Guns N' Roses 🌹 guitarist Slash says he fully supports the #MeToo movement but is worried about "false accusations".
"The problem is that you could be falsely accused of something, but it almost doesn’t matter – it’s out there,” Slash pointed out in a new interview with Classic Rock magazine.
“Even if you were to get your name cleared, the damage is already done. And that’s pretty sad.”
But Slash added that he "think the #MeToo movement is definitely justified – it’s actually way overdue" and that it’s complicated "in the context of being in a fucking rock and roll band.”
He also admitted: “Fortunately, I’m taken, so I’m not dealing with all that, but I have to admit there were times I looked into my past and [thought]: ‘Well that was consensual.'”
