Following Oprah Winfrey’s Golden Globes speech Sunday that spoke out against inequality and sexual harassment in the workplace, people—especially those in Hollywood—began entertaining the idea of Winfrey as the next president of the United States.
And it was difficult to find a person who didn’t think Winfrey should run — until former nursing home administrator, Juanita Broaddrick, who’s accused former president Bill Clinton of rape, tweeted directly at the talk show host:

Then certain Hollywood celebrities started voicing their own doubts as well. Actor and comedian Seth McFarland took to Twitter on Tuesday night to explain why he believes Winfrey shouldn’t be the next president.
He spoke candidly:
Oprah is beyond doubt a magnificent orator. But the idea of a reality show star running against a talk show host is troublingly dystopian. We don’t want to create a world where dedicated public service careers become undesirable and impractical in the face of raw celebrity.
The tweet received over 250,000 likes.
Then, the day following McFarland’s tweet, pop singer Seal spoke his mind as well.Seal/Instagram
He posted two photos of Winfrey with longtime friend and disgraced Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein, with the caption:
When you have been part of the problem for decades but suddenly they all think you are the solution.
Seal added in the caption:
Oh, I forgot, that’s right…you’d heard the rumors but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young starry-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad. #SanctimoniousHollywood
