She also posted on her Instagram story, “As someone who has held the position of SA, I can tell you that it is a serious accusation to level against another person. On the day of my birthday, I had quite a few drinks, and I remember being very flirtatious and having a good time.”
“The internet took what they saw in a video and labeled it SA before I could even process. I do not believe I was SA, but I do know how uncomfortable I am.”
