Ooops! Oprah Makes An International Faux Paus, Offends Indian Culture’s Eating Habits

Oprah Winfrey recently received some major backlash after making a few insensitive remarks during her televised trip to India for Oprah’s Next Chapter.

In the episode Oprah has her first traditional Indian meal and remarks to her hosts:

‘I heard some Indian people eat with their hands still.’

Perhaps unbeknownst to Oprah is that Indian food is traditionally eaten with the hands. So it came off  more like a insult than mild observation.

In response a popular Indian columnist described Oprah as:

“Myopic, unaware, ignorant and gauche. This was Middle America at its best worst.”

Yikes.

Stay Tuned.
