TikToker @cornbreadasserole was the first among many women to come forward and comment on the issue. In the video, she claimed that Andrew Callaghan “wore” her down and “coerced” her into getting intimate on the night of the alleged assault. She said in the video:
"I will tell you that he did eventually get consent and that’s the main point is that he eventually got consent because he wore me down. He told me he needed a place to stay for the night. He had some sort of falling out with one of his crew members or whatever and I was very clear about the fact that we are not hooking up."
"He gets in my bed and wears me down to the point where I eventually do agree to do things that I wasn’t proud of and I wasn’t proud of them and thought it was my fault for so long that I continued to be nice to him."
She added that she eventually gave consent to Andrew Callaghan to get the night “over with” so he could leave the next day, but that “it doesn’t discount the fact that I told him no.”
In the video, the TikToker also claimed that she was inebriated the night the alleged assault took place.
