Was Oprah Winfrey just sentenced to death, for being an accessory to mass murder in the Maui inferno?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!


Claim : Oprah Winfrey Was Just Sentenced To Death!

On 16 February 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that Oprah Winfrey was just sentenced to death, for being an accessory to mass murder in the Maui inferno!

As usual, the article is long, rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Truth : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Sentenced To Death!

The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Fact #1 : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Sentenced To Death

Let me just start by pointing out that Oprah Winfrey has not been sentenced to death for being an accessory to mass murder in the Maui inferno, or any other reason. In fact, she has not even been arrested or jailed for any reason!

Oprah Winfrey is a mega celebrity, and one of the richest women in the world, with a net worth of $3.5 billion as of May 2023. If she was ever arrested, it would have been international news.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, not even celebrity blogs, have reported that Oprah Winfrey was in any legal trouble, never mind sentenced to death!

We know this for sure because Oprah herself posted about her experience flying to NYC to take part in the photoshoot for the cover of the last issue of British Vogue, on 8 February 2024.

Could she have made it for the photoshoot, if she was supposedly jailed in Guantanamo Bay, before being courtmartialed, and sentenced to death???

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that the US Navy JAG convicted Oprah Winfrey for being an accessory to mass murder in the 2023 Maui fire, and sentenced her to death, is absurd.

The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Oprah Winfrey. The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.

Only in rare exceptions are JAG officers allowed to prosecute civilians. For example, if the civilian committed a crime on a military base, or while working in a foreign country and the local laws allow it. They can also prosecute civilians with special authority from the President, or Congress.

Fact #3 : Office of Military Commissions Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that the Office of Military Commissions convicted Oprah Winfrey for being an accessory to mass murder in the 2023 Maui fire, and sentenced her to death, is also ridiculous.

The Office of Military Commissions conducts military tribunals to try individuals for their unlawful conduct in war. The 2023 Maui fire was a natural disaster, and not a war. The Office of Military Commissions would not be involved in conducting any military tribunals over the Maui inferno.

Fact #4 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a fake news website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

That disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news to go viral, and generate money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I debunked earlier:
