While the audience was in shock, videos of her fall went viral on the social media platforms of which Oprah is not unaware. Thanking her 18 million followers on Instagram for their wishes, Oprah hilariously acknowledged her “meme” self. Sharing a picture from her reading area, Oprah was seen sitting in an armchair, reading the Sunday newspaper with her injured leg propped up on the table and iced. Smiling at the camera, Oprah captioned the picture, “Sunday Reading and icing. Thank you all for your kind wishes. Yes I slipped on stage and I’m now a meme. But so grateful to be only a little sore.

It so happened that Oprah stumbled while talking about wellness and balance but sat up straight only to joke, “Wong shoes.” Taking off her footwear, Oprah reportedly remained barefoot and even took a dig at her ironic fall in an interview backstage. The media mogul eventually slipped again on sliver sneakers which made her comment, “I thought this was a great day in spite of the fall, which now becomes a meme, I know.”
For the uninitiated, Oprah Winfrey is one of the most inspirational women who have been influencing the lives of millions of people, especially through her talk show. Born on January 29, 1954, Oprah is one of the most soft-hearted philanthropist and holds the potential to bring anyone to tears with her inspirational story. Her talk show has been one of the most prestigious shows for all the artists and her work inspires millions of young minds.
In January 2018, Oprah became the first African American recipient of the Golden Globes Awards. While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement, Oprah had delivered a very powerful speech that moved everyone. “For too long women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up!” she had said. Her moment not only got a standing ovation but also moved many audiences to tears.
She concluded by saying: “So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “me too” again.”
