Pam Anderson doubles down on Weinstein-victim comments

Anderson had previously revealed how Harvey Weinstein - who has been accused of sexual misconduct against a number of women over a 30 year period - told her she would "never work" in Hollywood again after she refused to work with a dog. "Anderson found that matter very complex, she said, "(I) will not get coerced into apology".

However, she is not condoning Harvey Weinstein's alleged actions, and says he is "a sexist pig and a bully".

In the same interview, and appearing to contradict her own statements on Weinstein, Anderson spoke about her own childhood sexual abuse, and how survivors have a tendency to blame themselves. "[Author note: emphasis mine]"There are a lot of self-protection courses. There is even a well known story of suffragettes learning martial arts".

The former Playboy Playmate, who was a victim of sexual abuse herself as a child, said she wants to see all perpetrators punished, but advocated that women should be able to protect themselves. "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 risky", she told @nytimes.

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", she said. She went on to say that various figures made unscrupulous propositions to her when she first arrived in Hollywood, and it only took common sense to avoid getting involved in complicated situations. Women are powerful and smart and we can use all our charms in more positive ways, ' she said.

She said: 'Don't go into a hotel room alone. If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, you know, leave.' Things that are common sense. She's had her own issues with Weinstein in the past and has been pretty candid about the experience, citing that she's had bad boyfriends that never treated her the way that Weinstein did.

After much backlash, Anderson told TMZ on Friday that she was not a victim-blamer and that she stood by her comments.

"I, myself, am a victim of sexual abuse, and I know that predators are always to blame - exclusively and entirely", she wrote in an earlier blog entry. What's the problem?' And I said, 'No. Things that are common sense. 'As a PETA activist, I don't work with animals in film, because they're treated horribly.
