Oprah Winfrey has been called many things in her lifetime, but her “Color Purple” co-star Rae Dawn Chong–famous for being punched by O in the critically acclaimed film– gave her a new title during a Kanye West-like rant on Matty P’s Radio Happy Hour. Dawn Chong attacked Oprah, calling her “enormously insecure”and dissed her dark skin, saying “If you look at the way [Oprah] looks, she looks like 60 years ago she would have been a house keeper luckily. She would have not been a house n**ger she would have been a field n**ger.”
Their (one-sided) beef allegedly occurred back in 1985, when Dawn claims Oprah wasn’t inviting. “I starred in Commando. And she just wasn’t having me. She’s competitive. She didn’t like me. She just wasn’t having me,” she said. “The thing that’s really great about Oprah that you can’t take away from her is that she’s a great brown-noser,” she continued.
Dawn didn’t stop there, she continued to bash the OWN Network entrepreneur: “Imagine being [Oprah]. She has all of the world. All the power in the world… and she only wants something that is only chemical, purely impossible.”
