If you don't have something nice to say about Oprah Winfrey, should you even say anything at all?

TMZ reports that Seal has clarified comments he made Thursday that suggested Winfrey was a hypocrite for delivering a powerful speech about #TimesUp at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday given her friendship with disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein. 

The 54-year-old British singer had posted a meme of Winfrey kissing Weinstein on the cheek earlier that day, which read: “When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution.”

“Oh I forgot, that’s right…..you’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into," Seal captioned the image. "My bad. #SanctimoniousHollywood"

Things got dark reaaaal fast: According to Entertainment Weekly, model Chrissy Teigen eventually hopped in Seal's comments section to write, “Hmm. Let’s just say we’ve all heard things about each other, haven’t we?”

After being bombarded with comments on Instagram, Seal eventually took to Facebook to set some things straight.

“What I re-posted was not an attack on Oprah at all. She just happened to be the person photographed with the pig in the picture," Seal explained — the "pig" being Weinstein, who's been accused of sexual harassment by more than 70 women. "What I re-posted was commentary on the hypocritical and double-standard nature and behavior of Hollywood."

"To those of us who support the #MeToo movement, just know this," he added: "Not one of the women who have sexually abused, not one of the women who have come forward, have received any justice whatsoever."
