Oprah Winfrey was the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille award at the Golden Globe Awards ceremony. During her acceptance speech, she delivered a powerful message combating racism, sexism and many of the -isms not just plaguing Hollywood in the heels of the Harvey Weinstein’s and Kevin Spacey’s of the world, but in politics and our everyday lives.
Oprah delivers a memorable awe-inspiring speech about strong women and the men who stand up and fight against injustice, corruption and oppression and celebrates decades of women who have braved adversity and assault to come forward to tell their stories to inspire change.
No one should be punished or abused for chasing their dreams.
Since then controversy ensued as singer Seal has criticized Oprah on her hypocrisy citing that she knew about the seedy dealings of Weinstein and as many other A-listers in Hollywood, failed to do anything about it for decades.
