Pamela Anderson tells the UK 'you're America's b****' after Assange arrest
Actress and model Pamela Anderson has called the United Kingdom 'America's b*tch', in a series of tweets, after the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in London yesterday. The former Baywatch star has often publically supported his whistleblowing.
Taking to Twitter in the aftermath of Assange's arrest at the Ecuadorian embassy by police, Anderson wrote: "I am in shock ... I couldn’t hear clearly what he said? He looks very bad. How could you Equador? (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 bullsh*t"
"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. You are devils and liars and thieves. And you will ROTT And WE WILL RISE. [sic]"
She later added: "I’m deeply concerned at the response from mostly Americans who actually believe simply that Julian helped elect Trump? And - seem to believe the propaganda used to discredit him. Freedom of speech - the right to express opinions without government restraint - is a democratic ideal that dates back to ancient Greece. In the United States the First Amendment guarantees free speech though the United States like all modern democracies places limits on this freedom."
Assange was seized by British authorities, and reporters outside the embassy managed to capture footage of him, with a long white beard, being ushered into a police van. Assange now faces possible extradition to the US, after the Ecuadorian embassy withdrew his asylum. Scotland Yard has now issued a statement, claiming saying he had been further arrested on behalf of US authorities in relation to an extradition warrant.
