Oprah Winfrey says she’s icing her foot after taking a tumble during tour stop


ABC/Randy HolmesOprah Winfrey is on the mend after taking a fall during her 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus tour on Sunday.

Speaking to the crowd during her Los Angeles stop of her tour about maintaining one’s balance in life, Winfrey suddenly lost her footing and tumbled to the floor.

In the now viral clip of the incident, the crowd is heard gasping as Winfrey falls over. 

“Wrong shoes,” she joked after getting back on her feet.

After her fall, the media mogul posted a video of her and special guest Jennifer Lopez backstage.

“LA: You were lit! In spite of my fall (which now becomes a meme), you brought me UP with your energy,” Oprah wrote, captioning the video. “Now I’m headed home to ice my knee and ankle.”

In an Instagram Story, Winfrey said she wasn’t even slightly embarrassed by the now viral tumble.

“I thought this was a great day in spite of the fall,” she said. “But I picked myself up. I don’t know if it was something on the floor, or my foot twisted, or what. I had the indication I was going to fall before. And then, it just is what it is. It was a great, great day.”

Later that day, Winfrey gave fans an update on her recovery.

“Sunday reading and icing,” she wrote, captioning a photo of herself relaxing and elevating her leg while holding newspaper.

“Thank you all for your kind wishes. Yes I slipped on the stage and now I’m a meme,” she continued. “But so grateful to only be a little sore. Turning the day into @michelleobama calls #selfcareSunday.”
