Serena Williams isn’t the only one indulging rape victim blaming

Tennis star Serena Williams made some silly remarks about rape the other day for which she has now apologised.

Responding to the outrage generated by her original remarks, in a statement posted on her website yesterday Williams said she was “reaching out” to the victim’s family to let her know that she “by no means would say or insinuate that she [the victim] was to blame”.
