Oprah Speaks Out!

Posted on: March 31, 2009

After reports surfaced of several students getting suspended for sexually harassing their schoolmates in Oprah Winfrey‘s boarding school in South Africa, it was only a matter of time before the Big O released her own comments.

And now Oprah has released a statement regarding the incident at The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy.

Winfrey says:

“I’m disappointed that several of our students chose to disregard the school’s rules. It’s disheartening when any student has to be suspended or expelled and it’s a process that involves serious review and consideration. We insist on maintaining a campus environment that commands mutual respect, fosters academic excellence and encourages learners to fulfill their best potential. Indiscretions resulting in disciplinary action are common in schools all over the world. Unfortunately, because of my name these common infractions place the Academy in the media spotlight.”

We’re glad she spoke out and all, but when are they going to release what happened?

The South African newspapers have been reporting different rumors, though Winfrey and her camp have yet to officially release the cause for the suspension/expulsion of the students.
