(PageSix) Pamela Anderson says Harvey Weinstein's victims should have known better - and even after a backlash against her comments, she's still not apologizing. After discussing her own incidents of childhood sex abuse, "I learned never to put myself in those situations again", she said. She also attempted to dismiss the controversy saying "This is not victim blaming" and referring to Weinstein as "a sexist pig and a bully". She added that "women [must be] aware of certain problems and how to spot them and fight them". She just wants everyone to have the "ability of self-protection", and even recommends taking courses. She has said that she was molested from ages 6 to 10 by a female babysitter, raped at age 12 by a 25-year-old man, and then gang raped in 9th grade by her boyfriend. "It is totally hypocritical to ignore this".
Her comments were largely taken as victim blaming and people demanded an apology, but on her website, Anderson explained that her message wasn't about making excuses for predators, but instead about female empowerment. "These things that are common sense".
Anderson told Kelly, "It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood or people to avoid, privately". "That's not a good excuse".More news: Supermoon - The largest and most impressive Moon of 2017

On being informed that the meetings of the complainants were scheduled by their agents and that they had hardly anything to do with the venue or time, the Baywatch actor briskly replied that those women should have gone to the meetings along with their agents. Somehow I think she was expecting the backlash.
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.

She continued: "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". 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". 'As a PETA activist, I don't work with animals in film, because they're treated horribly. "And I stand by what I say". We have the power to be safe and free by using common sense.
