Filmmaker Abigail Disney, daughter of longtime Disney company executive Roy E. Disney, spoke about her own experience with abuse after Thursday’s Brett Kavanaugh-Christine Blasey Ford senate hearing. In a Twitter thread, she said that Kavanaugh’s “rage and entitlement” reminded her of her own father.
“In all seriousness, I feel for Dr. Ford, I have experienced sexual assault,” Disney said, adding that “nothing has been as triggering for me” as Kavanaugh’s behavior during the hearing. “I had an angry, alcoholic father. He had an inside face and an outside face,” Disney said.
Kavanaugh addressed questions about his drinking during the senate hearing, but said repeatedly that he does not have a problem.
