “women” adding and abetting these perpetrators to keep their money rolling into their pockets, Oprah, Streep, Jolie, Ashely Judd, Madonna, etc…

  • SerfCityHereWeCome

    LOL, Apparently that leftist dream flamed out even faster than President Wesley Clark’s landslide defeat of Dubya in 2004 after that one hilarious poll at just about this time during that election cycle.

  • markypolo

    Sorry, I am so sick of listening to the poor, poor abused American Black people cry about how the big bad white man has treated them so terrible.
    Gee, why aren’t they running back to Africa? Oh, that’s right, no welfare, no food stamps, no section 8 housing, no free Health Insurance, no free cell phones, no free College Education, no Affirmative Action. Yeah, white man has been so cruel to them.
    I DESPISE having had to bust my butt for lazy, lying, thieving, drug addicted democrats ( both white and black). I run my own business for 30 years, never met an honest democrat. Period.

  • donl

    I wonder how many “Jobs” Harvey helped her get?
