Paris Hilton Apologizes for Doubting Alleged Donald Trump Victims (Kind of)
Paris Hilton, your enduring problematic fave, is apologizing for casting doubt on women who’ve accused Donald Trump of sexual assault…
In an interview from November 2016 that Marie Claire published earlier this week, Hilton basically dismissed Trump’s infamous Access Hollywood interview as playful banter, and said of his accusers “I think that they are just trying to get attention and get fame…And I’m sure that they were trying to be with him too.”
Now, in a statement since offered to Us Weekly, Hilton’s tried to clarify her stance.
“[Those quotes] were part of a much larger story and I am regretful that they were not delivered in the way I had intended,” she said. “I was speaking about my own experiences in life and the role of media and fame in our society and it was never my intention for my comments to be misapplied almost a year later. I always believe in helping women have their voices heard and helping create an environment where women feel empowered and believe in themselves. I am deeply hurt by how this has played out and also deeply sorry. Moving forward I will continue to do what I can to be an advocate for girls and women with the hopes of providing a louder voice for those who may desperately need it.”
