So, one of the biggest news stories this past weekend has been the leaked video of Donald Trump talking about women and their genitalia in a sexist and disgusting way, and it’s affected many people on an incredibly personal level. And one of those people happens to be actress Amber Tamblyn, who was inspired to share a deeply personal story of how she was emotionally and physically abused in a past relationship.

She recently posted an impassioned message on Instagram, saying that she felt compelled to tell her story and raise awareness.

Prepare yourselves, because her ex did show up and this is where it gets graphic.

Thank god Tamblyn was able to break free from his grasp and get help, because who knows what could have happened after that.

Here’s the whole message:

It takes a lot of courage to share such an intimate story, and it is so, incredibly important that Tamblyn did — because apparently some people still need a reminder that grabbing a woman by her genitals is not okay, or justifiable, or merely “locker room talk.” It’s assault. We’re sending all the love to Amber Tamblyn and hopefully this also raises much-needed awareness about sexual abuse.
