As more and more claims of powerful men harassing and violating women are coming to light, what’s nice to see is the support and encouragement that many are getting from other women who believe their accounts, have similar accounts of their own or just want to be supportive in such a terribly harrowing time.
Actress Busy Phillips took to Twitter to unleash a strongly worded tirade on the now shamed director who has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by at least six women, two of whom are actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. Phillips, 37, who happens to be good friends with Munn had some specific words for the director.
Phillips says that her friend has been saying this about Ratner for years and that these disgusting allegations would never really catch weight or would be brushed under the rug. Phillips goes on to say that he’s been using his position of power to force himself onto women who were not interested in him for a long time.
What’s more is that Phillips actually tweeted her disdain for the director before this news even broke publically.
She wrote on Twitter: “Brett Ratner has a 450 MILLION dollar deal at WB? A man who’s reputation is that of a letcherous [sic] creep AT BEST. Plus he makes s****y movies.”
So it’s safe to say that when the Harvey Weinstein case blew open, it did set the groundwork for so many others doing similar things to be called out, held accountable and face consequences for their actions.
Phillips also added that despite her having appeared in subpar movies herself, she says she’s not also abusing and violating women in the process. Munn detailed how Ratner made her life miserable for quite some time.
He lied about them sleeping together, trapped her in his trailer so she couldn’t leave while he pleasured himself and even ejaculated on magazine covers she was featured on.
A real sick and depraved individual. Ratner has since “walked away” from his projects at Warner Brothers and has recently filed a defamation suit against one of the six women who has spoken out about his behavior.
