Pamela Anderson Slams U.K. after Julian Assange Arrest
"Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson visited the WikiLeaks founder several times during his seven-year stay in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. The star lashed out at Ecuador, the UK, and the US earlier today following Julian Assange's arrest in London.
Actress Pamela Anderson took to Twitter to slam three nations after WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange was arrested on Thursday. Assange had been living at the Ecuadorian embassy in London for seven years.
On Thursday morning, Ecuador not only revoked Assange's asylum status, they also handed him over to British Police. He now faces possible extradition to the U.S.
Anderson, a supporter of Assange, took to Twitter shortly after the WikiLeak's co-founder was carried out of the Ecuadorian embassy, ending seven years of political refuge. She slammed the UK and Ecuador writing:
"I am in shock.. I couldn’t hear clearly what he said? He looks very bad. How could you Equador ? (Because he exposed you). How could you UK.? Of course - you are America’s [expletive] and you need a diversion from your idiotic Brexit bullshit."
She went on to slam America as well. She also called the President a "toxic coward" who is "selfish and cruel."
The actress then implored her followers to donate to the WikiLeaks official Defence Fund. She explained that WikiLeaks relies on supporters around the world to sustain itself.
Anderson and Assange reportedly became close after having been introduced several years ago by Vivian Westwood. The actress and activist visited Assange several times during his stay at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
"We talk about everything," said Anderson of their friendship in 2018. "We talk about the Bible, we talk about what's happening with my kids, what's happening with his family. It's not just about politics, even though I do take a lot of notes and it's so overwhelming, the information he gives me."
