Ellen DeGeneres opened up about being ‘a victim of sexual abuse’ and how she’s ‘furious’ that victims aren’t believed

Ellen DeGeneres recently opened up to “Today” cohost Savannah Guthrieabout her experience with sexual abuse.

During the interview, which will air in full on Friday, Guthrie asked DeGeneres how she feels “this moment” has impacted her — presumably referring to the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

“Well as a victim of sexual abuse, I am furious at people who don’t believe it — and who say, ‘How do you not remember exactly what day it was?'” DeGeneres said. “You know, you don’t remember those things. What you remember is what happened to you and where you were and how you feel.”

“I think anybody who has gone through it, right now is watching this so angry because how dare you not believe us?”
