Angela Lansbury blames women for sexual harassment

Angela Lansbury blames women for sexual harassment

Angela Lansbury, British actress best known as sleuth Jessica Fletcher in Murder, She Wrote, found herself in a real-life pickle on Tuesday, this one of her own making.

Dame Angela Lansbury has claimed that women "must take some blame" when accusing men of sexual misconduct.

Lansbury went on to call it "awful" that women can't make themselves "look as attractive as possible without being knocked down and raped".

"There are two sides to this coin", Lansbury said. She said she believes the abuse will stop now since "a lot of men must be very anxious", adding that she never experienced sexual harassment as a young actress.

The star, who voiced Mrs. Potts in Disney's animated version of Beauty and the Beast, also offered her perspective on sexual harassment and assault in the interview. Some of the clothing included, according to the Huffington Post, a bikini, a red dress, and a T-shirt and jeans.

Karan later said her comments were "taken out of context", insisting that "sexual harassment is NOT acceptable" and apologized for offending "everyone that has ever been a victim".

All nine people were from a passenger van, while the two occupants of the commercial van that collided with it were uninjured. Officers from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit are investigating and examined the scene on Tuesday afternoon.

The Rape Crisis England & Wales responded with a statement, noting, "It is a deeply unhelpful myth that rape and other forms of sexual violence are caused or "provoked" by women's sexuality or 'attractiveness'". "We just might reduce it".

The responses on Twitter have been swift, with many users referencing her past work as they level criticism at the actress. There is even a discussion about how and when she grew up could play a part in her way of thinking.

Others wrestled with the fact that Lansbury is 92, and therefore may be voicing attitudes that come from an earlier era when sexual politics were different.

Or at least, she was. What's more, she added that individual women were not to blame, necessarily.

That second tweet obviously refers to Christopher Plummer replacing Kevin Spacey in All the Money in the World. There's always people who commit sexual harassment.
