Instagram trolls forced Oprah Winfrey to turn off her comments after the conviction of her good friend Harvey Weinstein.
Oprah, 66, turned off her comments after a Manhattan jury found Weinstein guilty of 2 out of 5 sex assault charges on Monday.
Weinstein, 67, suffered chest pains after the verdicts were announced. He was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he is in stable condition and confined to a wheelchair.
Oprah’s IG followers were unable to leave comments under her posts after the verdict. But she turned her comments back on by Tuesday morning.
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton did respond to a reporter’s questions about her good friend, Weinstein.
Clinton, who is in Berlin promoting her new Hulu documentary, said the verdict “speaks for itself.”
The former first lady was a bit defensive when asked about Weinstein’s donations to both of her failed presidential campaigns.
“He contributed to Barack Obama’s campaign and John Kerry’s campaign and Al Gore’s campaign and everybody’s campaign,” she said.
She denied knowing about Weinstein’s predatory behavior with Hollywood starlets desperate for roles in his films.
“How could we have known? He raised money for me, the Obamas, for Democrats in general.”
President Trump called Weinstein’s conviction “a great victory for women.” He claimed he was never a fan of the disgraced movie mogul.
But he noted that Weinstein and former first lady Michelle Obama were great friends.
“The people who liked him were Democrats,” said Trump. “Michelle Obama loved him, loved him. Hillary Clinton loved him,” the president said during a press conference in New Delhi.
