One more woman is speaking out about an alleged encounter with Jian Ghomeshi on the day that he was acquitted of five sex-related charges.
Actress and screenwriter Zoe Kazan, who starred in films such as "Ruby Sparks" and "Meek's Cutoff," took to Twitter Thursday and recounted an experience with the former CBC Radio host that happened in 2013.
Not that I need personal experience to believe the women accusing Jian Ghomeshi, but let me say this: in 2013, Ghomeshi interviewed me (1/5)— zoe kazan (@zoeinthecities) March 24, 2016
Before we went on air, he told me I was "just his type." "Funny, sexy, just the right amount of damage," he said (after talking abt 3 mins).— zoe kazan (@zoeinthecities) March 24, 2016
This within the context of a professional interview, with producers in the room. I was shaken, but tried to hide it. Gotta be game, right?— zoe kazan (@zoeinthecities) March 24, 2016
Later he showed up @ party I was at & wdnt leave me alone. His unwanted attention made me feel like I'd "asked for it." I felt dirty & sad.— zoe kazan (@zoeinthecities) March 24, 2016
I think of the way he made me feel, without ever laying a hand on me, and I tremble with rage for the women who were denied justice today.— zoe kazan (@zoeinthecities) March 24, 2016
This behavior is insidious, but so is a culture that condones it, by turning a blind eye, or shaming the victim. We internalize these mores.— zoe kazan (@zoeinthecities) March 24, 2016
Kazan's posts have been widely re-tweeted. But they've also drawn abuse.
Right. Bring on the poison. I know it must make you feel like real men to do this to women online. pic.twitter.com/oi4K4j0qEv— zoe kazan (@zoeinthecities) March 24, 2016
Ghomeshi was acquitted of four counts of sexual assault and one count of overcoming resistance by choking after Judge William Horkins decided that the witnesses who appeared in court weren't "sincere, honest and accurate" in their testimony.
The ex-host now faces a second trial for sexual assault that will take place in June.
