Although her show may no longer be on the air, one of Oprah’s most memorable moments has resurfaced, thanks to Twitter, and we couldn’t be happier.
Back in 2006, a white woman named Anna Ginsberg won the million dollar Pillsbury Bake-Off with her chicken and spinach stuffing recipe. To add salt to wound (which maybe wouldn't be such a bad thing for Anna), the recipe was supposed to be a play on chicken and waffles by using frozen waffles for the stuffing. The dish was ultimately deemed great enough to land Ginsberg a whole segment on Oprah’s show
When it came time for Oprah to taste the chicken, she was shocked to learn that like many of her white brethren, Ginsberg cooked the chicken without one crucial element: seasoning.
“Did we add salt and pepper?” Oprah asked, trying to give Ginsberg an obvious out.
“I think we need salt and pepper,” she added.
“No, there’s no salt and pepper in it,” Anna meekly replied, “But you can add it yourself.”
Yes, Anna, we know you can always add salt and pepper to taste, but why on Earth did you come on to the Oprah Show and think you could serve the queen of television some boiled chicken.
Of course, Oprah was extremely kind and eventually told Ginsberg her chicken was delicious, but not everyone on Twitter can take the high road quite like Ms. Winfrey.
If there’s one thing this clip made us all realize, it’s that we want to approach 2019 with the confidence of a white woman serving Oprah unseasoned chicken breast.
