'Baywatch' actress Pamela Anderson lashed out on Twitter after her rumoured boyfriend Julian Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
In a series of tweets, the Canadian-American actress voiced her opinion and hit out at UK authorities.
She started with: 'I am in shock..I couldn’t hear clearly what he said? He looks very bad. How could you Equador ? (Because he exposed you).How could you UK. ?Of course - you are America’s bitch and you need a diversion from your idiotic Brexit bullshit.' [sic]
Here's the entire thread -
She also tweeted an image of the Wikileaks founder on April 5 along with a Latin phrase which means 'the truth will prevail'.
She later also started a campaign saying 'Don't extradite Assange'. She posted the link and requested people to 'Sign the petition'.
For those unaware, in August last year, Pamela Anderson told Fox News: 'He's not close to people like he is to me. There's definitely a romantic kind of connection because it's a romantic struggle.'
Later in November, in an interview, she said: 'I feel closer to him than a lot of people have and he trusts me. Yes, it's a friendship.'
WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London after living under political asylum for 7 years warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates' Court on 29 June 2012, for failing to surrender to the court.
Assange was arrested by the British police inside the embassy on Thursday, however, the WikiLeaks handle also claimed that Assange 'did not walk out of the embassy', but the British police were called inside the embassy, that led to his arrest.
The official handle of WikiLeaks on Twitter claimed that Ecuador illegally terminated Assange's political asylum for violating 'international law'
