Another good deed!
Oprah Winfrey recently went viral after a video was posted of her making jokes about a Morehouse College student’s cracked iPhone.
Two freshman students Zachariah Smith and Olufemi Yessoufou caught up with the media mogul as she was leaving the 30th anniversary of "The Oprah Winfrey Scholars Program" celebration.
In the 7-second-video you can hear Yessoufou saying, “Hey, Oprah.” “Hey,” she responded, before adding: “That’s me. That’s me in your cracked phone.”

The video was viewed over 2.7 million times and I can bet Yessoufou didn’t expect this to happen next.
To the students surprise, a new an improved iPhone 11 with a phone case arrived a couple weeks later. As if that wasn’t enough, Oprah even included a note, which read, “Dear Olufemi, We can’t have you out here viewing the world thru a cracked screen or a cracked cover.”
See how it all unfolded below!
