Pamela Anderson received instant backlash for comments she made about the Harvey Weinstein scandal on “Megyn Kelly Today,” most notably that “you know what you’re getting into if you’re going into a hotel room alone.” She has since expounded on her statement in an Instagram post, and isn’t exactly apologetic — among other things, she said that “my position is not ‘problematic’ because I doesn’t fall in line with the common herd or trend.”

“I’m trying to tell women as a survivor of childhood abuse myself – It is important to be proactive as an adult who knows better – in defending themselves,” she writes. “Don’t get in cars with strangers #rideresponsibly – Don’t go to Hotel rooms alone for an audition.”

“Women are powerful and smart and we can use all our charms in more positive ways,” continues Anderson. “I think it’s very smart to be proactive. And I stand by what I say.” Read her full thoughts below.

Re- My interview on #todayshow #megynkelly Somebody had to say this. Please don’t worry. Refer people to my blog and long standing commitment to defending the vulnerable. We have the power to be safe and free by using common sense. My message is consistent throughout- I'm a deep thinker / I have a unique perspective. and consequence is part of my life. This is great. I am also an advocate for men. I just don't agree with it all. Backlash is good. – I like this. My position is not 'problematic' because I doesn't fall in line with the common herd or trend. I'm trying to tell women as a survivor of childhood abuse myself – It is important to be proactive as an adult who knows better – in defending themselves. Don't get in cars with strangers #rideresponsibly- Don't go to Hotel rooms alone for an audition. Women are powerful and smart and we can use all our charms in more positive ways. I think it’s very smart to be proactive. And I stand by what I say. My mother taught me – protect yourself. Especially with my ‘image’’ – she and I were worried it could give people wrong Impression. I am not an easy girl and have not had as many partners people might think. I believe in love and commitment and common sense. This is why I'm usually married. It is how I feel safe and protected in a sexual relationship. .A monogamous lover is the best and most brave lover there is. I only want intimate sexual experiences – where I can be free to give my wildest fantasies to someone who loves me. and never have used sex as a weapon. It's just too easy. #bestrong #staysafe #noblame @todayshow #solutions #nodrama
