Oprah Winfrey reacts to reports on sex trafficking charges
Oprah Winfrey, an American media executive, has denied claims that she was arrested for sex trafficking.
Numerous reports claimed the billionaire’s house in Boca Raton, Florida, was being raided, and that she had been arrested on sex trafficking charges and possession of child porn.
Winfrey whose name became the No. 1 trend on Twitter on Tuesday night, took to her Twitter account to refute the claims
She stated nothing of such had happened and that she was sanitizing and keeping herself safe from the recent breakout of coronavirus.
In her words, Oprah said “Just got a phone call that my name is trending and being trolled for some awful FAKE thing and It’s NOT TRUE.
“Haven’t been raided, or arrested. Just sanitizing and self-distancing with the rest of the world.
“Stay safe everybody.”
Meanwhile, a good number of Twitter users who were excited about the fake news mocked her for doing documentaries on men who were accused of sexual assault, whereas she had her own skeletons.
The claims had come months after 50 Cent, US rapper, had accused Winfrey of targeting only black men in her sexual assault documentaries.
“I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men. No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Micheal Jackson and Russell Simmons,” the rapper had alleged.
“Gale hit R Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Micheal Jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys’ butts.
“These documentaries are publicly convicting their targets. It makes them guilty till proven innocent.”
