Oprah Winfrey is firing back at white supremacist group targeting her and Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in robocall voters. According to The Hill, the robocall was funded by TheRoadToPower.com. It was “sent to voters last week after legendary talk-show host stumped for Democratic candidate and knocked on voter’s doors in Georgia.”
In a video Winfrey shared on Instagram, she says, “Jesus don’t like ugly.”
“I heard people were making racist robocalls in my name against Stacey Abrams, who O am 100 percent for, in Georgia.” Winfrey continues, “I just want to say: Jesus don’t like ugly… And we know what to do about that: vote. Tomorrow show up and show out, and vote.”
Anti-Defamation League labeled the group as white supremacist and anti-Semitic. Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum was also targeted.
