Pamela Anderson doesn’t have much sympathy for the women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault.
Several weeks ago, countless alleged victims came out and claimed the movie producer made unwanted passes at them or forced them to take part in unwanted sex acts.
More than one has even claimed she was raped by Weinstein.
Thanks to these courageous women, numerous others have come out and leveled charges of similar mistreatment against such stars as Louis CK, Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer.
But Anderson doesn’t see Weinstein’s accusers as brave or courageous.
She sees them as… stupid?!?
"It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood or people to avoid, privately," Anderson told Megyn Kelly on Friday morning, adding:
"You know what you’re getting into if you’re going into a hotel room alone."
Did they, though?
Did these young women, many of whom were just starting out in Hollywood, really know Weinstein was such a monster?
And what is Anderson’s general point here anyway? Is she really placing even an ounce of blame on the victims of sexual assault?
Saying you should have known better after someone gets raped is never a good look.
The ex-Baywatch star went on to say women need the "ability of self-protection."
Meaning what, exactly?
"There are a lot of self-protection courses. There is even a well known story of suffragettes learning martial arts."
Asked about her comments by TMZ, Anderson insists she was "not victim blaming."
Weinstein is absolutely "a sexist pig and a bully," she added and the women did not deserve what he reportedly did to them.
Still, she says she won’t be "coerced into apology" and she stands by her original comments to Kelly.
Watch them in context below.
