Ryan Phillippe defends his trip to Saudi Arabia



Ryan Phillippe was one of the many uh "influencers" accused of taking a trip to promote the "image rehab" of Saudi Arabia, a country that is stricken with human rights violations, including lgbt and womens rights. He took to social media to defend his actions in a ~mature and ~sober manner.





In Saudi Arabia, it is illegal to be gay; where the crime of being gay can lead to execution. Phillippe has starred in many films with a gay cult following, including 1998's 54 and One Life To Live where he played the first gay teenager in a daytime soap opera.

In 2017, Phillippe defended himself against abuse claims by an ex-girlfriend by saying, "As a man, raised by women, in a household where women's rights, feminism, and advocacy were very muc at the forefront, I am sickened that my name can be found in any article where domestic violence of any kind of alleged."
