'Vanderpump Rules' star Stassi Schroeder apologizes for '#MeToo' remarks

UPI News Service, 11/27/2017 

Stassi Schroeder is apologizing for her controversial "#MeToo" remarks.

The 29-year-old "Vanderpump Rules" star admitted in a post Saturday that she "crossed a line" by making "generalized statements" about sexual abuse and harassment victims on the Nov. 24 episode of her podcast, "Straight Up with Stassi."

"My podcast is an outlet for me to share my unfiltered opinion with my listeners; but on my latest episode I crossed a line," Schroeder confessed.

"It was irresponsible for me to make generalized statements about a very serious topic, such as sexual harassment, as it is not my place to speak about anyone else's experiences. I apologize."

"I will continue to speak my mind on my podcast, but will put more thought behind my dialogue moving forward," she added.

Schroeder said she had a "sobering" 24 hours after she aired the episode, which was titled "Are We on a Male Witch Hunt?"

Entertainment Tonight reported the star deleted the episode after receiving backlash, including from several sponsors.

"We're shocked by @stassi's comments re the #metoo campaign," Rent the Runway tweeted.

"It goes against everything RTR stands for as a company and has publicly advocated. Our 1st ads were slated to run on Mon but effective immediately we've terminated our relationship with her podcast."

Actress Alyssa Milano reignited the #MeToo movement in October following multiple sexual assault and harassment allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein.

The hashtag calls for people to post "me too" if they've experienced similar abuse.
