Oprah’s “Satanic” Eyes: Real or Fake?

Oprah’s “Satanic” Eyes: Real or Fake?

A popular YouTube video claims that Oprah Winfrey’s eyes “turned Satanic on live TV” but the crowd was too “stupid to realize it.” Is this video real or fake?

The video is fake.

The video, which has since been removed, showed Winfrey during her 2008 interview with Tom Cruise. At the 12-second mark of the video, Oprah reacted to Cruise’s statement, “I don’t want to disappoint her.” Winfrey’s eyes close, and “satanic” eyes momentarily appear. The crowd and Cruise continue without apparently noticing anything amiss.

The video, despite having over a million views, appeared to have been doctored, perhaps superimposing shots of Winfrey’s eyes both closed and opened to achieve this effect. Take a look at the unaltered video, at about the 2:20 mark of the video below. You’ll see that Oprah merely closes her eyes, and then opens them while looking upward. No “satanic” eyes are seen.

Below are screen captures at the same moment of the fake and the real videos.



We have a short YouTube video discussing this video, as seen below:

Bottom Line

Oprah Winfrey’s eyes did not “turn Satanic” on live TV during her interview with Tom Cruise. The video has been altered to achieve this effect.

    Hmm. I’m in agreement with you, she’s definitely chock full ol’ nuts.

    However, some of the other things you claim shows your willingness to believe without a doubt that your particular spiritual inclinations are the only ones with validity. And of course, since it is written in the Bible, it MUST be true.

    I won’t even bring up the fact that some of what Christians take as fact are really just their interpretation of the book. Some of them aren’t written in there or implied, even. They are just things that other people practice, and if they aren’t in the Bible, then they must be Satanic in nature.

    Also, “Leviathan”, as far as what’s stated in the bible, has nothing to do with pride. It is described as a sea monster, or dragon. Just like Behemoth is a monstrous land creature. Just wanted to let you know…
