The Harvey Weinstein allegations have been in the public eye for sometime now and most people have taken a sympathetic view towards his victims as he clearly abused his power and status, but one person who surprisingly doesn’t feel that way is Pamela Anderson.

Anderson was doing an interview with US journalist Megyn Kelly when she revealed that she though all of Weinstein’s victims knew what they were getting into:
I think it was common knowledge. That certain people or certain producers in Hollywood are people to avoid privately. You know what you’re getting in to if you go to a hotel room, alone.
It’s not a good excuse to say these hotel room meetings were set up by an agent.
Then go with them. That’s what they should have done. Sent somebody with them. I just think there’s easy ways to remedy that. That’s not a good excuse.
When I came to Hollywood. I had a lot of offers to do private auditions and things that just made no sense, just common sense.
Don’t go into a hotel room alone. If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, leave.
Things that are common sense. But 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. I don’t know where this security comes from, but somehow I dodged it all.
I encountered Weinstein myself when I was shooting Superhero movie in 2008. I played the Invisible Girl, with an invisible dog.
As a PETA activist, I don’t work with animals in film, because they’re treated horribly.
I said, ‘If I have an invisible dog, I just want to make sure there’s no dog there because I can’t do the film if there’s going to be a dog in the film. That’s it.
Then he called and said, ‘You little [mumbles], you’re so lucky that I put you in a film, and you’re Pamela Anderson and you don’t deserve anything and if you don’t do this thing, you’ll never work in this town again.’
Never in my life have I been talked to like that, and I’ve had some bad boyfriends.
Well it doesn’t really sound like she’s being that sympathetic at all there does it, and kinda outrageous considering she experienced it herself but managed to ‘dodge’ it. I mean that’s lucky for her and it seemed like it worked out for her, but not everyone was as fortunate. Have some feelings and compassion there Pamela, geez.
