Pamela Anderson has stood by her comments that the women who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault should have "known what they were getting into". I just think there are easy ways to remedy that. She said that women shouldn't have had any reservations in meeting with Weinstein since their agents likely set up the meetings. She said that women need the "ability of self-protection". "[Author note: emphasis mine]"There are a lot of self-protection courses. There is even a well-known story of suffragettes learning martial arts", she told TMZ".

The actress has responded to the heavy criticism she's received for the remarks, where she said in an interview that victims of sexual harassment should have used common sense. "It is totally hypocritical to ignore this". "The relentless campaign that Trump unleashed on me and Fox News to try to get coverage the way he liked it was unprecedented and potentially very unsafe", she told @nytimes. Things that are common sense. It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood or people to avoid, privately. "That's not a good excuse".

Undeterred, Anderson said that the women should still have had someone accompany them to those meetings in particular - to be safe.

The Hollywood star stated she was not surprised by the allegations made against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, speaking on NBC's "Today" show.

Marouane Fellaini OUT of Man Utd clash at Watford - journalist
Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic was forced off early in the second half with what appeared to be a leg injury. And against his former club, the 32-year-old delivered a masterclass of a performance in the first half.

The backlash from this is to be expected and more to the point it's not really surprising since so many rumors have been spread about Pamela Anderson in the past that any words she speaks now seem tainted by it. Try not to get in autos with outsiders #rideresponsibly-Don't go to Hotel rooms alone for a tryout. "If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, leave", Anderson said.

'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.

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. Things that are common sense.

"I've had some extremely bad beaus and I've never been conversed with along these lines", said Anderson. 'As a PETA activist, I don't work with animals in film, because they're treated horribly.
