Ann Widdecombe thinks the #MeToo movement is 'destroying men'

Right.

Ann Widdecombe has made a collection of questionable statements since entering the Big Brother house.

Most of them (or, all of them, nearly) have concerned nude photographs, women's bodies, and what it means to be a feminist in the 21st century.

However, yesterday Ann took it upon herself to give her two cents on the #MeToo movement.

The online campaign to out alleged sexual predators and raise awareness for the stark numbers of people who have experienced sexual abuse in Hollywood and beyond dominated headlines for the better part of 2017.

As a result of those who came forward with their stories, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and many others became accountable for their unwanted sexual advances and their exploitations of power.

Ex-Conservative Ann Widdecombe, however, believes that the movement was simply out to "destroy men" and that the whole thing was rather a bit "whimpery."

Butting in on a conversation between Shane/Courtney Act and Rachel Johnson, the woman who left the Church of England after they allowed women to become priests argued that the whole country is now "against men."

She said:

“I call it the whimpery.

"That is not what the last couple of years has been about in this country. It’s been about destroying men and the whole judicial system is loaded against men.”

When reminded by Shane that "... men have done some horrible things to women," Widdecombe said that women have done some horrible things to men too.

The conversation will be aired in tonight's instalment of Celebrity Big Brother, where either India or Jonny face leaving the house.

This year's series of the show is aiming to commemorate the 100 years since women received the vote.
