Can you imagine how many flowers it would take to be heavy enough to sprain your back? Just ask Oprah Winfrey. She injured herself while trying to move a massive flower arrangement from filmmaker, Tyler Perry.
On her 59th birthday, Tuesday, the head of OWN tweeted, “In bed with an ice pack most of today. Moved a bushel of roses sent by @tylerperry and sprained a back muscle.” Perry apologized on Facebook, explaining, “I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah.” Perry also added that next year, he would send a single rose in lieu of a big arrangement.
Oprah didn’t seem too upset, responding, “No need to feel bad. Love the roses and got an extra day in bed.” As it was, Winfrey had tweeted that morning that her plan was to lounge around in her pajamas all day, so Perry was just means to an end.
