Oprah Winfrey Responds to That Viral Clip of Her Eating Chicken with No Salt & Pepper

Oprah Winfrey is responding to an old clip from her former talk show where she ate a piece of chicken that didn’t have any salt or pepper on it.

Buzzfeed writer Spencer Althouse posted a video of the old clip, writing, “I often think about the time Oprah did a cooking segment with a woman whose chicken recipe won $1 million, and Oprah‘s jaw dropped when she tasted it and realized the lady didn’t even add seasoning.”

Now, Oprah has issued a response to the clip that has since gone viral due to Spencer‘s tweet!

“I always wanted anybody who came on the show, no matter what they did, to have a good experience. And I also wanted to stay in my own truth while allowing them to have that good experience. I was having a moment of trying to decide, Do I want her to have a great time? What is my real moment of truth? Because the truth for me was that I am used to having salt and pepper on my chicken. That’s just the truth. That’s what I was thinking: this chicken needs some salt and pepper,” Oprah said.

    you sound some kind of ignorant. “Black” plus who doesn’t eat chicken…the woman who cooked it was white and won a million dollars. So please keep that to yourself please.
