Stormy Daniels had the best response to troll who said porn stars can't be assaulted

If you'd asked people who Stormy Daniels was a few months ago, most of them probably wouldn't have a clue. Sure, there might have been a few guys who were a bit too interested in blue movies that would recognize her face, but she wasn't a celebrity by any means.

Now, however, she's gained notoriety around the world as the porn star who had an affair with Donald Trump.

The actress first came into the public eye in a big way when her lawyer claimed that she was paid $130,000 before the presidential election to guarantee her silence. Then, more recently, she made headlines after her 60 Minutes interview, during which she broke that silence and disclosed previously undiscussed details about her liaison with the president back in 2006.

One of the scariest details to come out of the interview was that Daniels was allegedly threatened by someone on behalf of Trump after she agreed to sell her story to In Touch Magazine.

"I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter. Taking, you know, the seats facing backwards in the backseat, diaper bag, you know, getting all the stuff out," the 39-year-old said. "And a guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.' And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, 'That's a beautiful little girl. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom.' And then he was gone."

This, along with all the other allegations she's made against the former businessman, annoyed many people on Twitter, who decided the best way to defend their president would be to hurl verbal abuse at the adult film actress. Luckily, she always has the perfect clapbacks.

However, one Twitter user took it too far when they implied that women in the adult film industry can't be sexually abused against their will.

"I think you give up your #MeToo card when you are a porn star #stormy daniels," tweeted a person using the account name @Angela_Chochi.

And, rather than deliver her usual put-down, Daniels actually seemed genuinely shocked at the notion - so she let everyone know about it.

"You are implying that women with certain jobs cannot be assaulted. This is a disgusting and terrifying thought process," she wrote in response. "For the record, I have stated numerous times that I am not claiming a " card" but I see you are definitely flying your asshat flag."

She also retweeted this response from one of her followers later on:

People who work as porn stars or sex workers can absolutely get assaulted just like the rest of us, but the issue isn't taken as seriously because they already engage in sexual contact as part of their job. So, rather than make light of this issue by involving Stormy Daniels (who has already stated that her affair with Trump was consensual), perhaps those who are hating yet apparently care so much about the #metoo movement could use their passions as a force for good.
