This is so perfect. Don’t mess with Oprah.
Last week Oprah Winfrey hit the campaign trail in Georgia for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Within hours of Oprah’s visit to the peach state a white supremacist group put out a robocall to Georgia voters targeting Oprah and Abrams.
So on Monday night an angry Oprah fired back.
“Jesus don’t like ugly,” Oprah said in an Instagram video.
“I heard people were making racist robocalls in my name against Stacey Abrams, who I am one hundred percent for, in Georgia,” Oprah says. “I just want to say: Jesus don’t like ugly … And we know what to do about that: vote. Tomorrow show up and show out, and vote.”
The robocall was funded by TheRoadToPower.com, the white supremacist group who also sent out disgusting racist robocalls a couple of weeks ago in Florida against Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate for governor.
In the racist call sent out in Georgia a voice impersonating Oprah says, “This is the magical negro, Oprah Winfrey, asking you to make my fellow negress, Stacey Abrams, the governor of Georgia.”
“Years ago, the Jews who own the American media saw something in me – the ability to trick dumb white women into thinking I was like them,” the voice continues. “I see that same potential in Stacey Abrams.”
Watch how Oprah responded. It was perfect.
