Comedienne Mo'Nique and her husband/manager Sidney Hicks called out media Guru Oprah Winfrey for interviewing Michael Jackson's accusers in a video posted on their popular YouTube channel.
Mo'Nique, 41, and Sidney commented on Oprah's interview with Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who both claim Jackson touched them inappropriately when they were young boys.
Oprah, 62, interviewed Robson and Safechuck after they appeared in a documentary, Leaving Neverland, that aired this week on HBO.
Mo'Nique and Sidney discussed Oprah's interview during their web series "Open Relationship" on YouTube.com on Wednesday.
"Was it right, or was it for ratings," they asked. The couple took calls from their viewers who agreed that Oprah was wrong for throwing the late king of pop under the bus to appease her powerful Hollywood friends (read: David Geffen) and to take the heat off of their own skeletons in the closet.
One caller said Oprah gained fame and fortune from the dysfunction of Black people. "If you don't have a movie or book deal, you can't even sneeze in her direction."
The caller added, "I'm not watching anything she has to say about Michael Jackson until she calls out her homeboy Harvey Weinstein.
Mo'Nique also noted that Robson's lawsuit against Jackson's estate was tossed out of court in 2014.
Oprah's After Neverland interview with Robson and Safechuck was a flop. According to Deadline.com, less than 800,000 viewers tuned in.
