Figure Skater Ashley Wagner Calls Out News Article Regarding Her Sexual Assault Story

Ashley Wagner is calling out a news article concerning its coverage of her sexual assault experience.

The former Olympic figure skater took to social media on Friday (January 17) to share her thoughts.

“It wasn’t newsworthy because it wasn’t rape,” Ashley tweeted in response to the article link. “This is the problem. Right here. This coward who couldn’t even attach a name to the statement, this is the kind of ignorance that we are up against. Wake up. You’re on the wrong side of history bud.”

“It’s not newsworthy because I wasn’t raped,” she added on Instagram. “Really? This is where we are? USA Today published an article quoting an anonymous male skater who didn’t seem to understand why my story was relevant.”

“I detailed an extremely uncomfortable, traumatic and embarrassing experience in my life with the hope of helping out a future generation of athletes and I’m still having to justify that I was sexually assaulted!?” Ashley Wagner wrote. “SEXUAL ASSAULT IS SEXUAL ASSAULT. I cannot believe we are still having this same conversation. Be better. It’s LONG overdue. We should be so much further down this road of change and progress than we actually are. To any survivors out there, your words and experiences are valid, and I am so sorry we haven’t pushed this world to where it needs to get to yet. #metoo.”

Daniella Monet Opens Up About Teaching Her Son About Veganism

Daniella Monet Opens Up About Teaching Her Son About Veganism

Daniella Monet is excited to teach her son Gio about veganism and animal welfare as he grows up.

The Victorious actress – who has been vegetarian since she was about 5 years old and is now vegan – got candid in a new interview with Mercy for Animals’ Compassionate Living. Here’s what she had to share:

On educating her son about veganism and animal welfare: “Nothing makes me more giddy than to imagine him growing up knowing this from birth. Something about having instilled this from infancy seems magical to me. And to be able to give that to him… I think it’s going to be be really special. Whatever he decides to do in his life is his calling, and the best that I can do is shed light on the things that I think matter and speak the truth and watch him sort of run with it.”

On if her eating habits changed while pregnant: “I feel like it’s been so seamless. The best part about being vegan is you really don’t have any limitations while pregnant. A lot of people struggle with having to give up lunch meat or certain cheeses or fish. I didn’t have to worry about any of it.”

On if being pregnant inspired her feelings of empathy toward mother animals: “Being pregnant has instilled a totally different level of strength in me. I’ve always been empathetic and just generally very compassionate toward animals, but when it comes to mothers – mother cows – I feel a connection and a strength in me to provide a voice for them that I didn’t even know I really had until being pregnant myself.”
