Amber Tamblyn has ruled on an abusive ex-boyfriend, stimulated by the newly discovered recordings of Donald Trump doing unpleasant and offensive comments about assaulting women.
In response to comments uncensored Republican presidential candidate, including his saying that he could do nothing for women, including “grab them by pussy” because of his fame, Tamblyn shared a very personal story on Instagram Sunday.
“A long time I ended a relationship emotionally and physically abusive long with a man who had been for some time,” the actress wrote with a photo of Trump kiss pageant queen Olivia Culpo. “One night I was in a show with a couple of friends in Hollywood, listening to a DJ we all loved it.”
Tamblyn continued, explaining that his ex takes you across the room and out the front door, while his friends ran after him in an effort to stop it. Luckily, his brothers were there and intervened.
The incident left understandably shaken Tamblyn – not to mention physically and emotionally wounded.
“That part of my body, that the current US presidential candidate Donald Trump recently described as something that would like to take a woman, grinding violence of my ex-boyfriend for at least the next week,” he wrote. “I had a hard time wearing jeans. I could not sleep without a pillow between my legs to create space.”
Tamblyn wrote that the time was one he’ll never forget, adding that he feared her parents would see his position.
“But you will understand, right?” He asked. “I needed to tell a story.”

I need to tell you a story. With the love and support of my husband, I've decided to share it publicly. A very long time ago I ended a long emotionally and physically abusive relationship with a man I had been with for some time. One night I was at a show with a couple girlfriends in Hollywood, listening to a DJ we all loved. I knew there was a chance my ex could show up, but I felt protected with my girls around me. Without going into all the of the details, I will tell you that my ex did show up, and came up to me in the crowd. He's a big guy, taller than me. The minute he saw me, he picked me up with one hand by my hair and with his other hand, he grabbed me under my skirt by my vagina— my pussy?— and lifted me up off the floor, literally, and carried me, like something he owned, like a piece of trash, out of the club. His fingers were practically inside of me, his other hand wrapped tightly around my hair. I screamed and kicked and cried. He carried me this way, suspended by his hands, all the way across the room, pushing past people until he got to the front door. My friends ran after him, trying to stop him. We got to the front door and I thank God his brothers were also there and intervened. In the scuffle he grabbed at my clothes, trying to hold onto me, screaming at me, and inadvertently ripped off my grandmother’s necklace, which I was wearing. The rest of this night is a blur I do not remember. How I got out to the car. How I got away from him that night. I never returned for my necklace either. That part of my body, which the current Presidential Nominee of the United States Donald Trump recently described as something he’d like to grab a woman by, was bruised from my ex-boyfriend's violence for at least the next week. I had a hard time wearing jeans. I couldn’t sleep without a pillow between my legs to create space. To this day I remember that moment. I remember the shame. I am afraid my mom will read this post. I'm even more afraid that my father could ever know this story. That it would break his heart. I couldn't take that. But you understand, don't you? I needed to tell a story. Enjoy the debates tonight.
Tamblyn has been opened over this election season, once even defense against Trump shamers body after nude statues of the former “Apprentice” host appeared in several locations nationwide.
“The shame of the body is never right, even when it comes to trumpet” he wrote in a note on Instagram next to a photo of the statue covered with a sign that says: “Shame on me for my behavior not my body. ”
Despite his defense, Tamblyn is a proud supporter of Hillary Clinton and says he will stand with it come November.
