Droves of people have taken to Twitter to share why they didn’t immediately report sexual misconduct at the time of the abuse — including Hollywood stars Daryl Hannah, Ashley Judd, “2 Broke Girls” creator Whitney Cummings, “Riverdale” star Lili Reinhart and more.

The hashtag “#WhyIDidntReport” trended on the platform Friday after President Trump cast doubt on Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Ford because she did not immediately report the alleged sexual assault at the time of the “attack” she said took place decades ago.

Trump tweeted: “I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!”

People who identify as victims of sexual misconduct — along with their supporters — took Trump to task:

One frequently-shared testimonial came from Atlanta journalist Thomas Roberts, who said he was sexually abused by a priest when he was just 14 years old:

Another journalist, David Leavitt, said he didn’t report sexual misconduct because “I was four, and he said he’d kill me.”

Actress Alyssa Milano, who said she was sexually assaulted twice, responded directly to Trump, telling him to “listen the f— up…  I never filed a police report and it took me 30 years to tell me parents.”

“Scandal” star Bellamy Young shared the hashtag, saying she didn’t report sexual misconduct because “I was too young to know it was wrong yet.”
