Suspicious video sent to Oprah

Note to aspiring stars: Don’t freak out Oprah if you would like to work for her.

A representative for Oprah’s OWN network confirmed to CNN that the show received a "suspicious" video which they forwarded to authorities.

“ received a suspicious video submission for 'Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star,' a new series premiering on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network in January 2011,” said a statement from the company. “OWN’s protocol and online safeguards rejected the video, and the proper authorities were notified.”

The rep from the network did not reveal whether local or federal authorities had been contacted.

AOL News reports that law enforcement sources said the video was of a man who appeared to be making threatening remarks while in possession of a Mac 10 machine gun.

According to the AOL report, when the man was interviewed by police he was determined not to be a threat. The man said he was an actor.

    What people do for attention these days. This topic alone should be a show. I am sure Oprah selects a person of wisdom and the new show serves humanity at even a deeper level than the OPRAH show and puts to shame the reality shows and hype which cause more of these "attention mongers" having no sense of purpose to a close in our history.

      And you feel the need to say this, why? Troll, go away and try reading a book or learning something of consequence. I may not be an Oprah fan, but what you said is stupid.

      You truly needed to say that? Now, before you start a riot, get off the internet and actually keep your mouth shut unless you have something nice to say. No one likes a troll. I might not be an Oprah fan, but that gives you no rights to call Oprah fat.
