Kristen Stewart has come under fire by a lot of people and organizations because of her idiotic remarks that paparazzi pictures are akin to a woman being raped in the July UK Elle Magazine. She told People:
I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously. “And I’m really sorry about my choice of words.” ‘Violated’ definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought.”
Kristen played a victim of rape in the 2004 film Speak, and has also done some public service announcements for RAINN and SOC, and says:
People thinking that I’m insensitive about this subject rips my guts out. I made a big mistake.”
I’m glad she made a statement to apologize for what she said. We are all human and make mistakes, and say things incorrectly or that we don’t mean in the manner in which they are taken. Also, she is young, so perhaps we need to cut her some slack. What do you think? Holy crap, I’m in a very forgiving mood today. What the hell is going on? Is the world coming to an end?
