Oprah Buys Fan New Phone After Taking Selfie on Cracked Screen

When it comes to Oprah Winfrey, there’s no act of kindness too big or too small.

The media queen’s latest good deed was as simple as buying a college student a new iPhone.

Oprah was leaving Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia where she had just donated $13 million to the school, when she was stopped by two guys – Zachariah and Olufemi, for a selfie.

Oprah can be heard saying “hey, that’s me. That’s me in your cracked phone!”

The interaction, which has been viewed over 2 million times on Twitter, didn’t end there.

Olufemi woke up the next morning to find a message from Oprah’s team asking how they could get a new phone to him.

And sure enough, within a few days, he received a brand new iPhone 11 with a note from Ms Winfrey herself saying: “Dear Olufemi, We can’t have you out here viewing the world thru a cracked screen or a cracked cover. The new camera you’re gonna love for sure!”
