On Saturday (August 29), the 47-year-old actress and activist took to Twitter to speak out about her mistrust for the 67-year-old TV mogul, while including a photo of Oprah kissing disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein on the cheek, which was taken at the 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.

“I am glad more are seeing the ugly truth of @Oprah. I wish she were real, but she isn’t. From being pals with Weinstein to abandoning & destroying Russell Simmon’s [sic] victims, she is about supporting a sick power structure for personal gain, she is as fake as they come. #lizard.” Rose tweeted.
Rose‘s tweet comes after a past interview of Oprah with Dolly Parton resurfaced on social media.
In the clip, Oprah brings up Dolly‘s plastic surgery and her battle with depression.
Many believed that Oprah brought up these topics in order to try and “embarrass” Dolly.
Years ago, Oprah was friends with Harvey before his sexual misconduct was brought to light. Rose has previously accused Harvey of raping her.
In January 2020, Oprah announced she would no longer be an executive producer on a documentary about Russell, which highlighted stories from his sexual assault accusers.
“First and foremost, I want it to be known that I unequivocally believe and support the women,” Oprah said at the time. “Their stories deserve to be told and heard. In my opinion, there is more work to be done on the film to illuminate the full scope of what the victims endured, and it has become clear that the filmmakers and I are not aligned in that creative vision.”
Rose‘s comments about Oprah comes several weeks after she called out one of her former co-stars.
