Showbiz Clooney

Oprah Winfrey has said she will match George and Amal Clooney’s donation of half a million dollars (£357,000) to students organising protests against gun violence in the US.

The TV personality wrote on Twitter that she “couldn’t agree more” with the actor, who had said “our children’s lives depend on it”, and said she would donate the same amount to the March For Our Lives fund.

She said: “These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.”
