Pamela Anderson is standing by her controversial comments about Harvey Weinstein and his alleged sexual assault victims.
On NBC's Today Show, Anderson opined that women "knew what they were getting into" when they agreed to meet him in a hotel room.
- Several dozen women have shared their stories in recent months about the disgraced movie mogul. Many of the scenarios involved Weinstein allegedly harassing, assaulting or raping them in hotel rooms after inviting them to his room for business meetings.
- She spoke to Megyn Kelly about her own sexual abuse as a child, and when asked about Weinstein, she said: "I think it was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood [were] people to avoid, privately. You know what you're getting into if you're going into a hotel room alone."
- When Kelly noted that many had women had been sent by their agents, she said: "They should have sent somebody with them. I just think there's easy ways to remedy that. That's not a good excuse."
- After her comments sparked outrage, she doubled down, writing on her website: "I'm trying to tell women ... be proactive as an adult who knows better - in defending themselves. Don't get in cars with strangers ... Don't go to Hotel rooms alone for an audition."
- She continues, "To say I am victim blaming completely misconstrues my point. Victims are not to blame, they never are ... predators are always to blame - solely and entirely. That doesn't mean we can't take common sense measures to keep ourselves safe and avoid harmful situations."
