The “Kiss From a Rose” singer posted a meme of O that has been circulating around the internet showing two photos of her with Harvey Weinstein and stating, “WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN PART OF THE PROBLEM FOR DECADES,” and “BUT SUDDENLY THEY ALL THINK YOU ARE THE SOLUTION.”
Seal doubled down on the sentiment, writing “Oh I forgot, that’s right…..you’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed [sic] actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad. #SanctimoniousHollywood”
The meme makes it clear Seal has issues with the praise Oprah has received after her passionate Golden Globes speech, but he also extends his criticism towards the rest of Hollywood who he believes were complicit with Harvey Weinstein even though they had allegedly been aware of the rumors of abuse.
Looks like we know someone who won’t be voting Oprah 2020.
4:20PM: Seal is now trying to clarify his controversial post, explaining that he wasn’t trying to attack Oprah, but was instead making commentary on the “hypocritical and double-standard in Hollywood.”
