Gabrielle Union Defends Sexual Assault Victims
Gabrielle Union is a brave lady and an open book. The actress who made headlines in recent weeks for revealing her “8 or 9” miscarriages is discussing personal matters again. Gabby whose recalled on multiple occasions previously being raped at gunpoint, felt implored to speak out on sexual assault in midst of the Weinstein scandal.
After Food Network host Sunny Anderson posted, deleted and apologized for a series of tweets denouncing his accusers for not being “brave” and meeting with Weinstein in hotel rooms, Gabrielle Union clapped back and broke down exactly why Sunny was wrong.
“Ppl remain silent 4 many different very personal reasons. Judgment, victim shaming/blaming, loss of job/$, fear of violence, retaliation,” wrote Gabby.
“In Hollywood meetings in homes, hotel lobbies/restaurants/suites, private isolated office space is the norm. NO ONE “ASKED FOR IT!!””
She also spoke on her own rape and debunked that ridiculous annotation that clothing can justify being sexually violated.
Speak on it Gabby.
We appreciate her honesty and transparency on this. While some people are being obtuse about the Weinstein scandal, she’s using her unfortunate trauma to educate.
