Ashley Judd In Hospital Following A Catastrophic Accident

Ashley Judd has been taken to hospital following a catastrophic accident in the Congo.

The Kiss the Girls actress announced in an Instagram Live that she was resting in a trauma unit in beautiful South Africa after sustaining extensive catastrophic injuries during a rainforest excursion.

Ashley Judd said that she’d been travelling in the Congo when she tripped over a fallen tree.

She recalled lying on the forest floor for five hours and wailing like an animal while being transported back to her camp by her Congolese brothers.

She added that she faded in and out of consciousness during the journey out of the rainforest and to the capital of Kinshasa,
and had kept herself awake by reciting Bible passages.

She was eventually taken to hospital in South Africa after what she described as an especially frightening experience.

In the Instagram Live, Ashley Judd stated that the accident was a reminder of her privilege as a person of means travelling in the Congo, explaining that the difference between a Congolese person and herself was disaster insurance that enabled her, 55 hours after her accident, to get to an operating table in South Africa.

Ashley Judd, who’s the daughter of country singer Naomi Judd, has appeared in movies including Heat, Double Jeopardy and Bug.

In 2018, she sued convicted rapist and former film magnate Harvey Weinstein for destroying her career after she rebuffed his sexual overtures and scuppering a chance to star in the Lord of the Rings trilogy by portraying her as difficult to work with.

In 2020, an appeals court allowed Ashley Judd to pursue her sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

The thing is, if Ashley Judd had a catastrophic injury, she wouldn’t have been live streaming on Instagram, would she?

I’m not sure if this was a huge catastrophe, although I’m sure it must have been a painful one, and severe enough to have had to have surgery, but a massive catastrophic injury would have been more like spinal cord damage or brain injury.

Perhaps what the doctors had to do to her leg means that her leg will never be the same again, and she was in a country with poor healthcare and high-risk infection.

There’s no telling what the actual injury was, it just said that she tripped and had to be carried out, however, she made sure she let everyone know how her white privilege along with disaster insurance enabled her to go to South Africa for treatment, even though numerous people in the Congo are sick and can’t afford health care.

And that’s great – good for her for highlighting her obvious white privilege, but massive and catastrophic was a tad hyperbolic and overly dramatic when compared to people facing life-threatening injuries.

The article was a complete clickbait pile of junk, and it didn’t even say what her injury was, but they did try their best at making it sound like she was on the verge of dying, and what did her past sexual assault and lawsuit towards Harvey Weinstein have to do with her accident – clearly, someone was trying to profit off her history.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
