After facing criticism from some fans and celebrities for posting a message on Twitter about the successful meeting between President-elect Donald Trump and President Obama, Oprah Winfrey says she believes Jesus was trying to teach her a lesson.

The 62-year-old media tycoon who helms the OWN network appeared on a Facebook live broadcast on Nov. 13 with film director Ava DuVernay for the latter’s documentary called “13th.” There, Winfrey addressed the fact that some fans were disgruntled by a positive tweet she sent out about Trump’s meeting with Obama after the election.

Winfrey said the experience has taught her a lesson that she has faced in the past.

“This is the second time I’ve had tweet troubles,” she said during the Q&A in Los Angeles, Califonia, last Sunday, according to Entertainment Weekly. “And it’s the same lesson. So Jesus, I hear you. You don’t have to tell me again.”

Winfrey’s tweet centered around Trump’s first meeting with Obama last week when she captioned an image insinuating that people could have hope after reports said both men were cordial with one another.

“Everybody take a deep breath!” Winfrey wrote in the photograph before adding, “#HopeLives.”
