Winfrey pauses, then suggests “a beautiful red jewelry box.” When the stranger notes that such a gift is “too expensive” for him, the former talk show host responds, “No it’s not. It’s really not. It’s like a hundred and some dollars.”
The questioner presses Winfrey, asking a second time for a gift idea “a little lower in my price budget.” The host appears shocked, saying, “Lower than $100?”
After the video surfaced, some reacted with shock that Winfrey thought $100 should be in a person’s price range, while others noted that for the billionaire, $100 bucks probably wasn’t a lot.
