Tommy Chong

My Daughter Was Right

Oprah Would Have Been a Field N-Word

7/25/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

072413_tommy_chong_launchTommy Chong is defending his daughter Rae Dawn -- telling TMZ she was just being honest when she said Oprah would have been a "field" N-word back in the slave days ... because that's just the way things were.

"If you think of what [Rae] said, she said back in the day Oprah would be working in the field because she's not that beautiful  ... whereas if you're beautiful, you're part of the master's bedroom."

Tommy continues, "Knowing Oprah, she would probably read [Rae's comments] and just chuckle and probably agree with Rae Dawn ... she probably would be working in the field."

There's more ... Tommy says he doesn't think Oprah would have STAYED in the field during slave times, because she would have used her "charm and intelligence" to become a "house lady."

And even though Rae called Oprah fat and ugly and a "brown-noser" ... Tommy still thinks there's a chance Rae and O could work together again in the future.

Dude, how HIGH are you??

My only problem with Oprah is that she helped bring the most race-baiting divisive president in history into office.

Opera is an enabler to Lindsay Lohan. Both are desperate to stay relevant and O needs her ratings.
Lindsay needs to hit rock bottom and be broke for awhile not be rewarded with another pay check for the mediocre acting she will do pretending to be sober while drinking her water bottle filled with Grey Goose. I wont be watching this mess of fiction she calls an interview.

We don't use the n word in my family. If others want to use it then that's their choice. But it sure does say a lot about someone.

Her dad is cool and he doesn't look Chinese. He is right about judging people also. He got that out of the Bible. That is what the Bible says, we are not to judge others because then we will have people judging us.


There is a lot of judging going on all over. I think he is right that Oprah has more important things to worry about than a comment from his daughter. I pretty much agree with what he said.

You know what Tommy, whatever your daughter thinks she should keep it to herself. We barely know who she is but we know she is an idiot. Stop talking.

Despite Tommy's explanation for his daughter, her comments were still stupid and unnecessary. Seriously! Talking about what kind of slave someone would be in the same conversation where you claim there was a break in the friendship after you got a role in Commando simply looks like she was just making jabs at Oprah over some b.s. from the 80s, not giving a history lesson (as if the world needed to know what kind of slave Oprah may have been).

Anyway, I highly doubt Oprah auditioned for Commando! An action flick? Please!

Oh now I get it. Rae Dawn wishes she and O were born in slavery days so she could finally one up O due to her mixed race because she can't do it with her brain in the current era. That would only be as a result of her mixed race. Because quite frankly Rae Dawn has never been a good looking girl.

Wow, I missed the good old days by 150 years. Imagine, picking the women you want for your bedroom without all the hassle of dating.

Exactly, no one woulda paid good money for Oprah only to have her in the house knocking over and breaking things with that fat ass of hers.


Yes, Rae Dawn and Oprah would be a good fit and hope to see them working together in the near future.
