Oprah Winfrey Claps Back At "Hateration" Over "Leaving Neverland" Interview

She also lightened the mood by talking about everyday normal things that most of think she doesn't have to deal with during a "Between the Scenes" segment after the show.

"Leaving Neverland" is directed and produced by British filmmaker Dan Reed and focuses on two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who allege they were sexually abused as children by Michael Jackson. "But you got a lot of hate for doing it". It was a position she had only found herself in once before.

She said "Me and Harry are going to normalize [mental illness] to the point where people are going to be like, 'Hey, I've got a mental illness!' And that's what you want - to call it out to the point that it's no longer a taboo, that people recognize themselves immediately". However, the discomfort has not swayed her from standing by her original choice to do the interview.

"It is about the seduction".

"People call it 'molestation, ' but there is a big seducing that goes on, and the pattern of that seducing".

The 24 year old will face his worldwide teammate Danny Rose in Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final against Tottenham Hotspur. Rose was speaking after he was allegedly subjected to taunts during England's Euro 2020 qualifying win over Montenegro in March.

Winfrey faced harsh criticism over her interviews with Jackson's accusers, joked that she never received so much "hateration" since she did the puppy episode with Ellen DeGeneres, in which DeGeneres came out as gay.

In the end, Oprah Winfrey made a decision to respond to the backlash surrounding Leaving Neverland, as well as try to explain why she stills stands by interview Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

"I have not wavered".

"It's somebody that knows what I like", she exclaims while unwrapping a box containing a bottle of her favourite brand of tequila. And I have never won a case, and the reason I have never won a case is because when you put a girl on the witness stand and she can't remember if it was Thursday or Wednesday, it's automatically discredited.

In the popular insert, Trevor asked Oprah if she ever runs out of cellphone battery, or toilet paper - like us mere mortals.
