Excerpts from Pamela Anderson's upcoming memoir have been leaked, and Tim Allen is once again in the Hollywood hot seat.
In her memoir Love, Pamela, Anderson alleges that Tim Allen exposed himself to her during the first day of shooting on the Home Improvement set in 1991. Anderson and Allen were 23 and 37 years old at the time, respectively.
“On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably,” Anderson wrote in the memoir, according to Variety.
Twitter in a Frenzy Over Allen Allegations
Love, Pamela will be released later this month, but these specific allegations against Tim Allen have whipped users across social media into a frenzy. Many supporters of Allen were quick to dismiss the reports, while others seem to be firmly entrenched in the camp of Anderson.
User RealMattCouch is passionate about his argument, claiming that nobody believes the allegations due to the fact that Anderson once dated a rock star:
Imagine being in a relationship with Tommy Lee and then claiming to be offended when Tim Allen flashes you…— Matt Couch (@RealMattCouch) January 23, 2023
No one believes this BS…
This user brings up Tim Allen's past and says that she believes Anderson:
Tim Allen has lied before…I believe Pamela Anderson when she said Allen flashed her on the set of “Home Improvement”. In her book, “Love, Pamela” she said Allen said, “it’s only fair because he had seen me naked”. Hey men…we don’t want to see it. pic.twitter.com/O0QS5E1yiO— Laurie🪴 (@Laurieluvsmolly) January 23, 2023
Allegation Timings Are Suspicious According to Twitter
User AlanAda29272500 brings up the timing of these allegations – most notably the fact that not only did it happen 32 years ago while noting that Allen may have good reason to sue Anderson for slander based on these allegations:
Pamela Anderson is saying Tim Allen did something 32 years ago. Never mentioned it before, just in her book. I say, yeah, sure. Without proof, Tim Allen will have a great slander law suit.— Alan (@AlanAda29272500) January 23, 2023
Many users took to Twitter to take the defense of Anderson, pointing out the “it was just a joke” defense that has been a hallmark of defending sexual misconduct:
Tim Allen flashing Pamela Anderson like it was ‘just a joke' is every dude who harasses a woman he wants to bang and tries to use a comedy figleaf when his advances crash harder than the hindenburg— Hammancheez (@Hammancheez) January 23, 2023
User CarmineSabia thinks Anderson has fabricated the entire story in hopes that salacious allegations like this one will lead to greater book sales:
Pamela Anderson has given thousands of interviews. Never mentioned Tim Allen doing anything to her. But now she needs to sell a book, and he has a ton more relevancy than her. She will do anything for attention, including creating a story.— Carmine Sabia (@CarmineSabia) January 23, 2023
This user puts it simply: “Tim Allen is a creep and always has been.”
I believe Pamela Anderson.— Gloria Sandusky (@GloriaLSandusky) January 23, 2023
Tim Allen is a creep and always has been.
_DCP3 has taken a undoubedly unique approach to the controversy, adding little to the discourse with a simple “who cares.”
Tim Allen flashes Pamela Anderson….who cares. Seriously, I can't believe what counts as news now.— Danger Zone (@_DCP3) January 23, 2023
Finally, this user claims that all of Tim Allen's defenders “know he did it.”
anyone defending Tim Allen knows he did it but they just don't think it's a big deal because they also harass women with ‘jokes.'— Desi (@DesiJed) January 23, 2023
