SINGER SEAL has called out Oprah Winfrey and has said he refuses to believe she had no idea Harvey Weinstein was an alleged serial predator.

The media mogul stormed the Golden Globes and delivered a rousing speech after accepting her Cecil B. DeMille Award award on Sunday (Jan 7).

However the Kiss From a Rose star isn't buying the idea that she was completely unaware of the disgraced movie boss' alleged sexual misconduct.

Taking to Instagram, the crooner wrote: "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. My bad."

Oprah addressed the Weinstein sex scandal on her Facebook account late last year, writing: "I’ve been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein’s hideous behavior and haven’t been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation."

More than 80 women, including Salma Hayek, Lupita Nyong'o, Mira Sorvino, Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd, and Gwyneth Paltrow, have accused the shamed movie producer of inappropriate behaviour, assault, rape, and misconduct.
