Every Man In Hollywood Who's Been Fired Over Sexual Misconduct Claims

Busy Philipps claims she was raped at the age of 14, an admission she made in support of Dr. Christine Ford's sexual assault testimony against Brett Kavanaugh today.

Busy Philipps revealed she was raped as a teenager in a heartbreaking and unprecedented Instagram post Thursday.

In support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault testimony against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh today, the actress shared a photo of herself as a 14-year-old girl, revealing that's how old she was when she was sexually assaulted.

"This is me at 14 -- the age I was raped," she captioned the shot. "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 four months ago."

"Today is the day we are silent no more -- all of us," she continued. "I'm scared to post this. I can't imagine what Dr. Ford is feeling right now."

Philipps' public admission was met with love and support from celebrities including Katie Couric, Jenna Fischer, Lena Headey, January Jones, singer Aimee Mann, British actress Ione Skye, songwriter Ed Roste and Canadian author Kelly Oxford.

Minutes after Philipps shared her story, Oxford came forward with hers.

"By age 14, I had already been sexually assaulted by three men: a peer, a man on a bus and a doctor," Oxford captioned a photo of herself from that time. "I would go on to be assaulted by a man who followed me into a women's bathroom and by another doctor. We will not stay silent. We stand by Dr. Ford today."

Ford appeared in public for the first time Thursday morning to testify on her allegations against Kavanaugh. She told lawmakers that the Supreme Court nominee "sexually assaulted" her and insisted she was not mistaking him for another person.

Ford -- a California-based professor and psychologist -- wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker earlier this summer, describing an alleged sexual assault she had endured at the hands of Kavanaugh more than three decades ago when the two were high school students at Georgetown Preparatory School in Maryland.

Last week, Ford came forward publicly with the accusations of "attempted rape" in an article published by The Washington Post. Today, she spoke in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Philipps' memoir -- "This Will Only Hurt a Little" -- will be released Oct. 16.

But Philipps was not the only celebrity to voice support of Dr. Ford. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Amy Schumer, Billy Eichner, Carole Radziwill, Mariska Hargitay, Whitney Cummings and others took to social media to do the same.
