Oprah Winfrey left in shock after fan says that $100 is a lot of money

The queen of talk shows isn't often taken aback, but one fan managed to surprise her

After over thirty years of interviewing celebrities and getting them to confess their most personal secrets, you would think that Oprah Winfrey would be hard to shock.

But one fan managed to do just that in a viral TikTok video as he was begging the talk show tycoon to give him some Christmas gift inspirations.

The video, which has gained more than 800,000 views, shows a fan asking the 68-year-old for ideas on what to buy his mom, who is apparently in poor health.

Oprah first suggests that the cameraman buy a jewelry box that she featured on her show, before the tight pocketed fan insisted that it would be too expensive for him.

When Oprah, who has a net worth of $2.5 billion, insisted that it was 'only like $100', the unseen fan insists that he needs something cheaper for his 'price budget'.

Seemingly surprised that he would find $100 to be too steep, the American philanthropist is forced to think on her feet for a back-up present.

But thankfully, the queen of daytime was manage to come up with a sentimental prezzie on the spot.

$100 clearly isn't much to Oprah Winfrey!

Oprah said: "You do a list of your top ten reasons why you love her, and you make a beautiful card, and it's your top ten."

TikTok users were left divided over the exchange, as some blasted the prolific interviewer as being 'out of touch'.

One wrote: "She said 'Oh You Poor? I have a better gift for you'."

Someone else commented: "The judgement when he said $100 was too expensive," whilst another said: "A billionaire doesn't understand how it is for the rest of us."

However, many people rushed to Oprah's defence and insisted that she had good intentions.

One user commented: "Oprah is a billionaire but she gave a gift suggestion that's $100...but y'all saying she's out of touch."

A fellow supporter wrote: "Bless her heart, she was trying to help. I love both her suggestions. There was no judgement in her tone or reaction. Love her sentimental gift idea."

Before she became a global sensation, Oprah had a humble upbringing in Mississippi with her grandmother and was so poor, she wore dresses made out of potato sacks to schools.

But once her talk show took off in 1986, Oprah became a household name and has interviewed everybody from Michael Jackson to former US president Barack Obama.

In recent years, Oprah found herself in the headlines after she interviewed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry following their departure from the royal family. Their interview received more than 12 million views when it aired on ITV in March 2021.
