"What I re-posted was not an attack on Oprah at all", he adds.

"This is one of the greatest speeches they ever heard".

British-born musician Seal lashed out at Fox News on Thursday, claiming the news organization was using him "as a pawn against Oprah" by reporting on a meme he reposted on Instagram of a pair of photos of Oprah Winfrey with disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, including one in which she appears to be kissing the producer's cheek.

He continued, "To those of us who support the Me Too movement, just know this, not one of the women who have been sexually abused, not one of the women who have come forward has received any real justice whatsoever".
