On Sunday night, only a few days into the new year, Oprah Winfrey gave a stirring and emotional speech that will surely go down as one of the biggest moments of 2018. While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes, Winfrey schooled the audience in attendance, and at home watching on TV, on everything from race relations in the United States, to the history of women not being believed in cases of sexual assault, to why she hopes to inspire a new generation of women to live in a world free from fear of assault of harassment. The Golden Globes were Oprah’s night and we were just there to sit and watch in awe.

It’s safe to say that just about everyone loved Winfrey’s speech. Celebrities tweeted about it. Golden Globe nominees tweeted about it. We all tweeted about it. Winfrey became a trending topic for the evening and she even made an impact at the White House.

In a surprising move, Ivanka Trump tweeted her praise for Oprah’s speech, calling it “empowering and inspiring.” Including a link to the full speech, Ivanka tweeted “Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP.”


Huh.

To recap, Ivanka of the White House Trumps really liked Oprah Winfrey’s speech about holding men accountable for sexual assault and abuse. Mmmkay.
One thing that wasn’t surprising in this very odd Twitter occurrence were the responses. Many people were upset by Ivanka’s lack of awareness.


Some understandably thought it was a joke.


Actor Alyssa Milano suggested that Ivanka donate to the Time’s Up movement in her father Donald’s name.


One Twitter user noted that Ivanka shouldn’t be responsible for her father’s personal actions, but is responsible for his public actions since she works for him.


And so forth.


Many users tried to point out to Ivanka that she was in fact complicit in her father’s wrongdoings.


Others, like Chrissy Teigen, had less constructive criticism.


Overall, people weren’t impressed. Opinion.
