On Saturday night, Oprah was tweeting promotions for her new show while many of her followers were expressing rage over the Zimmerman verdict. That prompted Oprah to tweet back apologizing, saying that she was “in another part of the world” and “didn’t know there was a verdict.”
We hear you Oprah, but if you have access to Twitter, then you have access to news– no television required. But given her hectic schedule, one can assume that keeping up with news across time zones becomes a headache.
Prior to George Zimmerman’s arrest, Oprah expressed her thoughts about him being allowed to walk free.
“It is a tragedy and it is a shame that we’re sitting here 33 days later and there hasn’t been an arrest, or questioning of what actually happened. It’s a tragedy and it is a shame and we all know it,” said Winfrey during an interview with Extra‘s AJ Calloway.
“I saw some people on Twitter saying nothing has changed, the same thing’s going on. Lots has changed and you know why? Because black people, white people, brown people, yellow people all over this country and all over the world are saying the same thing… it’s a tragedy and it’s a shame and justice needs to be served,” concluded Winfrey.
During that interview, she also expressed an interest in interviewing George Zimmerman. Wonder if that interview will happen now that Zimmerman’s a free man?
