Paris Hilton treatment slammed by Project’s Sarah Harris

The Project panellists have slammed the treatment of women in Hollywood who have had intimate videos leaked after Paris Hilton revealed how her sex tape was released without her consent.

Co-host Sarah Harris labelled the move to release the private video by Ms Hilton’s boyfriend when she was 19 and he was 29 as “disgusting”.

“What happened to Paris Hilton all those years ago, by today‘s definition would be revenge porn,” Harris said.

“Yeah, she made this tape with her partner and he released it without her consent.

“In fact, he released it, despite her pleas not to have it released. That’s disgusting”

Hilton says in her upcoming memoir her then boyfriend pressured her into filming the X-rated video in 2001 and released it without her permission in 2004.

“He said he had every right to sell something that belonged to him – something that had a lot of financial value,” she wrote in her book.

She said that “shame, loss and stark terror” swept over her at the news the tape was released.

“I felt like my life was over and in many ways it was,” she said.

Waleed Aly said that the “joking and humiliation” that women like Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson was “just unfair and wrong” and went onto question the use of OnlyFans by many women today.

“We are in an era where that sort of stuff is ubiquitous, people are posting all sorts of stuff on social media and often being celebrated for it. Like it‘s some kind of, you know, liberating thing empowering sort of a thing,” he said.

“But we don’t know the backstory is we don’t know if in 10, 20 years or whatever, they’ll come out and tell a similar story like that.”

Guest on the show and former netballer Liz Ellis pointed out that women were usually the most affected when intimate tapes and images are released.

“I feel like we still have to be really wary about this sort of stuff when it comes up and not cast a woman in a particular light,” she said.

“Because it’s always a woman who gets slandered, it’s her career, that really suffered.”
