Oprah film crew denied Lahaina refuge after Jason Momoa blasts vacationers.
Today, Oprah Winfrey's video crew was denied admission to a Lahaina wildfire refugee shelter 'out of respect to individuals seeking safety'.
The TV personality tried to bring a CBS team into a facility where survivors of the Lahaina fires are still struggling, but they were denied.
Days after Oprah was recorded giving fire survivors supplies, she denied it.
Maui County stated, "Out of respect for those who have come to seek safety and shelter at emergency shelters, our policy remains that no media are given access.
We invite Oprah to continue to elevate our community and give her aloha to victims of the horrible accident and appreciate her understanding of our policy of no camera crews or reporters in emergency shelters.
"Oprah was able to visit our shelter and we thank her for instructing media journalists and camera crews to remain outside," the county tweeted in an update regarding Oprah seeking to enter.
"We welcome Oprah to continue uplift our community’s spirit and give her aloha to victims of the tragic disaster."
Meanwhile, Jason Momoa has urged tourists not to visit Maui in the aftermath of the wildfires that have devastated areas on the island, as residents look to "heal, grieve and restore."
