Hollywood's History of Sexual Misconduct

"We now live in a country where people lose their jobs when accused of something without proof," the actress tweets.

Kirstie Alley received a lot of backlash on Twitter Wednesday after she blasted anonymous victims for not facing their accusers in the midst of several sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood right now.

"What the hell is happening," Alley tweeted. "We now live in a country where people lose their jobs when accused of something without proof or trial or in some cases with anonymous accusers? Can't confront your accuser? This is bulls--t. And it hurts the real victims of abuse and innocent people."

Naturally, Alley's remarks were viewed as a reaction to the former NBC "Today" show host Matt Lauer getting the boot over one anonymous female colleague accusing him of "inappropriate sexual behavior." The actress later clarified that she never mentioned the TV personality in any of her tweets and the accusation is "another example of misapplication run a muck."

Still, many who spotted the tweet were not happy. One critic wrote, "Kirstie, you and Donna Karan should join up. Both of you are EQUALLY disgusting people for victim blaming. Incredibly insensitive and ignorant."

Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton was among the blue check marks leading the charge.
