When Corsie woke up, the tweet had gone viral, and she remembers an influx of replies from people, some applauding her bravery and encouraging her to name this police officer, and some attacking her, claiming it was a "made up story by a filmmaker." Sound familiar? #MeToo caused similar reactions. One writer argued
that "the movement reveals feminism’s obsession with victimhood." A bold YouTuber
said women were using #MeToo to "show off to their girlfriends" that men have tried to seduce them. At the time, Corsie barely had any Twitter followers, but once outlets from Buzzfeed to People
began reaching out to her for comment, "it was like all the sudden the secret couldn’t be a secret anymore, because it's out there," she says.
