Oprah has gone all quiet, mid-campaign. Her official messageboard community and the user-powered blogs at Oprah.com have been closed for ‘maintenance’ for days. Here’s why:
“Let me read you something that was posted on our message board by someone who claims to be a member of a known paedophile network. It said this; He does not forgive, he does not forget, his group has over nine thousand penises, and they are all raping children.” – Oprah Winfrey (19 Sep 2008)
Now that every reference to “over 9000 penises” has been scrubbed from her web space, Oprah probably hopes to return to her campaign with little-to-no mention of her Paedogeddon moment.
Next stop: disappointment and outrage that 4chan/Anon aren’t thinking of the children.
(To be fair to Oprah and her researchers, “It’s over 9000!” is a slightly more obscure meme than ‘All Your Base’. But still…)
