The amount of celebrities coming forward with their sexual harassment and assault stories continues to rise amid the Harvey Weinstein scandals. So far, there’s a staggering amount of famous women that came forward with allegations against the media mogul, including Cara Delevingne, Gwyneth Paltrow & Angelina Jolie. So you can imagine how many stories there actually are about women who experienced similar events in their lives sans Harvey.


Jennifer Lawrence recently revealed that she was sexually harassed early in her career, as was Lili Reinhart and Kaya Scodelario. One of the latest to bring her story to light is Phoebe Tonkin; she recently informed her fans that she fell victim to sexual harassment as a teenager.

On Tuesday, October 17, the 28-year-old Originals actress tweeted, “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.”

She continued:

In case we need to repeat it or say it louder for the people in the back, SLUT SHAMING AND VICTIM SHAMING IS THE SAME THING!
