The #metoo movement is gaining momentum on social media.
It began on April 8 when actor Billy Bob Thornton shared an Instagram photo of himself with his now-deceased girlfriend, singer Jessica Bartholomew, who was accused of multiple instances of sexual misconduct.
“I was in a state of shock, but I didn’t think I was going to get it right away,” he wrote.
“My initial response was: ‘I don’t know what to do, so what are we going to do?'”
He continued, “I’m not sure I’m the one for it.”
In the days that followed, several other men shared their own accounts of sexual harassment or assault by powerful men.
One woman, a New York City public advocate, accused a Hollywood producer of raping her and pressuring her into a sex act.
Another, a former Washington Post reporter, accused former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka of molesting him.
Then on June 3, comedian and comedian Trevor Noah posted a photo of his mother and daughter on Instagram wearing different outfits, captioned “I want to be a dad, but how?”
“It feels like my mom’s the only person that’s been left behind,” Noah wrote.
The #MeThatsAbout hashtag was coined to reflect the many women who’ve come forward since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke.
At the time, many celebrities took to social media to share their stories, with actress Rose McGowan writing: “My name is Rose McGowen and I have a story to tell.
I’ve been sexually harassed, assaulted, physically attacked, and threatened by a man in Hollywood for years.”
McGowan said she felt like she was a victim, but also wanted to be heard.
“I’m sick of being the only one that’s not,” she said.
A few days later, comedian Aziz Ansari shared a similar photo of a young woman at a bar in New York. “
So I feel the need to speak up.
“Then he goes, ‘I’m a fucking white man, and I don’t think he knows what he’s doing.'””
There’s a bunch of white guys and I’m like, ‘Who are you?'” he wrote, referencing the #MeAgainstTrump hashtag.
“Then he goes, ‘I’m a fucking white man, and I don’t think he knows what he’s doing.'”
The hashtag has since spread across Twitter and Facebook, and has attracted thousands of tweets.
Many people are saying #MeIt’s about #MeForUMensToo, which has been trending on Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr since Tuesday.
The hashtag was created by actress Emma Watson, who also spoke out against sexual harassment during a speech at the Women’s March on Washington.
Watson is one of many celebrities and musicians to speak out about the #meitstagshow scandal, which also resulted in a flood of sexual-misconduct allegations against powerful men in Hollywood.
The hashtag, however, has also attracted controversy because some people have suggested it’s just a “sad” movement that’s trying to raise awareness for those who’ve experienced sexual abuse or assault.
Others have accused the hashtag of being sexist, racist, or harmful to women and girls who’ve had to endure harassment.
According to the Washington Post, some people on social platforms are calling the hashtag a “men’s rights” movement.
Others have accused it of being “anti-women.”
But many people are taking it in stride.
“This hashtag is not a men’s rights movement.
It is not anti-woman.
It’s not anti-[sexism] or anything like that,” one person on Twitter wrote.”
The hashtag is about helping people to share stories about the injustices that men face,” another person wrote.
#MeItIs about #MenAndWomenForUMenThatsAll, the hashtag’s main hashtag, has been growing on Twitter for the past week.
The sentiment behind the hashtag has been strong.
The #feministmovement hashtag, which is being supported by the #NotMyPresident campaign, was created last year by comedian Leslie Jones.
Jones, who is African American, wrote a book called “Dude, I am a Feminist,” that was also published last year.
Jones has also said she supports the #feminism movement, and she has called for more women to speak publicly about their experiences of sexual abuse and harassment.
A new #MeItsAbout hashtag is also gaining traction on social networking sites.
An Instagram account called @MeItsAllAbout is promoting the hashtag on Instagram and Twitter, as well as on a Facebook page called #MeitsAllAbout.
Many people have also been tweeting about the hashtag, including @nancygwenn, who identifies as a white woman. “It’s been
