In today’s bizarre news, Pamela Anderson is attempting to use Kanye West’s clout to help Julian Assange become, um, freed?
TMZ obtained a letter the former “Baywatch” star wrote asking ‘Ye what he thinks of Assange. "I support him and I know you value Free Speech," she wrote in part. Anderson says Assange - who's claimed political asylum at London's Ecuadorian Embassy - is in grave danger "for exposing corruption in governments.” She also thinks people are trying to kill him.
Apparently, Pam Anderson has been cut off from all means of communication with the WikiLeaks founder. Her plan? Get Kanye to sway enough public opinion in support of Assange.
"I've always supported your 'no filter' - you speak your mind,” she writes. “And you make an impact. I'm sure a lot of people feel like you - They just are stuck in what society says is OK to say." She also thinks he’d admire him after just some basic research on his background.
