Pamela Anderson is sharing a message of hope upon learning that longtime friend Julian Assange cannot be extradited to the U.S. On Monday, a British judge ruled that the WikiLeaks founder, who is imprisoned in London, should not be extradited overseas to face charges of breaking a spying law and conspiring to obtain secret U.S. documents by hacking government computers.
Anderson reacted to the news on social media.
"A special sunrise for my dear friend #JulianAssange - (not to be extradited) stay tuned, the fight is not over - but, a hopeful moment to breathe in- I can only imagine Julian (in court, still in that mask), taking that breath.. #humanrights #freespeech #pardonassange," she wrote in a post that included a video of a sunrise on the beach.
Anderson has been a vocal proponent of Assange for years. Last month the "Baywatch" star took to Twitter to draw the attention of President Donald Trump in a call for Assange to receive pardon. In her post, Anderson shared two black-and-white images. One featured her in a bikini holding a sign that read: "Bring Julian Assange Home Australia." In the second photo, Anderson holds a sign that states: "I am Julian Assange #FreeAssange."
"@POTUS please #pardonjulianassange," she captioned the images.
The nature of Anderson and Assange's relationship has been one of interest. In 2018, rumors of a romance between the two drew the attention of FBI, which said it wanted to interview Anderson about her time spent with Assange, The Sun reported at the time.
Anderson has been a frequent visitor of the WikiLeaks founder since they were introduced in 2014, and she spoke about their relationship in a 2018 interview with "OBJECTified."
"He's definitely an interesting person, and there's definitely a romantic kind of connection 'cause it's a romantic struggle," she said.
