In the interview, the Absolutely Fabulous star says, How can wolf whistling be offensive to women? Its a compliment. Theyre saying Cor you look all right, darlin. Whats wrong with that? The 70-year-old actress insists that people were tougher when she was a young model in the 60s saying, You knew someone would whistle in the street and you werent insulted. She says photographers were ruder back then and would say to her, You look frightful, whats the matter with you? You look podgy, you look fat as a pig. It was good-natured banter, you kind of got on with it, it didnt upset you. Lumley explains, We have become more sensitive flowers nowadays, people are very offended by everything. People took to Twitter in response to the remarks, with many users calling them not absolutely fabulous. Joanna Lumley has clearly never been whistled at whilst by herself at night by a group of men because it doesnt seem like a compliment then, says Twitter user gmountjoy1. Julia Hartley-Brewer also posted on Twitter, Wolf-whistling is a compliment, says Joanna Lumley. Yes, but some of us dont need that reassurance from random men. Setting us back on messages we are trying to deliver about respect and rejecting the objectification of women @JoannaLumley. Not helpful, posted Janette Thompson. This isnt the first time Lumley has found herself in hot water for making some controversial comments about women. In 2013, Lumley faced backlash after she advised women to dress properly and behave in order to avoid sexual assault. Dont be sick in the gutter at midnight in a silly dress with no money to get a taxi home, because somebody will take advantage of you, either theyll rape you, or theyll knock you on the head or theyll rob you, she said.
