‘Westworld’ Star Evan Rachel: “I Was Raped Twice”
"Westworld" star Evan Rachel publicized she was raped not once but twice in her life. She said her partner raped her and then she suffered again on another occasion when a bar owner raped her.
"I've been raped. By a significant other while we were together. And on a separate occasion, by the owner of a bar," Rachel said. She expressed further that remaining silent in cases such as hers is something women should stand and tell someone, revealed in Mirror.
She was taken advantage of her bisexuality when she came out last 2011. Her sexual orientation is worthy of an eye roll and it can be realized that stigma is just around any environment and can be damaging and result to shaming.
On a report by Daily Mail, Rachel, 29, suffered a traumatic psychological, physical, and sexual abuse from her former partner said on an email admission with Rolling Stone and on a separate interview account. This is a rare admission from a woman who is a victim of abusive assaults such as rape.
After the admission of her "gender fluid" orientation or her bisexuality, people call her names on the street when she dated Marilyn Manson who once married Dita Von Teese. Back then at 18-year-old, she met Marilyn.
Rape is a case where it is hard to prove and as well hard to defend when reaches the court. This is where abusive individual take advantage of women who stay weak and silent despite the abuses they experience.
On Ranker, it listed other significant celebrities who experience sexual assault. The famous Oprah Winfrey survives rape at age nine. Lady Gaga in an interview with Howard Stern said a record producer raped her at 19. Teri Hatcher also gave her share of experience at age five when her uncle raped her.
There are many stories that are heard and some need to be heard. If a woman is a victim of sexual assault, she should be heard by all means and that justice be given.
