Munn said they were the same colleagues who never bothered to reach out after learning she had spoken up. I did cause pain to people in the cast. The Washington Post generally does not identify victims of sexual crimes, but Carnes said, in a statement provided to the L.A. Times, that she is speaking out to "reclaim" her identity.
'I have no shame for what was done to me.
I think an apology has to happen privately not just publicly, and I believe in his apology he said he apologised to people past and present that he's put in that situation, and I believe that would be me, but I didn't get that apology, I had to read about it online with everyone else.Variety reported that Black and Munn did not do red carpet interviews at the movie's premiere at the Toronto Film Festival; Munn later said she "was ushered past and told we didn't have time". "I am very deeply sorry ... because it really bothers me that this movie that could have been these handsome people on a attractive night but for only this, has been overshadowed in some ways by a stupid decision I made". That's unacceptable. I take full responsibility. I am not the one who needs to carry that shame. "To be acknowledged by a stranger, on a public platform about this issue is incredibly empowering", she wrote. She took a stance for me.
Of her decision to speak up, Munn asked, "How could you not do that, like, what's the other option?" The girl, who was age 14 at the time of the incident and known only as "Jane Doe", contacted the Los Angeles Times to reclaim her identity. "The positive feedback from social media towards Olivia Munn is uplifting and feels incredibly supportive for me personally". What's important to note here is that no matter how shocking and uncomfortable this news was for the entire production staff, Munn immediately emphasized that "It's been most tough on the Jane Doe that was in the story because the victim is the victim".
"Without a doubt, by stepping forward today with such eloquence, you have inspired so many other survivors", Munn added.
Director Shane Black apologized at the film's Hollywood premiere on Wednesday, telling the Associated Press his decision to hire Steven Wilder Striegel was "irresponsible" and had come about because of a failure to vet the actor, who is also Black's friend, properly. Sometimes all it takes is one person speaking up for you, acknowledging your worth as a human being. "My Father has supported me in my healing and growth in ways I can not thank him enough for", Carnes says.
Boyd Holbrook said in an Instagram post Tuesday that he was "proud of Olivia for the way that she handled a hard and alarming situation, and I am grateful that Fox took the information seriously and took action swiftly". In turn she stood for all who have suffered like I have.
I hope anyone who has suffered like I have regains their voice and their humanity.
