Channing Tatum Comments On Rape Culture & Brock Turner

Channing Tatum is opening up about his thoughts on rape culture and the light sentence that Stanford rapist Brock Turner received.

The 36-year-old actor spoke to Cosmopolitan‘s Joanna Coles during a Facebook Live broadcast conducted in Cannes, France this week. He was asked about being a role model and how the culture could change after the Stanford rape case.

“That’s a tall question and I don’t know if I have the best…I don’t know if anyone has the best answer for it yet,” Channing said. “I think it’s tough. I think the rape culture is a very real thing.”

“I really think it’s a horrible, horrible idea to let someone off because of possibly what they’re gonna be capable of doing. Because if you start doing that, where do you end? Where does that stop? Where does that line actually quit? I don’t think it’s right. I think he should’ve been punished, personally,” Channing added.

Channing said that Brock‘s sentence was something he “couldn’t believe… It’s like if you killed someone and got caught red-handed and just because you went to a nice school and you were a good swimmer, you somehow get a lesser sentence. That just doesn’t make any sense.”
