Oprah Comments On Ferguson Protests & Upset Protesters!

January 4, 2015  |  

Momma O may or may not be on the sh*tlist of #BlackLivesMatter protesters around the country. 

In an interview People Magazine, Oprah ruffled the feathers of some of the protesters. Oprah stated, “I think it’s wonderful to march and to protest and it’s wonderful to see all across the country, people doing it. What I’m looking for is some kind of leadership to come out of this to say, ‘This is what we want. This is what has to change, and these are the steps that we need to take to make these changes, and this is what we’re willing to do to get it.’ “

The statement upset many protesters, who took to Twitter to vent.

Oprah has yet to comment on the statement. However, many are claiming it’s not that deep. She is entitled to her own opinion. Who do you believe is correct? Did Oprah push it? Or is she simply stating her opinion?
