” To all the women out there, I am sorry if I have unintentionally hurt your sentiments on the #MeToo movement . First I am a huge supporter of the movement and it’s unfortunate that some of my comments were taken out of context. My reason for saying ‘I wish something like this would have happened to me’ in the film industry with a smile was because I would have reacted and slapped that person. So it never happened and much later when it happened, I did react and the whole world saw it.” She added, “Having said that, I recognize that not everyone is in a position to fight back and I don’t want to marginalize the women that have been abused.” Going on, she wrote, “I have seen both sides of the coin and I’m very hurt and sad I have to write such long clarification specially after advocating and fighting for women’s rights all my life. I hope in the future there is more trust, especially for women because if we don’t stand together, there really is no movement.” All she wanted to say was that she does not want the movement to be diluted by women with the help of false allegations because, she says, “My brother went through it and eventually shot himself.”
