Open mouth insert foot.
My, my, good morning America. I started the day being outed for referencing Oprah in a historical fashion her success and it was dissected and published on TMZ site. I cannot and will not take back anything said in my interview but my frankness will cause pain and for lazy people out there who cannot investigate and listen to my entire interview and who just want to hate me. There is nothing I can do... I fancy I have a big heart but apparently I have a big mouth too. Someone said I looked like hell and was jealous and hateful to Oprah and I say "Okay, Yes" that is just as true. Still some things I suppose are best left unsaid does it matter that it happened to me and I wanted to get my side out? She is a billionaire and me not so much. I am in a bit of shock honestly not sure how to respond and I want to respond. I yelled at TMZ because it was a witch burning and at my expense because they did not release the entire interview instead cut and pasted. Here it is; https://www.transferbigfiles.com/add683e3-05fc-4333-ac00-bd7c0be40a42?rid=ZE2Ral76OKGntt5mTPfolg2 My body mind and soul are sad and exhausted with the tragedy of Trayvon Martin and all race relations. My reference to Oprah was to highlight her success against out pitiful history. My bad for being so bold and obviously hurtful in my stupid word choices. I stand by my story just sad it was used this way... TMZ really? To all the haters have a listen and then judge.
