As Twitchy reported on Monday, Ellen Barkin admitted she had known for years that Jeffrey Epstein’s girlfriend was a sex trafficker, and of course, people wanted to know WHY she never said or did anything to stop it.
Welp, Ellen tried to find a way to make HERSELF the victim in all of this and defended her tweet … which only made her look even worse.
My tweet was not about what I did or did not do. I tweeted info known to me and anyone familiar w the case. Assumptions like this prove a point…the rush to judgement, to criticize. All of us. Let’s stop. It’s time.

Oh, so stop blaming her for not saying anything and allowing who knows how many girls to be victimized.
And nobody rushed to judgement, she literally admitted SHE KNEW.
Man, we weren’t sure she could make herself look even worse but hey, she managed.
I understand your sentiment. But, you retweeted a tweet clearly indicating an "assumption" about Trump. And followed it with you knowing about the trafficking. But, we are beating a dead horse. I wish everyone would have been more vocal, more public, braver, to save those girls.

Hooray for Hollywood and stuff.
Wow, this feels a lot like the Harvey Weinstein thing, but worse.
So, that’s a yes, then, clearly – you knew about this?

So, did you report it at the time? Yes or No?

Sounds like a big fat no.
And hey, we should stop being mean to her and stuff.
No, your tweet was an attempt to virtue signal without realizing it actually showed you as the horrible person you are.
