Angela Lansbury feels women "sometimes" have to take the blame for sexual harassment because they "make themselves attractive". Yep, you read that correctly.
There's been plenty of backlash against Lansbury's comments (see below)
“There are two sides to this coin,” Lansbury explains. “We have to own up to the fact that women, since time immemorial, have gone out of their way to make themselves attractive. And unfortunately it has backfired on us – and this is where we are today.
The veteran actress does admit it's unfair and that it's "awful" that women can't make themselves look "as attractive as possible without being knocked down and raped.” With all the uproar about how women are treated, Lansbury thinks things will get better. "There’s no excuse for that," she adds. "And I think it will stop now – it will have to. I think a lot of men must be very worried at this point.”
Naturally, Lansbury has been getting plenty of backlash. Check out some of the reactions below:
