FLASHBACK: Paris Hilton Joins ‘Time’s Up’ Movement, But Once Labeled Trump Accusers As ‘Looking For Attention’

Paris Hilton publicly joined the “Time’s Up” movement by wearing black Sunday, despite having once dismissed those accusing President Donald Trump of harassment as just “looking for attention.”

Hilton sparked controversy after tweeting her support for the “Time’s Up” initiative while donning black to protest sexual harassment at the 2018 Golden Globe awards, since she previously dismissed sexual assault claims against Trump during an August interview with Marie Claire.

“So, too, Hilton dismisses the infamous ‘grab them by the pussy’ line. ‘I’ve heard guys say the craziest things ever, because I’m always around guys, and I listen to them speak,’ she says. As for the women who allege that Trump sexually assaulted them, ‘I think that they are just trying to get attention and get fame,’ she shrugs, staring out the window,” the Marie Claire interview reads.

The 36-year-old hotel heiress took to Twitter Sunday, posting a photo of herself wearing a long black dress.

Hilton previously denied Page Six’s claims in November that Harvey Weinstein followed her into a bathroom during a gala in 2001, reported the Daily Mail.

“I don’t remember, it was a long time ago,” Hilton said Nov. 29.

She also praised women for speaking out against Weinstein, saying, “All girls are like sisters and everyone’s coming together and really making a difference.”
