Oprah Winfrey: 'I can't stand people who use N-word'

Oprah Winfrey has revealed in a new interview that she "can't stand" people who use the N-word. The comment comes in the wake of actress Rae Dawn Chong's radio tirade against Winfrey, in which she referred to the Emmy winner as "vile", a "brown noser" and a "field-n***er". Chong, who starred in The Color Purple alongside Winfrey, later released an apology video, insisting that the derogatory remark was meant as a compliment. Speaking to Parade magazine along with Forest Whitaker for their new movie The Butler, Winfrey subtly shared her feelings on Chong's language. She said: "You cannot be my friend and use that word around me."' Winfrey admitted that she is uncomfortable with all races using the word, adding: "It shows my age, but I feel strongly about [the N-word]… I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree."
