You remember Tawana Brawley don’t ya? She made Al Sharpton super famous by helping him orchestrate a massive and destructive campaign of lies to impugn whitey. Well, it looks like Tawana has a big sister or something, as Oprah Winfrey’s story about racist behavior towards her falls apart.
Oprah Winfrey says she’s kinda sorta “sorry” for the fallout that ensued after she told the media about a “racist” encounter at a purse store in Switzerland … saying, “I’m really sorry that it got blown up.”
Oprah addressed the media at the premiere of “The Butler” in L.A. last night — backpedaling after the shop in question started to refute O’s allegations of racism during an incident last month.
The shop owner says the whole thing was a “misunderstanding” and had “nothing to do with racism.”
Last night, Oprah said … “I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I’m really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I’m sorry that I said it was Switzerland.”
Problem is … O’s full of it. What did she think was going to happen when she went on national TV and cried racism? The media was just going to ignore that??
Was that a facetious question? She probably figured that as Obama’s friend and protégé, she would also get a pass from them. Except they were so eager to propagate the racist narrative that they went to look for more details only to find Oprah made the shit up. Sucks to be them. Too much crying wolf.
