Can we all just agree that child sexual abuse is not funny?
On her podcast this morning, reality star Brandi Glanville told her guest, “I, too, wanted to be molested as a child and was passed up.”
She and her guest (comedian Jim Florentine) continued their banter, with Glanville concluding, “Now looking back, I’m super-bummed. I was thinking, ‘All this and nothing?’ Super-hot and they passed me up!”
In response to public backlash, she later tweeted:
1 in 10 children will be sexually abused by the time they turn 18. The violation of these children, OUR children, is not funny. It’s inappropriate, counterproductive, and potentially hurtful to those who’ve faced the terror of child sexual abuse.
Brandi Glanville, your show may be “comedy based,” but we’re not laughing.
