Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram to slam Seal after he accused Oprah Winfrey of being aware of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct.

"Oh I forgot, that's right....", Seal added in the caption, "you'd heard the [rumors] but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young [starry]-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into".

The Instagram post comes on the heels of Winfrey's speech on Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards where she became the first black woman to receive the Cecil Mille Award, an honorary award presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.

How far does Winfrey's connection to Weinstein allegedly go?

In the video he said: 'Let me start by saying I have an enormous amount of respect for everything Oprah has contributed in her life. Weinstein has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex.

Winfrey concluded her speech by mentioning the #MeToo movement. Actress and comedian Roseanne Barr told reporters she thought she would make a better president than Winfrey during a press tour for the upcoming reboot of her sitcom, "Roseanne".
