LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10 (UPI) — Amber Tamblyn has shared a personal sexual assault story on social media where she also dismissed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The actress posted her account of how she was attacked by an ex-boyfriend on Instagram Sunday before the second presidential debate alongside a photo of Trump kissing a Miss Universe winner, a reference to the real estate mogul’s recently uncovered comments about groping women.
“I need to tell you a story. With the love and support of my husband, I’ve decided to share it publicly,” Tamblyn began her tale, mentioning her husband David Cross whom she married after going through “a long emotionally and physically abusive relationship.”
“One night I was at a show with a couple girlfriends in Hollywood, listening to a DJ we all loved. I knew there was a chance my ex could show up, but I felt protected with my girls around me. Without going into all the of the details, I will tell you that my ex did show up, and came up to me in the crowd,” she shared.
“The minute he saw me, he picked me up with one hand by my hair and with his other hand, he grabbed me under my skirt by my vagina – my pussy? – and lifted me up off the floor, literally, and carried me like something he owned, like a piece of trash, out of the club,” the 33-year-old continued.
“I thank God his brothers were also there and intervened,” she wrote. “In the scuffle he grabbed at my clothes, trying to hold onto me, screaming at me, and inadvertently ripped off my grandmother’s necklace, which I was wearing.”
“The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” star then took aim at Trump.”That part of my body, which the current Presidential Nominee of the United States Donald Trump recently described as something he’d like to grab a woman by, was bruised from my ex-boyfriend’s violence for at least the next week. I had a hard time wearing jeans. I couldn’t sleep without a pillow between my legs to create space.”
“I am afraid my mom will read this post. I’m even more afraid that my father could ever know this story. That it would break his heart. I couldn’t take that. But you understand, don’t you? I needed to tell a story. Enjoy the debates tonight,” Tamblyn concluded.
During the debate, Trump said the tape of him speaking about “grabbing” women was “locker room talk” while his opponent Hillary Clinton noted that the scandal is the most recent example of why Trump is unfit to serve as president.
