Everybody loves Oprah, right? Aside from being a fan of all the great things she has done, we really have no other choice: you are either with Oprah or against her. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who has a simultaneous love and fear for Oprah. We all get that. Or at least that's what I thought. It really blows my mind that anyone would have the gall to come for Oprah Winfrey, but it has happened.
And as much as I refuse to be a part of this disrespect, I (not so secretly) live for it. As long as I'm not in the fray, then I don't mind this kind of thing going down. Yeah, part of me is vicariously offended for Oprah, but at the same time it's Oprah and her life is a billion times better than anything I will ever have going on. So my sympathy is rather limited.
There is just something wildly entertaining about anyone thinking that he can get away with that disrespect. I mean, it's Oprah Winfrey. No one stands a chance against her. And if I am keeping it real, I am actually a little bit scared as I write this up. I feel like she has people everywhere and can exact some kind of revenge on me at any moment.
But hey, at least I didn't do anything as bad as these people did. So in the grand scheme of things, I am looking okay in comparison. All I'm doing is rehashing the past disrespect and making it relevant again.
10 Lindsay Lohan
9 David Letterman
8 Sarah Palin
6 Snoop Dogg
5 50 Cent
4 James Frey
3 Willow Smith
2 Jenny McCarthy
1 Waka Flocka
In a video that surfaced in 2013, Waka Flocka made some remarks about Oprah. When a friend asked if he would get at the billionaire, he replied, “I won’t f**k that ugly bi**h!” Well, damn. In his defense, this was a private conversation with friends, but I'm sure that he knew it was being taped. Thankfully, the rapper knew that he messed up and eventually apologized for his off the cuff remarks.
It's hard to find anyone who would be willing to go against Oprah, but it actually does happen. It's like a car wreck on the side of the road: no one wants to see that, but you cannot actually turn away. Somehow these people all survived and hopefully they learned a lesson.
