Glenn Beck: Oprah's Trayvon Martin Comment 'Offensive,' 'Evil' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Glenn Beck attacked Oprah on Wednesday over her recent comments about Trayvon Martin.

Oprah had compared Martin, the unarmed black teenager who was shot and killed last year, to Emmett Till, the young black boy whose death spurred the civil rights movement. The two cases are "the same thing," she said.

Beck called the comparison "unbelievably wrong," saying, "These are two cases that... have nothing in common."

He said that George Zimmerman's killing of Martin was ruled as self-defense, whereas Till was brutally murdered by racists. “How are these stories like each other at all?” Beck continued. “It’s offensive, and I would go so far as to call it evil to compare these events.”
