Rae Dawn Chong RIPS Oprah, Calls Her "Biotch" and "Field N--ger"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Oprah Winfrey's former co-star in The Color Purple, Rae Dawn Chong, is apparently not a big fan. She absolutely tore her a new one in an interview.

Basically, Chong feels that O is basically self-centered fat "biotch" who would have likely been a "field n--gger" back in the slavery days ... seriously.

Makes Terrence Howard's remarks on Oprah's tig ol' bitties seem tame.

Appearing on Matty P's Radio Happy Hour, Chong talked about how her personal relationship with Winfrey went from good to bad (very bad) in a hurry.

Apparently.

Rae Dawn says Oprah was "lovely" on The Color Purple set in '85, but shortly thereafter, when she moved on to Commando, O became "a total biotch."

"I starred in Commando. And she just wasn’t having me. She’s competitive. She didn’t like me," Chong recalls. "She just wasn’t having me."

Rae then ranted about how much she hates Winfrey ... and stooped so low that she even took shots at her appearance and invoked slave imagery:

  • "If you look at the way [Oprah] looks ... 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."
  • "Shes so enormously insecure. If you wanna distill Oprah Winfrey down to like her most basic components. She wants to be beautiful."
  • "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."

At least she did attempt a couple of "compliments" ...

  • "The really great thing about Oprah that you can't take away is that she's a great brown-noser."
  • "No matter how vile she is, you kinda gotta go, 'hello hats off' like, you’ve done an amazing thing you have actually shifted the DNA of the universe."

Maybe Rae Dawn will tell us how she really feels soon.

Most of this is out of line - but Oprah is definitely narcissistic. i can remember when she did her U.S. tour and crashed people's weddings. I am not, and have never been a fan, and I sure wouldn't be happy that she used my wedding to get more attention for herself!....And she didn't get fat by just eating chicken, so bashing the beef industry was ridiculous.

"She just wasn’t having me." This is the only thing Chong said that even resembles a reason for being so angry at Oprah. So, does she really think she is justified in casting such aspersions or impugning Oprah's character because she didn't want to be bothered with her little potty mouthed self after filming the Color Purple? What a pathetic little woman. Smells like jealousy to me. After all, Oprah IS worth 2 billion plus, but Chong hasn't done any significant acting in years, thus making it safe to assume that she is NOT worth anything close to Oprah's earnings nor does she have a hundredth of the fan base. Yep, she jealous!!

WOW...do you think she will get ousted as bad as Paula Deen?? I doubt it. and why?? Because evidently it's OK to call another black person a N***** if you yourself are black. THIS is why our world and the media sucks!!

Here, here!! You've hit the nail on the head with this post. Until black folks step up to help eschew this term in everyday parlance, we can lay no legitimate claim to such righteous indignation when non-blacks spit out this term. Talk to Kanye, 50, Snoop and a whole host of others (actors and comedians included) who love to pepper their lyrics and routines with the term before you call Paula a racist. When you point an accusing finger at someone, don't forget that there are three pointing right back at 'cha!!

What career does Rae Dawn Chong have for anyone to destroy? haha... don't worry, I'll wait.

I wouldn't say she's calling Oprah a "field n*****." She's referring to the crappy ways blacks were treated when slavery was still accepted. She's pointing out how ugly slavery was. Not Oprah.

Nope, your wrong. Oprah would have been a field nigger if we were still doing slavery.

No, she's not calling O' a field nigger because slavery no longer exists in the American South. But, she IS disparaging Oprah's looks by screaming at the top of her demented, has-been lungs that she would not be deserving of a place in the big house, but rather, she would, according to her skin tone and her body shape, only allowed to do work in the fields. This rant is being reported without a shred of context, but I can't imagine any circumstance under which this juvenile attack would be appropriate, and the lack of contextual details makes Chong come off like a bitter little shrew. Too bad for her!

Rae Dawn Chong is far more talented than Oprah. Oprah just brown noses better and has been doing it longer

Rae dawn sucks. Absolutely CRAZY AWFUL ACTRESS! Hope the bitch never works again....

The comments regarding her "slave" looks are obviously about Oprah having darker a skin tone than she does. This is an offshoot of racism that a lot of African Americans are guilty of. I've heard it myself many times. Someone will point to the skin on thier forearm and say "she dark" in a disparaging way.
