Oprah Winfrey built a media empire over the last three decades.
The influential mogul has the ability to make or break careers.
And Oprah just backstabbed filmmakers exposing Hollywood for a shocking reason.
More Americans are getting sick and tired of Hollywood elites and their condescension toward the rest of the country.
That became crystal clear when comedian Ricky Gervais hosted the recent Golden Globes Awards and savaged the aloof actors and actresses in attendance.
Gervais is a self-described leftist, but even he’s sick of the sneering and superior attitude of his contemporaries.
As a result, Gervais received broad support and skyrocketed in popularity, even though big media tried to paper over the incident.
This was in stark contrast to a speech Oprah Winfrey gave at the Golden Globes two years earlier when she declared “time’s up” on sexual abusers.
In true hypocritical liberal fashion, Winfrey gave aid and comfort to Hollywood mega-producer and serial sexual predator Harvey Weinstein.
In fact, Winfrey just refused to support a documentary film that focused on Weinstein’s decades-long misconduct.
According to Showbiz 411, “Weinstein put her in the movie The Butler, in which she garnered great reviews. She also got an Oscar campaign and became very friendly with the movie mogul.”
The filmmakers switched gears and focused their project around music mogul Russell Simmons.
Even though Winfrey was also long-time friends with Simmons, she jumped aboard the project.
But Winfrey recently pulled out of the project at the last minute and left the filmmakers without a champion for the project.
Showbiz 411 notes, “[N]ow Oprah has suddenly pulled out of the project, and decided not to include it in her presentations on AppleTV+. The film will still premiere at the [Sundance Film] festival, but it now lacks Winfrey’s imprint.”
Without Winfrey’s auspices, the project might not be able to secure major distribution.
This is how Hollywood protects its own despite pretending to be our moral betters.
A similar scenario happened to acclaimed documentary filmmaker Amy Berg.
She won several accolades for a film about sexual abuse in the Catholic church, but when she made the film “An Open Secret” about sexual predators in Hollywood, the film got absolutely zero support or attention.
Ironically, the “Time’s Up” movement that Oprah Winfrey spotlighted in her Golden Globes speech essentially fell apart after leader Lisa Borders’s son was accused of sexual assault.
Do you think Oprah Winfrey intentionally tanked the documentary film?
