On the E. Jean Carroll Allegations: Olivia Munn
E. In June 2019, an American author. Donald Trump is the target of horrific rape charges made by Jean Carroll, dating back to the mid-1990s.
Carroll said in a New York Magazine piece that in 1995, Trump sexually assaulted her in a dressing room at a clothes store. Later, President Trump refuted the allegations, calling Carroll “not my type” in a nasty comment.
Later, on a guest appearance on the US talk show The View, Olivia Munn spoke on the issue, which received mixed reviews. However, Munn added: “If someone is speaking out [about sexual assault], I believe you, and I also want to see evidence that supports it—really that’s crucial.” Munn defended Carroll and her claims.
It’s important to note that Munn has already made charges of her own. In a 2017 interview with the Los Angeles Times, she joined a group of six women who accused film director Brett Ratner of sexual assault, accusations the disgraced director “vehemently contests.”
I know that. That’s why I made the point to explain that if you ever read about someone coming forward about a possible abuser it’s most likely true bc the legal vetting process publications go through wouldn’t allow it to be published if it weren’t supported by evidence.

This is a total misunderstanding of what Go Fug Yourself is about…I guess it's easier to go after two women running a respectful fashion blog than to confront the entire industry and network of magazines and paparazzi that judge actresses' looks while promoting their careers
