What is 2020? Oprah Winfrey is debunking a "fake" story that she was arrested for sex trafficking. Her name began trending on Twitter late Tuesday night after trolls took QAnon's conspiracy theory to the next level, claiming she was put behind bars in a global sex trafficking ring. The theory also claims that Coronavirus is a hoax created to hide celebrities' involvement in a global drug and child sex trafficking ring. The attention the story drew on Twitter forced the 66-year-old to get out of bed to tweet her innocence last night. Taking to her social media, Oprah called the story an "awful FAKE thing."

"Just got a phone call that my name is trending. And being trolled for some awful FAKE thing," the longtime television host tweeted. "It’s NOT TRUE. Haven’t been raided, or arrested." Oprah also said she's been bunkered down at home practicing social distancing just like us all amid the Coronavirus outbreak. "Just sanitizing and self distancing with the rest of the world," she joked, before signing off saying, "Stay safe everybody." Conspiracy theorists wouldn't let it go and immediately began tweeting back to the star with their suspicions.

"Oprah has a phone in jail pass it on," one person responded. "Let those kids out Oprah," wrote another. "girl stop lying we know you did it," added a third. But not all the replies were trolling Oprah. Some fans came to the star's rescue to defend her. "The fact that Oprah, a queen, has to lower herself to deny this trash is a shame on this generation and society at large. Y'all need Jesus. Also, how much drama do y' all need?! Literally the world is closed. Call your mothers and beg for forgiveness," one fan wrote.

She has longtime been criticized for her coverage of the troubled stars. Many showed the individual troubled stars celebrating in victory which, of course, left several Twitter users debating about the trio's innocence. "Y’all believed Michael Jackson was guilty and y’all crucified him, y’all crucified r Kelly, Weinstein and anybody else with that shit on their name. Let me go get the wood and nails so y’all can give Oprah cap ass her just due. You reap whatever you sow," one person wrote. "Michael Jackson is far from innocent he was probably one of the worst pedophiles ranks right up there with R Kelly, difference is MJ had enough money to buy his freedom. But don't fool yourself into thinking he wasnt a pedophile," added another.
