Shockingly, even powerful, rich actors have poor boundaries when it comes to women’s bodies.
At Vulture Fest on Sunday, during her panel for 2 Dope Queens, Jessica Williams alluded to an upsetting incident with someone we all probably think is hot and cool. She doesn’t name them, so no one’s specific illusions will be destroyed by this. Williams says:
Yesterday, I was doing the red carpet for the Peabody’s so I was doing interviews. I was doing an interview, and all of the sudden, this guy, this popular actor comes up behind me and just grabs me and just pulls me in towards him. I was literally talking to somebody, and was like, “What? What is happening?” And he was like, “Yeah, girl. You fine” … If I was at a fucking bodega in Harlem and this happened to me, I would literally stab you. But because he’s a great actor, everybody’s, “Haha, that’s funny, right? Good one, you got touched.”
Hrm, who was at the Peabody Awards who would try to grab Jessica Williams from behind on the red carpet? Probably not any of these guys.
This kind of reminds me of a time a super hot guy slapped me on the ass at a concert and I was pissed because if he’d just said hello like a human I would have given him permission to slap me on the ass in private later. Keep your hands to your damn selves, everyone.
