Krystall Ball an emerging talk show host has alleged that the radio legend Rush Limbaugh commented saying that “she is a slut,” which he portrayed her falsely.
Rush slammed her last month on his show that Krystal who is a co-host of “The Hill Newspaper,” posed naked when she was a teenager. Hearing this, Krystal stated that she never went naked and “Slut-shaming is an old tactic in American politics, in world politics,” Ball added. “It’s used to say that women aren’t worthy of being anything other than sexual objects and frankly, its bulls***. I didn’t want to let it slide without calling it out.”
She stated that probably Rush Limbaugh was talking about her pic that was posted in 2010 where her former husband was commenting wittily on her fully clothed pic where she was seen holding a sex toy in a party which was after her graduation.
In 2010, Krystal was representing congress in Virginia and said that: “And I have a message for any young woman who is thinking about running for office and has ever attended a costume party with her husband or done anything stupid on camera. Run for office. Fight for this country. Don’t let this sort of tactic deter you.”
To this, Rush cleared the air that he was certainly talking about the same picture and he gave a sarcastic statement that she was a “hostette” and former “infobabe on PMSNBC.” He also added saying that: “I was under the impression that when she ran for Congress … some nude photos of her from social media had surfaced.” “Well, it turns out that that wasn’t quite true.”
But an official rectification was made on September 4th stating that “Ball never posed nude.” Though Krystal did not respond to these allegations initially, she later said that she never bothered to claim it.
As of Limbaugh, it’s not his first time that he is getting into a controversy.
