Oprah fired back against a racist robocall impersonating her, and said Monday, "Jesus don't like ugly."
“I heard people were making racist robocalls in my name against Stacey Abrams, who I am one hundred percent for, in Georgia,” Oprah says in an Instagram video. “I just want to say: Jesus don’t like ugly. Mm - mmm! And we know what to do about that: vote. Tomorrow show up and show out, and vote,” she says, singing the last “vote.”
A white supremacist group that targeted Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum with racist robocalls is now targeting Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.
The prerecorded phone message features a voice impersonating Winfrey, who was in Georgia on Thursday stumping for Abrams, and contains racist and anti-Semitic rhetoric.
The robocall went out to Georgia voters, but it is unclear how many received it.
Abrams' Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, strongly denounced the automated call, calling it "absolutely disgusting" in a statement Friday.
