I wasn't victim blaming: Pamela Anderson
Actress Pamela Anderson has slammed claims she was "victim blaming" when she suggested Harvey Weinstein's accusers "knew what they were getting into".
 
The 50-year-old actress and model caused controversy when she appeared on "Today" and hinted at the idea that the women who have accused the disgraced producer of sexual harassment should have known what would happen if they went "into a hotel room alone".
 
Now, the "Baywatch" star has clarified her comments, insisting that she was not blaming those who have accused Weinstein, but stands by her claims that women "must be aware" of their surroundings.
 
Anderson told tmz.com: "This is not victim blaming. (Weinstein is) a sexist pig and a bully. (But) there are a lot of self-protection courses. There is even a well known story of suffragettes learning martial arts. Women (must be) aware of certain problems and how to spot them and fight them."
 
Anderson defended her comments further by refusing to apologize.
 
She added: "It is totally hypocritical to ignore this ...(I) will not get coerced into apology."
