HARPO Says “NO” to Michael Jackson & Hell No to Chris Brown

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News

Oprah W.

Even though the summer time is Harpo’s off season, she says “I talk about what I want to talk about.” Oprah does not support people that hurt children and especially men that beat on women. Since that’s the case she feels she has no reason to speak on MJ’s death and Chris Brown.

According to Oprah sources, they give a full explanation on why the talk show host is saying NO…

Oprah’s got some balls! After speaking with one of my good friends that works with her, they told me as of now she has not and WILL NOT be promoting Michael Jackson because of the past child molestation charges brought against him. I was telling them that MJ was the King of Pop and they went on to say: “Cool, but we all know that he also had other things going on … and people tend to forget the things that matter.”

According to my source, Oprah “does not cover people who hurt children” and said “why give them shine on our show, we never have and never will.”

They also told me that Chris Brown’s people had been trying to do an interview but as of now, Oprah isn’t willing to do that either!

“It’s not about the interview, it’s about the lives that we touch,” my source told me. “Every day millions of people watch our show, white and black, so whatever story we decide to cover, we have to make sure that it is only good energy…”

And we all know how Oprah feels about Chris Brown. Not even a week after the Rihanna incident went down, she was on her show basically speaking to Rihanna saying “If he hits you once, he will do it again.” But as for the MJ situation? All I can say is wow… Oprah has some guts. And her ratings are dropping too!

    wow I really hope oprah did not say that about MJ or think that from my stand point he was never convicted of any crime as for Chris brown who cares.

  • SAgirl

    MJ doesnt need Oprah to do a show about him, he’s already a mega legend. F*%k Oprah!

  • Slide Like A Fresh Pair of Gators

    It’s Oprah’s Show and she can do whatever she wants to do…

    That’s the beauty of being the Boss & Owner…

  • kelis

    MJ did not touch those children. He was acquitted… But its her show.

  • toby

    didn’t she have him on her show after the first allegation when he was Married to Lisa Marie?

  • Nisha

    She interviewed him before so why not now? I don’t believe this article.

  • Shay

    Do we not live in America anymore? Mike had his day in court and was proven innocent…SMH @ Oprah



  • mzsweetface

    Why would she decide not speak on MJ? She interviewed him years ago. I wonder what happened to make her think he isn’t worthy.

  • SCSunshine

    Oprah can have whomever she likes on her show and not because she has money and power, but because it is HER show!

    She has personal reasons for feeling the way she does about alleged child molesters and abusers so it is all relative to her perspective. I find that many people go hard at Oprah, but do not comment about Bill O’Reilly (sp?) and Rush Limbaugh about their choice of topics. Also, people seem to talk about what Oprah “ought” to do for “US”, but many of “US” don’t support her. I believe she is a great humanitarian and is proud to who she is (Black). She’s just like the majority of us-proud, but just waiting for the rest of us to be proud too and not just expect things and wait for others to validate us.

    Oprah is loosing cool points with me on the MJ piece! Doesn’t she know everyone was waiting for her to do a segment on Michael after he died – what better way to get your ratings up….Get it 2gether Oprah

  • star

    I dont believe this story at all. Oprah never ever said anything bad about chris brown. She said that people need to send him love and that people often dont know they need help unless people tell them. Chris Brown does not have alot going that he cold full an entire hour. She would have to be doing another abuse show or something. and I’m sure she would applaud the fact that he took responsibility. As for MJ, what could she possibly do about that? drug users and Oprah doesent really do shows like that. She could try to have the entire family there plus the children but that would be much later in the year.

  • Boo

    This is hearsay, the post states “some one who works with her”, that could be me! Oprah had him on before w the allegation, so why not now! this is so stupid to me…you guys really need to stop hating and start hoping for a swag like Oprah’s…Also, I don’t believe she would deny Chris Brown, bc at the end of the day…we only truly have speculations and grainy photos of that “supposed” domestic despute. We never really heard from Chris or Rihanna until his apology…neither of them have discussed their accounts of what happened.

  • Rachel

    Didnt her show recieve the highest ratings ever back in 1993 when he was interviewd on her show?
    What a hypocrite!!!!!!!


    She’s a BOSS!! She said : “I talk about what I want…” She got it right again. Just like she got it right when she supported Obama when everbody was riding for Hilary

  • false

    This isnt true… Oprah had MJ on the show when the first charges came out years ago. This is a fake story people. chill

  • Denise

    I am GLAD that Oprah’s ratings are dropping. I can see right through her ass.

  • Ashlei

    But hopefully it aint true fa her sake tho. Or it’sz gone be some MJ fansz ready ta burn her at the stake..

  • Whoa!

    That’s how you handle things when you’re the boss. Oprah doesn’t have to do anything she doesn’t want to – in light of her own sexual abuse, its not surprising that she doesn’t want to paint this “perfectly” normal picture of MJ considering his known past involving kids. She’s just bold and honest enough to say it out loud when everyone else was just thinking it.

  • ascap_iz_a_must

    Amazing how time and money will change people…I mean its cool to change but when u have issues yourself u cant ‘go’ on another person for having issues as well. I mean HARPO You where a PIPE HEAD !!! I guess now that u kicked the glass now u are established. Therefore you won’t interview whitney houston ? Get off your high horse HARPO because the people who put you in the place you are today, can barely relate to you… [If his is True LMAO]

  • bamabywayatl

    I do not believe that Oprah said that. She has had abusers, convicted child molestors, rapist, etc on her show. I don’t know why Chris Brown would want to go on her show. He needs to just go on with his life.

  • Sharie

    I’m getting tired of self-righteous Oprah. The job of a news reporter is to inform people. She tries to push her own morals & values instead of letting the people decide. I still think she is a good person though.
