Stassi Schroeder Explains Controversial #MeToo Comments: ‘It’s Never My Intention’ to Hurt People
Moving forward. Stassi Schroeder opened up about the controversial comments she made regarding the #MeToo campaign during an episode of her podcast, Straight Up With Stassi, in November.
During an exclusive interview with Us Weekly’s correspondent Christina Garibaldi, the 29-year-old reality star revealed that she was “absolutely” surprised by the backlash she received after the episode aired. “I wouldn’t have put something out that would hurt people if I thought it would hurt people,” Schroeder told Us on Tuesday, December 5. “That was never my intention. It’s never my intention to go and do a podcast that offends anyone or really hurts them. So I was very surprised. So all I can do is apologize and just try to be more mindful and be better moving forward.”
The Vanderpump Rules star, who recently clarified her remarks in a statement posted to Twitter, explained that many people have supported her since she issued the apology. “A lot of people have just been like, ‘All I needed to her was I’m sorry.’ So it’s been easier,” Schroeder said, adding that she still has mixed feelings about deciding to delete the episode. “I still wrestle with it. I’m not sure how I feel, because even when I deleted it I’m like, ‘Should I put it back out there?’ Because people are just reading now a few lines of a two hour podcast and they’re thinking that I’m saying something… I actually didn’t really talk about the #MeToo campaign that much at all. I literally, I feel like I made one sentence about it. It was one statement. So it became all about that. But I don’t want to bring more attention to it, I realize that I was misinformed and there’s a lot I don’t know. So I think it’s best that I didn’t re-release it.” – Source
