Oprah Winfrey is coming under fire today, for making some very controversial statements about child molesters. Some are saying that Oprah's statements can be twisted to support a pro-pedophile agenda.
Oprah interviewed Wade Robeson.and James Safechuck - two men who claim Michael Jackson molested them in the documentary film Finding Neverland. During the interview, Oprah started talking about how a "good" child molester knows how to make a child feel "loved" and "needed", and "pleases" the child.
She told the audience, "If the abuser is any good . . . molestation feels great."
According to the Washington Post, "Winfrey, who revealed on her talk show decades ago that she was sexually abused when she was young, said Reed’s documentary did an excellent job of illustrating what she had always tried to explain — child sexual abuse is also about seduction."
“I know people all over the world are going to be in an uproar and debating whether or not Michael Jackson did these things and whether these two men are lying or not lying. But for me, this moment transcends Michael Jackson,” Winfrey said. “It is much bigger than any one person. This is a moment in time that allows us to see this societal corruption. It’s like a scourge on humanity. . . If it gets you, our audience, to see how it happens, then some good would have come of it.”
Here's what she said:
Many of Oprah's fans are outraged by her saying that molestation "feels great."
In fact, most victim of molestation don't remember it feeling "great". They remember feeling shame, disgusted, hurt, and pain. "Great": is not a word that should be used to describe molestation, according to many of her fans.
Some online are asking Oprah to apologize for comments that many find to be "reckless."
