The slam shocked the media, but it appears to have left O herself unfazed.
Oprah Winfrey is an expert in conflict resolution – and she’ll need every last bit of those skills to win back former co-star Rae Dawn Chong. The actress starred with Oprah in The Color Purple and apparently, everything was fine while the two were working together.

Chong claimed that Oprah was a self-centered fat "biotch" who would have been a "field n**ger" back in the slave days.”
The Forbes billionaire was slammed by a former colleague.
Chong, who is black herself, unleashed the torrent of anger on "Matty P's Radio Happy Hour" – and she didn’t stop at the slur either. She explained: "I starred in Commando. And she just wasn’t having me. She’s competitive. She didn’t like me. She just wasn’t having me."
