Christina Ricci is urging her fans to “believe victims.”
The Yellowjackets star, 43, shared a candid statement to her Instagram Story on Saturday about her experience with men who were “abusers privately.”
The post — which comes shortly after actors Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis apologized for writing controversial letters of support toward their That ’70s Show costar and convicted rapist Danny Masterson — began with Ricci sharing that “sometimes people we have loved and admired do horrible things.”
“They might not do these things to us and we only know who they were to us but that doesn’t mean they didn’t do horrible things and to discredit the abused is a crime,” Ricci wrote.
“People we know as ‘awesome guys’ can be predators and abusers. It’s tough to accept but we have to. If we say we support victims — women, children, men, boys — then we must be able to take this stance.”
