Black Twitter is dragging Ava DuVernay by her dreadlocks for an old post she wrote defending serial rapist Harvey Weinstein.

DuVernay and her sisters in Christ - Oprah and Gayle King - are successful Black women who have come under attack for vigorously defending Weinstein in the past.

Minutes after Weinstein's split verdicts on Monday, Oprah turned off her Instagram comments. And DuVernay went on a blocking spree when Black Twitter retweeted an old post in which she proudly defended the now convicted rapist.

In her post dated June 1, 2012, DuVernay acknowledged she'd "heard all the Harvey stories over the years, but still a fan."

Winfrey and King, who also heard all the stories about Weinstein's sordid history, have yet to comment on their former friend's conviction.
