Pamela Anderson Responds to Backlash Over Her Comments About Harvey Weinstein Victims

Pamela Anderson, 50, has stirred up controversy by saying on Megyn Kelly Today that the woman who've accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault should never have been around him in the first place.

Anderson is the latest star to be accused of victim-blaming women who have come forward to accuse prominent men of sexual abuse. She told TMZ, "This is not victim blaming".

Pamela also brought into discussion an incident from 2008 when Weinstein was personally abusive to her over the phone, after she raised concerns about animal welfare on the set of Superhero Movie.

A portion of her posting read, "Somebody had to say this. There is even a well known story of suffragettes learning martial arts".

Anderson spoke with Megyn Kelly on Thursday, where she talked about the sexual abuse she had to overcome as a child.

Anderson added, "I$3 will not get coerced into apology".

On being informed that the meetings of the complainants were scheduled by their agents and that they had hardly anything to do with the venue or time, the Baywatch actor briskly replied that those women should have gone to the meetings along with their agents.

When Kelly countered that numerous actors were sent by their agents, Anderson responded, "They should have sent somebody with them". If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, leave.

Anderson stated that the notion that she's blaming the victims "misconstrues" her point of empowerment and said she's pleased with the Kelly interview. That's not a good excuse, ' Anderson said.

Earlier in the interview, Anderson explained that she was faced with shady meetings too: "When I came to Hollywood, of course, I've had a lot of offers to do private auditions and things that made absolutely no sense. These things that are common sense".

'I know Hollywood is very seductive and people want to be famous and sometimes you think you're going to be safe with an adult in the room.

Anderson said she wasn't surprised when allegations of misconduct surfaced, as his behaviors were "common knowledge".

Actress Pamela who is enjoying her life and feeling liberated like never before is enjoying her life in her fifty. I believe in love and commitment and common sense. Not even by a boyfriend.

Pamela, who has revealed she clashed with Weinstein over their 2008 film Superhero Movie, went on to make reference to the explanations some actresses have given for agreeing to speak to people such as Harvey and filmmaker James Toback in their hotel suites, alone, after Kelly pointed out numerous meetings had been arranged by their agents. And I did it. I am talking to an invisible dog.
