Everyone is weighing in on the Harvey Weinstein scandal. The latest person to comment is Food Network's star Sunny Anderson.
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein/alleged sexual assault scandal, Anderson rattled off a series of very insensitive tweets about women who don’t report their incidents of sexual assault fast enough and even boasted how fast she reported her former boss after she fell victim herself.
“I refuse to call the 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 10th person to come out and say, ‘me too’, BRAVE. We can call them LATE though ... or I can,” she boasted. “So, as all these women come out of the woodwork...ask yourself... were they complicit in their silence? Complicit when taking payoffs?
“In fact I blamed them and still do for not being BRAVE and reporting him before he had a chance to make one more victim,” she concluded.
Well, of course this led to the foreseen and predictable apology tweet. By then, the damage had already pretty much been done.
“I've deleted my obviously polarizing & offensive statement,” Anderson tweeted earlier this afternoon (October 15). “As a victim & warrior against sexual harassment in the work place, I apologize.”
