Pamela Anderson trashes #MeToo movement: ‘Feminism can go too far’

Pamela Anderson offered a forceful condemnation of the #MeToo movement, telling an Australian TV interviewer that recent events had gone too far and that women needed to have “common sense” in dealing with men.

“I think this feminism can go too far,” she told “60 Minutes Australia” host Liam Bartlett. “I think it paralyzes men. I think that this #MeToo movement is a bit too much for me. I’m sorry. I’ll probably get killed for saying that.”

“You will,” Bartlett agreed.

“My mother taught me don’t go to a hotel with a stranger. If someone opens the door in a bathrobe and it’s supposed to be a business meeting, maybe I should go with somebody else,” Anderson said. “I think some things are just common sense. Or, if you go in, get the job.”

Anderson told Bartlett that her bathrobe comment was a specific reference to disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of greeting women for hotel-room meetings in just that way.

“I’m not politically correct,” she added, while also noting she still considered herself a feminist.

Reps for Anderson did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.
