Kat Von D insisted she’s not anti-Semitic and she’s not an anti-vaxxer as she finally responded to the rumours in a new YouTube clip.
The makeup and tattoo artist spoke about the sexual harassment she endured on “Miami Ink”, as well as tracing the Nazi rumours all the way back to her time on the show.
She explained how one of her former colleagues attempted to sabotage her career, while showing her pictures of his penis and grabbing her breasts during a night out.
Von D recalled how “there were so many times that he said things to me that were so repulsive, I could never repeat those things out loud.”
The tattoo guru alleged that the man in question thought that her spinoff show “LA Ink” might eventually replace his show, with the whole thing coinciding with a picture being shown of her with a forged anti-Semitic message on it.
Von D continued, “I have no idea who actually forged the message, but what I do know is that the man who treated me so terribly on set took this 8×10 and threatened the network, saying that if they don’t cancel ‘LA Ink’ that he would go to all these different media outlets and release the 8×10 with the forged message on it.
“After all these years, this is the first time that I’m actually talking about this publicly. Honestly, I’ve been dreading making this video, but I know that it has to be done. I have to do it. I can’t just keep letting other people write this narrative that’s so inaccurate and so false and so awful. None of this feels good to relive.”
Von D also slammed the anti-vaxxer claims, telling the camera: “What I am is a first-time mother.”
