Speculation over Winefrey's possible presidential aspiration ran rampant this week after the long-time public figure gave a powerful speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night, proclaiming "a new day is on the horizon" in America. The caption on the photo was, "What you have been part of the problem for decades/But suddenly they all think you are the solution".

Winfrey's speech also referenced the #MeToo movement to protest sexual harassment and assault.

Yahoo News' headline was "Seal Takes Shot at Oprah Over Harvey Weinstein Connection" while Variety went with "Seal Accuses Oprah of Knowing About Harvey Weinstein's Sexual Misconduct".

The post had quickly gone viral, with people saying his comments were directed at Oprah.

"Oh I forgot, that's right. you'd heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed (sic) actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into". Model Chrissy Teigen noted everyone has a past. While the actress' co-star Tom Hanks, who Globes host Seth Meyers suggested should be Oprah's running mate if she chose to run, added, "I believe Oprah wakes up in the morning and both personally and professionally wonders what she can do specifically in order to make the world a better place".
