Considering #thesetryingtimes (which have quickly morphed into #theseuncertaintimes), it’s hard to know what to believe anymore. Between the conspiracy theories, hoaxes, everything that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth, and the truth— it seems like nothing, and anything, is possible. That’s why when you see Oprah Winfrey trending on Twitter, you might easily believe that she’d tested positive for coronavirus, or that she somehow bought her way onto the democratic ticket and is now running for president, or even that a sex tape featuring her and Gayle King had surfaced. But to hear that Oprah’s house was raided and she’s been arrested for child sex trafficking? Come the fuck on. But also, WHAT?! But mostly, come the fuck on. Obviously that didn’t happen, but enough people believed and/or spread this story, that Oprah had to walk the three miles from her sitting room to her foyer to tweet out a denial.
According to TMZ, the story that Oprah has been arrested in a child sex-trafficking sting, is a popular QAnon conspiracy theory.
Oprah Winfrey got trolled by some idiots pushing a bizarre QAnon conspiracy theory, claiming she was arrested in a global sex trafficking ring, and sadly … she was forced to debunk it herself when her name began trending on Twitter.
Oprah responded to the nonsense after her name and the bogus story — which claims, among other things, that coronavirus is a hoax created to conceal a global drug and child trafficking ring among celebrities — began trending late Tuesday night.
According to Snopes, the Oprah story is part of a larger conspiracy theory which also implicates Tom Hanks and Ellen DeGeneres and posits that the coronavirus is “being used to implement a ‘mandatory vaccination program’ and cover up” their arrests. Here’s Oprah’s response. Even this morning, #opraharrested and #OPRAHDIDWHAT are still trending on Twitter.
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.🙏🏾
