Limbaugh Shade: Oprah Discriminated Against Because She’s Fat Not Black

From EurWeb 

On his radio show Friday, Rush Limbaugh weighed in on Oprah Winfrey’s recent brush with discrimination, wondering if the clerk who turned away one of the richest women in the world was not being “racist” but instead just thought the media mogul was too “fat” to be shopping in her store.

Winfrey this week told “Entertainment Tonight” a story about how she believes she was discriminated against in a Switzerland shop. She said a clerk refused to show her a handbag, suggesting Winfrey would “not be able to afford” the $38,000 price tag. “I said, ‘OK, thank you so much, you’re probably right, I can’t afford it’ and walked out of the store. Now why did she do that?” Winfrey wondered.

After retelling the story to his radio listeners, Limbaugh said she’s looking at it all wrong. “If I were Oprah, I’d be so happy I could go someplace and not be recognized,” he said, adding, “we’ve all been insulted by retail people.” Limbaugh found it hard to believe that race played any factor in the incident, saying, “Maybe it’s because The Oprah’s fat!”

    This fool looks like Balthazar from Buffy ( PLEASE Google if you dont know. After laughing tell Im not lying) and he has the nerve to call someone else fat?!?!?!?! REALLY DUDE! And I’m sure he could go plenty of places without being recognized!

  • yeah…and?

    I wish someone would get this gas bag a mirror and up his dosage of Oxy-Contin. He serves no purpose to society whatsoever.

    Really? but Rush looks like Worf from Star Trek, does he think he looks like Ryan Reynolds? Idiot..

  • Ladybug94

    Rush is such an idiot. How are you too “fat” to buy a handbag, which is what she asked to see. Plus Rush is in NO position to call anyone fat.

  • NatashaDecemberBabyThomas

    Was this Oxycotin oxymoron fat pig there when this incident took place? PotKettleBlackDOTcom!

    I don’t believe Oprah pulled the race card on this one. She said she was discriminated against. Discrimination does not equal racism.You can be discriminated for your weight, the cloth you are wearing, your maneurism, your sexual orientation, your gender and many other things.

    • Ladybug94

      Exactly but I doubt it had to do with her weight since she asked to see a handbag.

    • Guest360

      But what does her weight or sexual orientation have to do with buying a handbag? Yes these are reasons why some are discriminated against but I don’t believe that’s the case here. You don’t look at a bigger person and automatically assume they don’t have money. But there is a racial stereotype held against black people about us being poor.

        She said she was dressed plain. Some store will discriminate on what you are wearing, driving, and your maneurism, even how you speak. My point is that everyone is angry at her because they say she cried racism, but she actually never mentioned race. She said she was discriminated against. People (who were not there to witness what happened) took that and turned it into a race thing.

        • Guest360

          No. She said she was in “full Oprah gear” with the exception of her eye lashes. And people are crying racism because that’s the anecdote she chose to give when Nancy O’dell asked her had anyone ever called her the n word. Oprah responded that that word is not how RACISM shows up for her and then went on to give examples as to how it does show up, thus her story of what happened in Zurich. I would suggest you actually watch the interview. Its very informative and might clear up some of the things you’re confused about.

      oK ..
      Two things you do not address with Women …
      1. Age
      2. Weight
      Now… does he have a problem with Fat women ?

  • Breeze

    Rush needs not get any play on black blogs because we all know he talk’s out the hole that stinks and not the one that thinks. I mean by his own logic he should be insulted as well because he’s not the picture of health.
