‘UK, you are America’s bitch’: Pamela Anderson launches scathing tweetstorm following Assange arrest

‘UK, you are America’s bitch’: Pamela Anderson launches scathing tweetstorm following Assange arrest

As the world digests the shock news that Julian Assange is in custody in Britain after Ecuador withdrew asylum from the WikiLeaks founder, Pamela Anderson, a staunch supporter of the Australian, has let her feelings be known.

The Baywatch star unleashed a barrage of criticism at the UK, Ecuador and the US in the aftermath of Thursday’s dramatic arrest, which saw 47-year-old Assange carried out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London into a waiting police van.

Assange, who was in the embassy for nearly seven years, was arrested for failing to surrender to the court and also on an extradition warrant on behalf of US authorities.

In an extraordinary series of tweets, Anderson branded the UK “America’s bitch” and implied that it had used the arrest as a diversion from Brexit.

“And the USA? This toxic coward of a President. He needs to rally his base? You are selfish and cruel. You have taken the entire world backwards,” she added.

The 51-year-old actress also expressed concern for Assange’s wellbeing, saying “he looks very bad.”

Anderson has made no secret of her admiration for Assange, previously describing the whistleblower as “one of the most important people living.”
