British singer/songwriter Seal took to Instagram yesterday to call out the hypocrisy in claiming that Oprah Winfrey is any sort of champion for women’s rights. For years, not only has Oprah Winfrey been a close friend of Harvey Weinstein, but she has also been one of his greatest enablers.
Seal slammed Winfrey, posting two pictures of her with Weinstein with a caption written over the images: “When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution,” a text overlay on top of the photographs reads.”

In the image description, Seal wrote an even more damning takedown of the liberal-favorite:
“I forgot, that’s right … you’d heard the rumors but you had no idea he [Weinstein] was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed (sic) actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad. #SanctimoniousHollywood,” Seal wrote.
Seal’s frustration stems from those in Hollywood who have stated they believe Winfrey to be the “solution” to sexual misconduct in not just the entertainment industry, but America.
