Phoebe Tonkin Wants The Next Generation Not To Feel Guilty About Speaking Out About Sexual Assault

Phoebe Tonkin is recounting her own sexual assault story on Twitter today.

After the launch of the Twitter initiative, The Originals star joins countless others in opening up about their stories.

Phoebe took it one step further, reminding us beyond the sexual assault she experienced, she was also subject to slut shaming afterwards.

“Left phoneless and walletless in the dark on the side of a road, picked up by 2 guys, had to fend off the same thing again by them #metoo.”


“No one is immune to assault or harassment. No one.”

Phoebe adds, “Slut shaming and victim shaming is the same thing. I was a teenager and that type of story was accepted by the girls as normal, and used as a way to ruin my reputation and spread as gossip by the boys. That there is the problem.”
