In an upcoming interview with Dr. Oz previewed on Page Six, Oprah Winfrey says that watching jurors deliver a guilty verdict to Derek Chauvin was emotional.
She said: “I watched the verdict live — like so many other people around the world. I started to tear up and I asked myself, ‘Where is this emotion coming from?’ And I was having … flashbacks of Emmett Till and all the names that we’ve heard protesters speak for.”
On April 20, the former police officer was convicted of second-degree unintentional murder, third degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. He will be sentenced in June.
