Oprah Winfrey has changed millions of lives, and yet someone on the internet decided to throw shade by saying she should've paid for Colorado students' debts. Of course, the philanthropist had the perfect clapback to her critic.

Oprah Winfrey gave the commencement speech for Class of 2019 at the Colorado College. The small liberal arts college had 590 undergraduates, and Winfrey made sure to leave a small impact on them.

During her speech, she quoted activist Angela Davis, who once said:

"You have to act as if it were possible to radically change the world. And you have to do it all the time."

One Step at a Time

While Winfrey is known for doing extravagant things for people, she didn't necessarily pay off the graduates' pending student loans. Instead, she gave each of them a copy of her book, "The Path Made Clear."

However, this did not seem enough for an internet user, who suggested she should have paid off their student debts.

Seeing this comment, Oprah decided to respond by saying she's paid for more than 13 million dollars in scholarships, and have put more than 400 men through Morehouse College.

If that's not making an impact, then we don't know what is.

Oprah's Stealing Scandal

Last year, Oprah faced a legal battle after she allegedly stole ideas for her drama series, "Greenleaf," from a pastor and screenwriter.

The hit show "Greenleaf," which averages 2,000,000 viewers per episode, allegedly stole its plot and cast from "Justice & Glory," which is another person's work entirely.

The original show's screenwriter, Shannan Lynette Wynn, claims that she and her pastor co-writer pitched the show to Oprah's "OWN" team in 2014, but after being lured to give more details, they were suddenly cut-off.

A couple of years later, they were surprised to see the same characters and storylines from their pitch.

All of this continues to remain as allegations, as Oprah and her team never spoke up about it.
