Remember Sylvia Browne? She is one of the most famous or infamous “psychics” of our time, and she also predicted that Amanda Berry was dead. Of course, we all now know that is not the case, as Amanda herself ran into the arms of a black man earlier this week.
Browne’s prediction about the fate of Amanda Berry was not her first attempt to explain the fate of a child, but her fans on social media demanded acknowledgment from the self-proclaimed spiritual leader.
On Wednesday, Browne released the following through her Facebook page:
For more than 50 years as a spiritual psychic and guide, when called upon to either help authorities with missing person cases or to help families with questions about their loved ones, I have been more right than wrong. If ever there was a time to be grateful and relieved for being mistaken, this is that time. Only God is right all the time. My heart goes out to Amanda Berry, her family, the other victims and their families. I wish you a peaceful recovery.
“I remember you on Montel Williams telling the family of Amanda Berry she was dead,” wrote one commenter on Browne’s Facebook page. “What do you have to say for yourself? What a horrible horrible thing to say to a family holding on to nothing but hope and faith.”
“Can you admit that you’re a hack now?” asked another.
“I hope todays events seal it for you and everyone else who take advantage of those in mourning,” wrote another.
