Nag-post ng kanyang official apology letter ang Hollywood actress na si Lindsay Lohan dahil sa naging controversial remarks niya sa #MeToo movement kamakailan.
Sa isang interview sa The Times ni Lohan, ito ang nasabi niya tungkol sa #MeToo:
“I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women.
“You have these girls who come out, who don’t even know who they are, who do it for the attention. That is taking away from the fact that it happened.”
Dahil sa sinabing ‘yan ni Lohan, nakatanggap siya ng bashing mula sa maraming kababaihan sa buong mundo. Imbes daw na sumuporta siya sa mga katulad niyang babae, siya pa raw ang nagsasabi na kasalanan ng babae kaya ito nagiging biktima ng sexual harassment at sexual assault.
Dahil sa backlash na natanggap ng aktres, naglabas ito ng kanyang apology:
“I would like to unreservedly apologize for any hurt and distress caused by a quote in a recent interview with The Times.
“The quote solely related to my hope that a handful of false testimonies out of a tsunami of heroic voices do not serve to dilute the importance of the #MeToo movement, and all of us who champion it.
“However, I have since learned how statements like mine are seen as hurtful, which was never my intent.
“I’m sorry for any pain I may have caused. I feel very strongly about the #MeToo movement and have the utmost respect and admiration for the women brave enough to come forward and speak out about their experiences.
“Their testimony has served to protect those who can’t speak, and give strength to those who have struggled to have their voices heard.”
