S.E. Cupp got support from the hosts of “The View” Thursday when she appeared to discuss the fallout from the fake explicit photo of herself that recently appeared in Hustler magazine.
“I was horrified. It was disgusting and even though it wasn’t — I didn’t actually do that, by the end of the day I felt ashamed as if I had,” Cupp said of the photo. “Knowing that this photo will be out there forever, my children will see it when I have them one day, it’s sad.”
Co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck pointed out that the National Organization for Women has remained silent on the issue — calling them “the National Organization for Some Women.”
“The outrage that we’ve seen for some other examples of this has not yet been matched,” Cupp said. “That’s OK, I’m not a victim here.”
Cupp said she probably won’t be seeking legal action because it doesn’t seem like she would have a case.
“This is a First Amendment issue, [Hustler publisher] Larry Flynt does this professionally,” she said.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg seemed particularly outraged on Cupp’s behalf.
“Whether you’re a conservative or a Democrat, this should — this is not OK,” Goldberg said. “It’s offensive. This is not the dialogue we have when we disagree.”
The support for Cupp has not been universal — comedian Roseanne Barr took to her Twitter feed early Thursday and wrote a stream of posts decrying women for coming to Cupp’s defense:
Barr’s tweeting continued Thursday afternoon when wrote to Cupp, “you attack women’s rights, you are attacked — that is how it works now, watch and be aware.”
