France's Deneuve Apologizes to Sex Assault Victims, Stands By Letter

On Monday, actress Catherine Deneuve apologized to victims of sexual assault who were offended by a column denouncing “puritanism” she signed, following the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Deneuve and 99 other French women signed a column in Le Monde last week saying that the #MeToo campaign, had gone too far and was fueled by a “hatred of men." In a letter on Monday, Deneuve stood by the statement that sparked an international outcry, but distanced herself from comments made by other signatories.
