Pamela Anderson Responds on Her Comments on Harvey Weinstein's Victims

Pamela Anderson is not apologizing for her comments to Megyn Kelly about Harvey Weinstein's accusers.

"This is not victim blaming", Anderson told TMZ, adding that she never said women deserve to be abused.

Earlier this week, on 30 November, Anderson was interviewed by the Today show host Megyn Kelly where she spoke about the most talked-about subject in Hollywood - sexual harassment and especially Harvey Weinstein.

The actress said she wants culprits punished, she added women need the "ability of self-protection".

Anderson mentioned "self-protection courses" in the post, suggesting women learn martial arts.

Anderson previously spoke about her own confrontation with Weinstein, saying: "He told me I'd never work in this town again, because I refused to work with a dog". We have the power to be safe and free by using common sense. That certain people or certain producers in Hollywood are people to avoid privately, ' she confessed. "That's not a good excuse", she said. Don't get in cars with strangers #rideresponsibly- Don't go to Hotel rooms alone for an audition.

Anderson also recounted an incident in 2008 when Weinstein was personally abusive to her over the phone, after she raised concerns about animal welfare on the set of Superhero Movie.

But they would NOT tolerate a woman with her own opinion.

I can tell you that from my experience of working on protectin - be it a protection of journalists and human rights defenders and internet security - there is ALWAYS a call and recommendation to see the issues in their complexity. She went on to say that various figures made unscrupulous propositions to her when she first arrived in Hollywood, and it only took common sense to avoid getting involved in complicated situations. If someone answers a door in a bathrobe, leave.

She recalled that "never in my life have I been talked to like that, and I've had some bad boyfriends". Anderson elaborated on her unwillingness to apologize, writing on her Instagram, "I'm a deep thinker / I have a unique perspective. and effect is part of my life". And yet, she said, "I'm going to be open-minded to Trump turning over a new leaf and perhaps being more like a president".

No one wants to believe them, everyone wants to think that Hollywood is a shining, happy place that runs on dreams and only squashes those that want everything without being willing to work for it.
