Sexual abuse is a serious issue all across the globe. After more than 40 actresses accused Harvey Weinstein of sexually assaulting them, several women opened up about their struggle through the #MeToo campaign. Later, the 65-year-old producer said he was in “counselling”. Moreover, Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey was also in news for allegedly “forcing himself” on American actor Anthony Rapp. In response to that, Spacey put out a statement saying that though he does not remember the incident, he owes Rapp the “sincerest apology” and referred to the possible act as a “deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour”. The ‘House of Cards’ actor also came out as gay in the same statement. The actor was later slammed for his tweet on social media.

Taking a dig at such “apologies”, author and speaker Kate Harding put up a sarcastic tweet where she explained how women would and probably should apologise for stabbing men at work. “I am sorry for all the times I stabbed men, just a little, in my previous workplace. After years of counseling, I stopped stabbing men,” her tweet read.

Her veiled attack led to some other equally brutal responses. While one user wrote, “In the 90s, everyone was stabbing men, or chopping off their body parts. I understand now that this was wrong, but it explains the context”, and another wrote, “If an infection is the result of a stabbing, look at it as a gift from god. Don’t punish an innocent infection for the crime of the stabbed.”
