Oprah Winfrey talked about having “your truth” on Sunday during her acceptance speech when she won a lifetime achievement award in the 75th Golden Globe Awards, which prompted The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro to quickly correct her inaccurate statement.
“I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this: What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have,” Winfrey said halfway through her speech.
Shapiro responded: “There is no such thing as ‘your truth.’ There is the truth and your opinion.”
Oprah used her opportunity to speak to condemn Hollywood’s sexual predators but failed to name any of them, including Harvey Weinstein, whose alleged behavior launched the #MeToo movement.
“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power to those men, but their time is up,” Winfrey said. “Their time is up!”
