Pamela Anderson To ‘Start Campaigning’ For Men Falsely Accused Of Rape

Pamela Anderson has apparently had enough of men being falsely accused of rape and plans to start “campaigning” for victims.

The former “Baywatch” star was inspired by her close relationship with Julian Assange, the Wikileaks founder who has been accused of sex crimes in Sweden.

Assange has been taking refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for years to avoid prosecution for the allegations against him. Anderson recently began visiting him there and the former actress has developed an empathy for his situation, according to Page Six.

Assange has been accused of assaulting two women in 2010. He has denied the claims and it seems that Anderson has been inspired to speak up for him.

In an interview with Russia’s RT network published Wednesday, Anderson said that Sweden has “very progressive laws against sexual crimes,” adding that “It’s almost too progressive, it’s almost paralyzing.”

“I’m going to actually start campaigning for men who have been victims of being accused of rape when they haven’t actually done anything,” she added.

The actress turned activist has previously spoken out about her own experience of being raped and has campaigned on behalf of sexual abuse victims before, according to Page Six.

“We all, of course, gravitate to volatile people and we consider that to be women and children first and foremost, which is important, of course,” Anderson said. “But there are also a lot of me who have a vulnerable situation and [are] politically bullied.”
