ICYMI: On Sunday, The Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde opened up about her own experience with sexual assault — but shocked MANY by claiming that sometimes women are to blame for getting raped. HUH?!
The I'll Stand By You singer stated:
"If I'm walking around in my underwear and I'm drunk. Who else's fault can it be? Technically speaking, however you want to look at it, this was all my doing and I take full responsibility."
Whoa! That's so sad, no woman should ever feel responsible for such a horrendous act forced upon them. We can't say we're 100% surprised she's receiving so much backlash.
What's even sadder is that Miz Hynde didn't even realize she was saying anything controversial.
"I don't think I am saying anything controversial, am I?"
Nonetheless, many of the 63-year-old's fans have since taken to Twitter to express their disdain (below) for the Brass In Pocket performer's comments.
