Oprah Must Disavow Harvey Weinstein

Oprah Must Disavow Harvey Weinstein, by Paul Watson.

Given that Oprah Winfrey has set herself up as a figurehead for the #MeToo movement, and is even reportedly considering running for president, it is imperative that she disavow serial sex predator and her friend for many years Harvey Weinstein.

Oprah maintained a close professional relationship with Harvey Weinstein over the course of two decades and was caught on camera kissing and hugging the notorious accused rapist at numerous events and award ceremonies.

Even after Weinstein was exposed, TMZ reported that Oprah called him to offer her support. Winfrey’s spokesperson denied the claim, although added that Oprah would be open to doing an interview with Weinstein.

British actress Kadian Noble said she met Weinstein at a 2014 event in London and that Oprah was “swinging off his arm”. She said that Weinstein used Oprah to lure her in with the promise of boosting her career.

Weinstein subsequently allegedly raped Noble, prompting her to file a sex trafficking lawsuit against Weinstein in a Manhattan federal court in November.

“Harvey wasn’t acting alone. Harvey wasn’t allowed and enabled to do what he did to Kadian and other women without help,” said Noble’s attorney, Jeff Herman.

How can Oprah Winfrey credibly claim to represent victims of sexual assault when she has failed to vehemently condemn Harvey Weinstein and refused to mention his name during her Golden Globes speech?

Are we to believe that during her close and sustained professional relationship with the disgraced director, Oprah had no idea whatsoever about Weinstein’s behavior, despite other celebrities such as Seth McFarlane and Courtney Love acknowledging they knew years before Weinstein was publicly exposed?

According to screenwriter, actor and producer Scott Rosenberg, whose first two films were distributed by Harvey and Bob Weinstein’s company Miramax, “everybody f**king knew” about Weinstein’s behavior in Hollywood. …

In addition, Oprah has never spoken out against another serial sex predator — Bill Clinton — prompting one of his victims, Juanita Broaddrick, to address Oprah in a tweet in which she said, “Funny I’ve never heard you mention my name. CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? Guess not. My rapist was/is your friend, Bill Clinton.”
