Oprah Winfrey is catching heat over a question she asked twin actresses Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen back in 2004. She asked them: “What size are you?” The girls at the time were 17 at the time and Mary-Kate was rumored to be suffering with an eating disorder. Ashley appears particularly taken aback by the question and simply replies: “Size?” Mary-Kate chimes in at this point, saying they have always been petite – at which Oprah replies “Oh, that’s so interesting!” sarcastically. Those re-watching the interview have branded it “uncomfortable.” One social media user remarked: “I know we’re living in different times, but how did they think that was okay!?! they’re young?”
