Channing Tatum recognises

Channing Tatum was in Cannes this week because he’s launching his own vodka label, Born and Bred. During a Facebook interview with Cosmpolitan, he was asked about sex and how he and his wife, Jenna Dewan, keep it fresh. What’s more interesting is what he had to say about the Stanford rape case. I don’t want to stop talking about this. Brock Allen Turner was convicted for raping an unconscious woman, and there were two witnesses, and he was sentenced to only six months in county jail, and he and his friends and family still think his great crime was just getting drunk. It’s vile and absurd and Channing thinks so too:
“I think it’s a horrible idea to let someone off because possibly of what they are going to be capable of doing. If you start doing that, where do you stop? Where is that line? I don’t think it’s right. I think he should have been punished, personally. I just couldn’t believe it. It’s like if you killed someone and got caught red-handed and just because you went to a nice school, and you were a good swimmer, you somehow get a lesser sentence. That just doesn’t make any sense.”
It doesn’t make any sense. It’s outrageous. And it’s important for all of us to call it what it was – it was outrageous and it was rape – not just women but men too. That men will also not accept that sh-t should go down this way. That men like Channing Tatum give voice to that.
