QAnon Oprah posts (also called “drops” or crumbs”) are few and far between as of March 18, 2020, when a massive Internet controversy blew up over rumors that Oprah Winfrey had been arrested, that her home had been raided, or that she was going to jail.

In fact, QAnon (also called Q) has only mentioned Oprah once, in nearly 4,000 posts. See 68+ QAnon research resources for critical thinkers to help you study QAnon in more detail.

Here’s a breakdown of that Oprah QAnon post (read QAnon posts).

QAnon Oprah Post: August 15, 2018 - "You ALL get to go to jail"

In QAnon post 1888 (using a chronological indexing system for ordering QAnon posts), on August 15, 2018, Q said:

>>Oprah Show
You get to go to JAIL.
You get to go to JAIL.
You get to go to JAIL.
You get to go to JAIL.
You ALL get to go to JAIL.

Q said the above in reply to an anon (an anonymous 8chan forum poster) who had said:

GMAIL Drafts have them terrified, Q-Team!
You sent shock waves to the netherworld!!

Before referring to Oprah Winfrey, QAnon then said:

Did they ask Combetta for advice?
These people are stupid.

Q then shared a US News link.

QAnon Oprah Controversy: March 17-18, 2020

On March 17, 2020, several Oprah-related hashtags and phrases went viral on Twitter to the point of reaching trending status in the United States. These included #opraharrested, WTF Oprah, Oprah trafficking, and other related words suggesting that Oprah may have been arrested, secretly jailed, or had her house raided by law enforcement officials.

The rumors spread quickly and on March 18, the Washington Post published a piece titled in part, “Oprah Winfrey debunks bizarre QAnon conspiracy theory spreading across the Internet.”

Several other media outlets also used the controversy to blame QAnon and Q followers for spreading fake news about Oprah, the publicly beloved billionaire mega-celeb. Examples:

Oprah QAnon: 10 Takeaway Lessons and Insights from a QAnon Researcher

  1. I’m no expert on Oprah. I know she’s mega-wealthy and has spent time around many other celebrities who’ve gotten into serious legal trouble, including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, John of God and others. But there was no factual basis for these rumors, and I personally saw many QAnon supporters on Twitter lending them credence in a highly irresponsible manner.
  2. The mainstream media (MSM) is even more guilty than Q followers of spreading fake news and lies. There is *no* evidence to suggest that QAnon started these false rumors about Oprah. As I shared above, QAnon has only ever even mentioned Oprah one time.
  3. In the Q post referenced above (post 1888, August 15, 2018), QAnon didn’t make any specific claims about Oprah Winfrey at all. Q merely appeared to use Oprah’s memorable “you get a car, you get a car, everybody gets a car!” show episode as a way to indicate that at some point, a numbed of bad actors involved in illegal activities against President Donald Trump and the American people would be arrested and sent to jail.
  4. Apophenia is the phenomenon of seeing connections that aren’t there. It’s why we see faces on pieces of toast or in wallpaper patters. Not every pattern means what it may look like at first glance.
  5. Oprah actually tweeted in response to the rumors about her. If she didn’t know about QAnon before, I think it’s likely she knows who QAnon is now.
  6. Every major MSM article about this Oprah conspiracy theory that makes reference to QAnon also doesn’t show you the source I linked to above – the content of the actual and only Q post ever to make any kind of reference to Oprah. Why would that be?
  7. The speed with which the WaPo identified the source of the Oprah arrested rumors as a QAnon Facebook group alarms me. I can’t even find a link in the WaPo article to the Facebook post they claim started the controversy.
  8. I’m extremely concerned that the MSM, or those who own it, are trying to dissuade the public from learning many shocking truths that QAnon has shared since 2017, and that this whole controversy may have been a setup to accuse Q followers of spreading unfounded rumors.
  9. Q followers as a community need to be much more careful in the future about sharing information they’re not sure is true. It’s not a game to suggest that someone is guilty of a serious crime like child sex trafficking. Sources need to be vetted and verified. Before reporting something as fact, you should do all you can to get multiple independent sources that back up your claims. And if you see a rumor with no evidence behind it, you shouldn’t spread it.
  10. Instead, when something like QAnon Oprah rumors start flying (and they will many times in 2020 and beyond), look for their origin. Be wary of possible planted anti-QAnon campaigns whose goal is to discredit the Q movement.

What do you think? Can QAnon predict future events (see QAnon coronavirus information), or access to insider information about Hollywood celebrities and other powerful people?
