Oprah would very much like to be excluded from this narrative.
Tuesday night on Twitter, the host of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” debunked an outlandish rumor that alleged she was raided and arrested for her involvement in a global sex-trafficking ring.
“Just got a phone call that my name is trending. And being trolled for some awful FAKE thing. It’s NOT TRUE. Haven’t been raided, or arrested,” the CEO and chairwoman of Harpo Productions exclaimed.
In fact, the 66-year-old has been engaging in “social distancing” to stop the spread of COVID-19.
“Just sanitizing and self distancing with the rest of the world. Stay safe everybody,” the mogul added.
Per the Washington Post, the allegations against Winfrey were reportedly spread by followers of QAnon, a conspiracy theory that believes an alleged U.S. hidden government is plotting against President Donald Trump and his supporters.
Apparently, some QAnon enthusiasts reportedly believe elite politicians and celebrities belong to an alleged sex-trafficking ring and will soon be arrested.
According to the newspaper, QAnon devotees have also reportedly been sharing a Facebook post that says the coronavirus is “the biggest covert U.S. intelligence operation that the world has ever seen.”
Craziness aside, Winfrey recently celebrated her 40-year friendship with BFF Gayle King by interviewing the CBS anchor on her “Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus” tour.
