First Daughter Ivanka, took to Twitter to show her support for Oprah Winfrey following the respected TV personality’s presidential speech at the Golden Globes. After the event, an overwhelming number of people started encouraging the woman to run for president in 2020. Now that it looks like Ivanka is also on board, users are super confused.
Considering that Oprah’s speech focused mainly on the #MeToo movement and that Ivanka’s father and president of the United States is notoriously involved in many sexual harassment scandals, we understand why people would shake their heads at the perceived hypocrisy of his favorite offspring.
‘Just saw @Oprah’s empowering and inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes. Let’s all come together, women and men, and say #TIMESUP,’ she tweeted, sending the online world into a frenzy.
Thousands took to social media to praise Oprah for her impactful and well-needed speech on the movement that took Hollywood by storm these past few months, but when Ivanka did the same, she was majorly criticized for it.
With Trump being accused of sexual harassment by a number of women, her tweet seemed out of place.
People started slamming her for showing support for the #TimesUp movement without also addressing at least some of the allegations against her dad.
Chrissy Teigen was one of them as she wrote: ‘Ew go away.’
‘You do not get to be a part of this,’ one user also tweeted at Ivanka.
‘Um… Ivanka… you do know Oprah was criticizing your dad, right?’ another wrote.
‘This is the most hypocritical and clueless statement in her regrettable time in the White House. Your father has a trail of victims and supported Roy Moore, Ivanka. YOU are part of the problem. #complicit’ others seemed to agree.
Oprah received a standing ovation for her words at the Golden Globes: ‘For too long, women haven’t been heard or believed if they dared speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time’s up. Their time is up.’
