Larry Nassar had child porn: Should Rita Wieber apologize for defending Nassar?

  • She should know better.

    Rita Wieber is a registered nurse and exercise physiologist, and also the mother of an elite gymnast. She is very much involved in the helping professions and should recognize that when even one person comes forward with an allegation of sexual abuse, it is essential to acknowledge its seriousness, investigate it appropriately and support the alleged victim. It is difficult when someone you deeply trust is accused of something so egregious. Nonetheless, the fact that she did not appear to voice support for the victims and instead made a statement that appeared defensive of her view of Nassar with no validation of the victim's statements is extremely troubling.

  • Yes, Rita should apologize.

    Its a shame that a woman who knows the pain of bearing a child would open her mouth ad support indispensable act of child porn. She should apologize to all parents and on the same note condemn the act with the strongest words possible. She should never say that she was misquoted.

  • She hurt the victims.

    Rita Wieber wrote that Nassar was professional when he treated U.S. Olympian Jordan Wieber. This was indirectly saying that she didn't believe what the victims had to say about their abuse. This was likely extremely painful for the victims that had to live through this abuse. Wiber should apologize so that the victims can begin to heal.

  • Yes, Rita Wieber should apologize for defending Larry Nassar.

    Yes, Rita Wieber should apologize for defending Larry Nassar. Child pornography is a cancer on humanity and an insidious force that must be controlled at all costs. Larry Nassar should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and Rita Weber should issue an apology for coming to his defense.

  • She shouldn't be blamed.

    It is very typical that abusers appear to be completely decent and kind people to those around them. When people hear abuse claims against this type of person, then it is very common that they come to their defence. It is not their fault that they were duped by these individuals. Therefore, it is not reasonable to expect her to apologise.
