11 Celebrities Who Broke Their Silence About Being Sexually Assaulted

Sexual assault is a terrible thing that we unfortunately are all too familiar with. We hear about sexual assault and harassment so frequently that it’s not even shocking anymore. Except, it should be shocking. We should be upset every time we hear about an assault, no matter who it happens to. I have several friends, men and women, who have been raped. I am sexually harassed on a daily basis. It happened this morning.

Sexual assault and harassment should never be considered normal. Speaking up is difficult because many people are shamed for addressing their assaults, which is so horrible. But if you have been assaulted, it’s never your fault.

I wish there wasn’t this stigma against sexual assault survivors, but maybe hearing others break their silence will encourage someone to have the strength to come forward. Sexual assault can happen to anyone, men, women, children and yeah, even famous people. These celebs survived assault and have come forward to share their stories so others might feel comfortable sharing theirs. Remember: you are not alone.
