Busy Philipps took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal that she was raped when she was 14 years old. According to the actress, she shared her story in light of Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, whom Ford has accused of sexual assault.
“This is me at 14. The age I was raped,” Philipps wrote alongside what appears to be a school photo. “It’s taken me 25 years to say those words. I wrote about it in my book. I finally told my parents and sister about it 4 months ago.”
She added: “Today is the day we are silent no more. All of us. I’m scared to post this. I can’t imagine what Dr. Ford is feeling right now.”
