Pamela Anderson attacks Trump over comments


Pamela Anderson has attacked Donald Trump during a speech in which she calls on people not to use pornography.

The former Baywatch star – who recently wrote an opinion piece about porn for the Wall Street Journal – hit out at the Presidential candidate’s comments about women.

A recording emerged last week in which the Republican nominee bragged about being able to grope women because of his fame.

Speaking to the Oxford Union, Anderson said: “It’s terrible and I’ve heard other men speak that way, even about me, and it cannot be swept under the rug because how we deal with it – how he is … it’s not okay.

“So I was completely offended, like everybody else, and I don’t like the way he said it was just locker room behaviour because I don’t believe that’s true of the men who do speak that way.

“It’s got to stop, you’ve got to have respect for women, behind closed doors, around women and around men.”

The 49-year-old former Playmate was taking part in a joint event with American orthodox Rabbi and prolific author Shmuley Boteach.

The unlikely duo are in the UK for a series of talks for an awareness campaign they are calling “Take The Pledge”, advising people to be aware of the consequences of what they are exposing themselves to.

She said she was aware her criticism of porn might seem hypocritical but that she was speaking out because “I am afraid that the world might forget how to make love”.

Talking about some of the material she had seen online, she told the packed chamber: “It is not fine to be slapped, called a whore and spat on – it’s sick, it’s hurtful, it’s demeaning and it’s terrible, terrible sex.”

Anderson has said she is working on a book called The Sensual Revolution about the increasing disconnection between sensuality and sexuality.

On Friday, she was seen delivering a vegan lunch and a copy of designer Vivienne Westwood’s diaries to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy.

She has been a campaigner for animal rights for many years.
