Chrissie Hynde is taking a page out of Tom Petty’s songbook — She won’t back down.

Hynde is doing the publicity rounds for her new memoir, “Reckless: My Life as a Pretender.” During one interview, the singer described how she was raped decades ago, an awful moment chronicled in her new book. The singers said she felt partially responsible for putting herself in harm’s way. She wasn’t sober at the time, was dressed in a fashion that invited trouble and made bad choices.

Feminists howled, saying the singer was blaming the victim for a rape scenario.

“If you don’t want to entice a rapist, don’t wear high heels so you can’t run from him. Sounds like common sense,” she told the Washington Post, essentially doubling down on her comments. Call it the Trump hangover. Suddenly, people in the spotlight aren’t so eager to embrace the Apology Tour circuit.

Hynde tried to move attention away from her comments and toward more serious matters, like the Syrian refugees flooding parts of Europe.

“These are the heartbreaking images we have and we’re talking about millions of displaced persons and people whose families have been destroyed and we’re talking about comments that I allegedly made about girls in their underwear,” she said.
