I know this should not be funny. I am concerned for her well being. But, part of me wonders if this is some karmic nudge telling Oprah to back up off us brothers.
Oprah and her best friend Gayle King have been accused of targeting successful Black men while they are alive and in their death.
Most recently Gayle King received death threats for her line of questioning in an interview with WNBA legend Lisa Leslie. In the wake of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna’s death in a helicopter accident, King found it appropriate to ask Leslie about Bryant’s sexual assault case. Leslie maintained her composure and stated that she did not know Kobe to be the type of man who would assault women.
The internet, specifically Snoop Dogg was not so forgiving. Snoop addressed King’s questions and called her a profanity laced name. Snoop has since apologized.
Russell Simmons, Bill Cosby, R Kelly and Micheal Jackson (who is dead) have all come under the scrutiny of Winfrey and King. While Charlie Rose and Harvey Weinstein, white men, accused or have been convicted of similar crimes, who are close friends of King and Winfrey do not experience the same type of scrutiny.
It is because of this that I can’t help but think that the ghost Michael Jackson moonwalked across the stage and caused Oprah to fall while whispering “Just leave me alone” in her ear, or maybe not.
What do you think? Did Mike do it? Share in the comments.
Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King are not about that social media life. Oprah visited Hoda and Jenna on “Today” and spoke about her best friends condition after the response she has received following her interview with Lisa Leslie.
King pressed Lisa Leslie about Kobe’s legacy and how his sexual assault case would tarnish it. The internet went ballistic. Snoop cursed her out and got a tweet from Bill Cosby who is in prison thanking him for it.
King has since apologized but it has essentially fallen on deaf ears. When asked how her best friend was doing Oprah said “She is not doing well, because she has death threats and has to travel with security and she’s feeling very much attacked. “ Oprah continued “Bill Cosby is tweeting from jail. She feels like she was put in a really terrible position because that interview had already ran.”
Monique took to instagram recently to give Oprah Winfrey a piece of her mind. Monique decided to share her thoughts with respect to how different Oprah is treating Harvey Weinstein and Russell Simmons.
Both men are currently under investigation for alleged sex crimes against women. Moniques position is that Oprah’s friendship with Harvey Weinstein has caused her not to be as vigilant as she has been with Russell Simmons and Michael Jackson.
The Leaving Neverland documentary about Michael Jackson which was proven to have many inconsistencies was followed up with an interview of the accusers by Oprah. Oprah was also set to produce the documentary On the Record. The film presents the stories of several women who have accused Russell Simmons of sexual assault.
Oprah has since stepped down from the project. She issued a statement “I have decided that I will no longer be executive producer on The Untitled Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering Documentary and it will not air on Apple TV+, Winfrey continued “First and foremost, I want it to be known that I unequivocally believe and support the women. Their stories deserve to be told and heard. In my opinion, there is more work to be done on the film to illuminate the full scope of what the victims endured and it has become clear that the filmmakers and I are not aligned in that creative vision.”
Monique has taken issue with the way Oprah is handling Weinstein’s accusations with kid gloves as it compares to Simmons and Jackson. Take a look at her instagram post below.
