Bella Thorne desires out of #MeToo movement right after new Asia Argento claims
Bella Thorne declared on Wednesday she no longer desires to be element of the #MeToo movement right after Asia Argento claimed then-17-year-old Jimmy Bennett "sexually assaulted her" &mdash a sharp twist from the allegations he produced against her last month.
"I’m disgusted. No longer want to be apart of the #metoo moment," Thorne, 20, tweeted. "Jimmy was a young kid. This is gross."
The former Disney actress added that, "If this is what the me also movement is going to be about now I am not right here for it. … Victim shaming. Just awful."
Thorne joined the anti-sexual harassment and assault movement in January when stated she was "sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can bear in mind till I was 14."
"Over and over I waited for it to quit and lastly it did," Thorne mentioned in the Instagram post. "But some of us aren&rsquot as lucky to get out alive. Please right now stand up for every soul Mistreated. #timesup."
Thorne on Wednesday linked out to a Deadline report in which Argento, 42, disputed Bennett’s claims that he sexually assaulted her when he was 17 years old in 2013. He alleged the two had a sexual encounter in a hotel area in California, exactly where the legal age of consent is 18.
Bennett, TMZ reported on Wednesday, plans to file a sexual assault report with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department following a statement from Argento’s lawyer that said Bennett attacked her, and that she intends to start off the #MeToo movement’s "Phase Two."
His lawyer told the news outlet "the attack on my client’s character has no bearing on the events that took place on Might 9, 2013. These are statements that are meant to intimidate, shame and insult my client."
Argento &mdash one of the initial prominent girls to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault &mdash denied the allegations initially, and said that her late boyfriend Anthony Bourdain paid Bennett, now 22, due to the fact the two deemed him "dangerous" soon after he asked for financial aid.
Following Argento’s denial, a photo of her and Bennett laying in bed seemingly naked collectively appeared on the web &mdash and quickly soon after that a series of text messages in which Argento allegedly admitted to a sexual encounter with a minor were handed more than to investigators.
