In a passionate Instagram video, Abbie first shared a news clipping about That 70s Show star Danny Masterson being charged with three counts of rape, before addressing the wild statistic.

“I’ve been saying for weeks, nay months, that 40 per cent of men are paedophiles,” Abbie says.

“F***ing quote me on it, but there is a stat somewhere that almost half [of men] are f***ed.”

Abbie admitted she did not have any data or statistical evidence to back up her claims.

“Do I have data? No. Do I have evidence? No. Am I constantly proved right? Yes.”

“Maybe it’s 40 per cent of men in power, maybe it’s 40 per cent of white men in power, maybe it’s 40 per cent of celebrities,” she then added.

One follower asked the 25-year-old why she was so “cynical”, to which Abbie responded: “Because I would say at least half of the women I know have a story about a man 15 years older than them messaging them when they were a teenager.”

After some of her followers questioned Abbie’s claims, she replied: “Interesting the only people denying this claim are men.”

She went on to elaborate on how “big and pervasive this issue is.”

According to statistics by Darkness To Light, an organisation dedicated to supporting sexual abuse victims, “about one in seven girls and one in 25 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18.”

“About 60 per cent of children who are sexually abused are abused by people the family trusts.”
