OPRAH WILL NOT BE BULLIED AND RUSSELL SIMMONS CAN’T SILENCE HER! OPRAH SAID “I WANT TO GET IT RIGHT”
Oprah said this is not a “victory lap” for Russell Simmons. She is still supporting the #METOO Movement and nothing has changed. Oprah herself is a victim of sexual assault and she doesn’t take his lightly.
The television host made it clear that she stood by the women in the film: "I believe the women's voices deserve to be heard, and as an executive producer I was also in a position where I think things were not right. I wanted the context of the story to be broadened, I wanted more women to be brought in." Oprah said Russell Simmons can not silence her. She continued to say "This is not a victory lap for him. I cannot be silenced by Russell Simmons after all I've been through," she continued. "[It's] ridiculous to think I could be intimidated by Russell Simmons."
Oprah said in an interview that more work was needed on the film and it became clear that the filmmakers and her weren’t aligned in the creative vision. End of story!
