Pamela Anderson, who was linked to Julian Assange, goes on furious rant after his arrest, says UK is 'America’s b*tch'
Pamela Anderson has finally responded to the sudden arrest of Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange, that took place at the Ecuadorean embassy in London, according to reports. Assange had sought asylum at the Ecuadorean embassy in London seven years ago in an attempt to avoid extradition to Sweden over a sexual assault case that was later dropped.
Anderson posted a series of tweets on her social media account, where the 'Baywatch' actress blamed Ecuador and UK officials for arresting an innocent man. "I am in shock... I couldn’t hear clearly what he said?" wrote the star, possibly alluding to the video of Assange being carried out of the Ecuadorean Embassy, which has gone viral since his arrest.
"He looks very bad. How could you Ecuador? (Because he exposed you). How could you UK.? Of course — you are America’s b*tch and you need a diversion from your idiotic Brexit bullshit," continued the actress. In another tweet, Anderson penned down her thoughts about the hypocrisy of people in the US, even taking a jab at President Donald Trump.
"And the USA? This toxic coward of a President He needs to rally his base? — You are selfish and cruel. You have taken the entire world backwards," she wrote. The actress concluded her tweet by calling out the "liars" around her, followed by a motivational message for Assange's supporters. "You are devils and liars and thieves. And you will ROTT. And WE WILL RISE."
Furthermore, Anderson posted a link on her social media account asking for donations in the name of WikiLeaks for their defense. According to the site, the WikiLeaks official Defence Fund had been put in place to "support a dedicated campaign team which advocates across the world, especially in global media, to build support for WikiLeaks and the public’s right to know."
The Metropolitan Police had said that Assange has been taken into custody. The officials added that the founder of the whistleblowing site will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court "as soon as is possible". The Minister of state for Europe and the Americas, Sir Alan Duncan, after Assange's arrest, said: "It is absolutely right that Assange will face justice in the proper way in the UK. It is for the courts to decide what happens next." Sir Alan added that they were grateful to Ecuador's government under President Lenín Moreno for their action which led to Assange's arrest. He also revealed that today's events follow "extensive dialogue between our two countries."
Anderson has always been a vocal supporter of the WikiLeaks founder, whom she considers to be "one of my favorite people". "We talk about everything. We talk about the Bible, we talk about what's happening with my kids, what's happening with his family," she revealed in an interview once. "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."
The actress has appealed to the public multiple times in the past, citing the horrible living conditions Assange was made to live in during his time at the Ecuadorean Embassy. "The air and light quality [at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London] is terrible because he can’t keep his windows open and he can’t get any sunlight. Even prisoners can go outside, but he can't. I'm always bringing him vegan food, but he eats very simply," Anderson added.
