Seal has walked back criticism of Oprah Winfrey he made in an Instagram meme that went viral.
in a video clip he shared to Instagram and Facebook Thursday, he claimed that he wasn’t targeting Oprah specifically, but the industry in general.
‘Let me start by saying that I have an enormous amount of respect for everything that Oprah has achieved and contributed in her life,’ Seal said
‘What I reposted was not an attack on Oprah at all. She just happened to be the person photographed with the pig in the picture,’
The singer then insisted: ‘What I reposted was commentary on the hypocritical and double standard nature and behavior of Hollywood.’
