‘Its not true!’ – Oprah Winfrey says about rumours that she has been arrested for sex trafficking

Oprah Winfrey has been forced to deny rumours that she was arrested at her Florida home on grounds of sex trafficking.

In the early hours of Wednesday, she sent out a tweet to dispel rumours that her home had been raided by law enforcement and that she had been arrested following the arrest of jailed producer, Harvey Weinstein.

She wrote: “Just got a phone call that my name is trending. And being trolled for some awful FAKE thing. It’s NOT TRUE. Haven’t been raided, or arrested. Just sanitizing and self distancing with the rest of the world. Stay safe everybody.”

She shared the tweet only a few hours after rumours began to circulate on social media that she had been arrested as part of a celebrity sex trafficking ring along with other big names.

Since she shared the tweet, mixed reactions have trailed it. Several celebrities including Ava DuVernay have come forward to defend the media mogul, slamming the origins of the tweet and calling it a disgusting rumour.

“Trolls + bots began this disgusting rumor,” she wrote. “Mean-spirited minds kept it going. #Oprah has worked for decades on behalf of others. Given hundreds of millions to individuals + causes in need. Shared her own abuse as a child to help folks heal. Shame on all who participated in this.”

Other members of the public, however, have taken to making light of the whole situation while some are saying that they have known it all along. See some tweets below:
