Drama with Ethan Klein explored
Hours after the video went live, Ethan decided to break his silence. He did not seem pleased with Trisha’s statements in the video and tweeted about it.
He wrote: “I know ya’ll want me to talk about Trisha but this whole thing is extremely upsetting and disturbing, I’m still processing it. This is a person who I considered one of my closest friends a week ago who is now making videos accusing me of sexual harassing her. Its too much.”
He continued: “Trisha said I was sexualizing her in the workplace which is the textbook definition of sexual harassment.”
Trisha Paytas hits back on Twitter
After Ethan made this statement, Trisha hit back with a statement of her own on Twitter. In a series of tweets, Trisha accused Ethan of not watching her video and jumping to conclusions.
She said: “I assure you Ethan did not watch my video, inciting more unwarranted hate towards me. I don’t even know what to do at this point. I take responsibility for wrongs that I did on the show but I’m also allowed to speak on what made me uncomfortable regarding my sexual health/history.”
She continued: “I’m not sure if twisting everything I say this week is intentional to drive more hate my way or not but it’s disheartening. Starting with me wanting to “fire a crew” to now “accusations of sexual harassment” when it’s ME talking about MY sexual health/ history.”
In other tweets, Trisha made it clear she won’t be apologizing to Ethan as there a lot of things that have happened behind closed doors. As for her haters, Trisha asked them to unfollow her as she had every right to speak on her social.
