Of course she's a hypocrite. She made herself a leading voice on it, but when her pal gets credibly accused, she decided maybe it's not so important after all. That's not just me, but the MeToo Movement so called leaders have been blasting her big time about it.
It's not deflection, it just shows when you bring out a lot of these accusations to light they aren't exactly one sided by the man and the woman played a part in it, too.
It's never "OK" for any woman to suffer abuse, but it speaks a lot of credibility when someone's main talent is sex appeal. Of course opinions vary, but I don't think she would have ever made it or stayed there on talent alone and definitely without Rusev.
