Famous American talk show host and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey has recently managed to get a fair share of attention online as she appeared to lose her balance and fall while onstage.
According to Page Six, this unfortunate incident occurred at the Forum arena in Los Angeles on 29 February, which Oprah visited as part of her 2020 Vision speaking tour to “discuss wellness and living a balanced life”.

Many social media users appeared keen to crack jokes rather than to express sympathy for the lady.

Some even quipped that Michael Jackson might’ve been involved, or that perhaps Oprah was trying to emulate him.
So they said Michael Jackson was responsible for Oprah’s fall. Here is video evidence 🤣pic.twitter.com/NQAfOvkdyE— ThrillOfBlack (@ThrillBlack) March 1, 2020

And there were also those who speculated that Oprah looked like she was "used to it".
I watched the video. Clearly she appears to have some kind of jerking like a seizure or something. She then blamed her shoes. That looked like something she cannot control, but her lack of seeming alarmed, makes me think, she's used to it. It wasn't the first time.— Brian Johnson (@BriankJohnson12) March 1, 2020
