Following the release of a Washington Post report accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, many in Hollywood attacked him and assumed his guilt Sunday.
The accuser — a woman named Christine Blasey Ford — told the Post that Brett Kavanaugh, a 17-year-old high school student, groped and attacked her.
Ford said that Kavanaugh “groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it.”
Kavanaugh denied the allegations. Another student who was allegedly present during this incident has denied the encounter happened as well, saying the story is “absolutely nuts.”
Nonetheless, many in Hollywood immediately presumed Kavanaugh’s guilt and slammed him on social media.
“Brett Kavanaugh attempted rape NOonKAVANAUGH,” Rosie O’Donnell tweeted.
