Oprah Winfrey Forced to Deny She Was Caught Up in Celebrity Sex Trafficking Arrests

Summit News

Oprah Winfrey has been forced to deny claims she was caught up in a global sweep of arrests for sex trafficking after she trended number one on Twitter.

Rumors began to swirl on social media that Winfrey’s house in Boca Raton, Florida, had been raided by the authorities.

These were sparked by a Facebook post that claimed the property had been seized and was being “excavated.”

“Just got a phone call that my name is trending. And being trolled for some awful FAKE thing. It’s NOT TRUE,” tweeted Oprah. “Haven’t been raided, or arrested. Just sanitising and self distancing with the rest of the world. Stay safe everybody.”

The fake news story also appears to have been amplified by a post which claims that the coronavirus pandemic is merely a cover for a global arrest sweep of celebrities, politicians, major CEOs and bankers.

The post asserts that the arrests were triggered after Harvey Weinstein “agreed to a deal in exchange for his testimony against hundreds of top Hollywood celebrities and their involvement in the drug business, pedophilia and child trafficking.”

While it makes for a conspiracy theory that could be made into an interesting movie, none of it is true.
