Is there a crack in the #BlackLivesMatters movement? Are they eating their own?
It seems Oprah Winfrey has angered online social media activists again with her comments in a People magazine interview looking for a leader from today’s protests. Supporters are not happy that Oprah didn’t recognize them as the leaders.
Double facepalm!!! No, Oprah, no!! RT Oprah’s waiting for leadership to emerge from protests http://t.co/F3SzjpqVqy via @pagesix

I love @Oprah. Was an Oprah Scholar @Morehouse. Her quote suggests 1 thing… All she learned about Ferguson came from the nightly news.

So does @Oprah expect someone to raise their hand at Protest when they ask “who is your leader”? That messiah style of leadership is not us

If @oprah doesn’t see ‘leadership’ in Ferguson, it’s cuz she’s not really looking. It’s grass-roots – she has to do work to see the teams

I hope someone close to Oprah can pull her aside and let her know there’s more to the movement than what she reads in MSM. So much more.

Glad to see we are collectively on a put up or shut up @Oprah campaign. I’ve been calling for this for months now

Once again a Black ‘celebrity’ shows just how out of touch they are. So, while @oprah searches for an outdated leadership model, #weworkin.

@ShaunKing @Oprah is old media – she built something amazing using old media…but this is shows an ignorance of where it’s at now.

@ShaunKing @Oprah do your homework so you can respond with intelligence, you’ve been blind sided by the media… @Morehouse
