Yet another Oprah controversy!
This time around, the talk show host is under fire by the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project for promoting an anti-wrinkle cream made of human foreskins.
Founder of the group, Glen Callender, argues that O's been a big advocate in the fight against female genital mutiliation, however, when it comes to her own precious beauty, she's willing to slather the SkinMedica product made of foreskins from tiny baby circumcised males all over her face.
"Imagine how Oprah would respond if a skin cream for men went on the market that was made from parts of the genitalia of little girls. That would be an outrage and rightly so."
Well, he does have a point…
Meanwhile, about "a dozen or two dozen people" had their hearts set on protesting O during her Vancouver trip this week. Still no word on how successful their protest turned out.
Oh, and just so you're clear, Callender says:
"We're not an anti-circumcision group. What we are against is circumcision being forced on people without their consent."
There's gotta be a better way to prevent wrinkles, right??
