Ronda Rousey on #MeToo Movement: There’s This ‘Fear and Distrust’ Now

The fighter-turned-actress says she notices men and women are 'less comfortable' with each other than before

Ever since people have begun coming forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against others, Ronda Rousey said she’s noticed that interactions between men and women have changed.

The WWE star on Thursday told USA Today she doesn’t have that much experience with the movement, but said she realized that people are far “less comfortable” during their interactions than before.

“To be honest, I don’t really have that much experience with the MeToo movement. I notice that men and women seem almost less comfortable around each other since the movement, because everyone’s afraid to have one person [post] one wrong tweet about them,” Rousey said in an interview.

“I think it’d be less likely for a male director and a female actor to go out and have lunch just to talk about the movie,” she added.

“It’s almost putting this fear and distrust in people — [and] what trial by Twitter has really done is keep people apart.”

Rousey said the movement has prompted people to hang out in groups, adding that “maybe that’s safer, or maybe that’s better.”
