Jimmy Savile was a star but he did bad things. He targeted children and young people, both men and women. He sexually abused them, this means he was touching them on their private parts and raped them or forced them to have sex.
I am very angry and upset about this, how did he get away with it?
Because he had friends in high places who covered it up.
I am disgusted about what happened, I feel sorry for the victims. It is hard for them to speak up because they are scarred and they don’t know who to tell. They might worry that their family and friends won’t believe them.
A lot of the victims were disabled people, it is even harder for people who have learning disabilities to speak up about abuse.
Also a lot of the abuse happened in the 1970s and 1980s when people were not aware of sexual abuse as much as they are now.
In Britain we need to get better at helping victims to speak up about abuse.
