Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui's the latest celebrity to come out in support of Kesha following the verdict of her lawsuit against alleged sexual abuser Dr. Luke; with the singer taking to Tumblr to say that Kesha shouldn't be 'forced to work in an environment she doesn't feel comfortable in."
Speaking out against both 5H producer Dr. Luke (he did 'This Is How We Roll' from the Reflection album) and her band's record label Sony, Lauren likened Kesha's situation to 'slave labour' and admitted she doesn't understand why 'someone can't quit one company and go to the next' as the star remains under contract with Sony Music.
Speaking on Tumblr, Lauren said: "I'm so sick of the misconception of her being of high status to begin with. We're fucking human beings that get fucked over by contracts with a bunch of people making puppets of us (not by fucking choice but by pure promise of dream) she was a real girl, with a real dream, and trusted a real man, with a real scheme. Like people need to separate the "celebrity" from this. She's a human who is being forced to work in an environment she doesn't feel COMFORTABLE in.
"This is basically slave labor bro..what is she supposed to do? Puppeteer around while everyone around her questions her personal experience (which was probably already traumatic to begin with) and whether it happened or not..or whether it's a legitimate enough reason why a woman can't be granted safe haven from just feeling threatened. That's some crazy shit man. Even if her accusations weren't legitimate, what makes any other human deem when they can want to work for a company? How is it part of a law system that someone can't quit one company and go to the next? Especially when experiencing sexual harassment.
"HOW THE F*** does a court of MEN get to decide whether she experienced sexual assault..or psychological assault. Who is to deem that acceptable or not..this is insane." [sic].
