Although it may be more common among women, we aren’t the only ones who are sexually assaulted. In a bold move, these celebrity men who were sexually assaulted opened up about their own abuse, helping to relieve some of the stigma around male sexual assault.
Shia LaBeouf has been making headlines lately and it’s not because of a new movie he’s starring in. The former child star recently revealed that he had been sexually assaulted back in February after taking part in a performance piece at an art gallery. “One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for 10 minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me,” LaBeouf wrote in “Dazed” magazine. The woman reportedly ran out before anyone could stop her, but LaBeouf has received anything but support after his revelation with many questioning why he didn’t stop the assault from happening.
