Oprah Retakes Stand on Domestic Violence

11/5/2009 5:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah Winfrey has finally decided alleged woman-abuser BeBe Winans isn't welcome on her show anymore -- at least for now -- after the famous gospel singer's ex-wife raised hell and implied Oprah was a moral hypocrite.


It's all because Oprah took a hard moral stance on Chris Brown, refusing to have the singer on her show after Chris beat Rihanna.

But last Friday, when O allowed BeBe onto the show, the woman he's accused of attacking told TMZ she was "hurt' by Oprah's decision because their case is still pending. Now, it seems Oprah got the message.

TMZ spoke with a rep from Oprah's show, who told us "BeBe will not be appearing on the 'Oprah' show until his legal matters are resolved in court."

Winans was charged with domestic assault last winter, he's due back in court in January.

You know Opa and her people for some reason they don't do background check. Also it's not the first time that she and her people have screwed up.

If it is true about BeBe then Oprah seems to have a double standard. Oprah wields a little too much power and influence for my taste.

This proves Oprah is a hypocrite and more concerned about ratings than being REAL. Of course BeBe won't be appearing. He has no reason to because the new album has already been promoted.

Oprah is full of malarkey!

It's pretty flexible of Oprah to remove him from the show, but it was never a double standard. Bebe is just a weak old man who was only ACCUSED of gently pushing a woman in self defense & there was no injury at all. Chris Brown is a hulking musle bound strong young man who bashed a girls head until she was unconscious & purple. Two totally different situations.

Oprah's cool. All she does is provide light & love into the homes of millions of soccer moms & create thousands of jobs for the American people. Oprah is what America is all about.

My grandmother LOVES Oprah. There's so much negativity in the world that it's great to have a warm nice person like Oprah to watch every afternoon with a blanket & a cup of tea. My grandmother is going to be 100 & Oprah's positive energy keeps her young.

I am black and ashamed of Oprah. Oprah only cares about her ratings. Privately she could have helped this young man turn his life around. Abuse is abuse. You can not pick and choose what sin is worse a sin is a sin.

Did she forgive her family member that violated her?
