Ferguson Supporters Are Angry At Oprah For Criticizing Lack of Leadership
There’s a lot of Ferguson protest advocates who are angry at Oprah for daring to speak out about the “movement,” despite her supporting their cause.
Of course, Oprah actually does a lot for the black community, but Ferguson protesters just want another handout. Here are her comments:
“I think it’s wonderful to march and to protest and it’s wonderful to see all across the country, people doing it,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively.
But it’s not enough to march, says Winfrey.
“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.’ “
And here are people angry that she has an opinion:

Ohhhh I see. Oprah is giving sage, but seemingly dismissive advice, as our elders do. http://t.co/JaPmpg7tYx

This has to be my favorite – can’t feed your kid? It’s Oprah’s selfish fault!
But I think this is the real reason Oprah is so tone-deaf:
Damn you IlluminOprah!!! Y’know I can respect some for saying she just doesn’t know what she’s talking about but the ones demanding she give them money are laughably opportunistic. They must be learning from Al Sharpton that if you lead an angry mob, you can extort money out of frightened rich people.
