    People Are Saying That Rolf Harris Wouldn't Sexually Assault Vanessa Feltz Because "He Has Standards"

    Others are tweeting that she made the claim "for publicity."

    Presenter Vanessa Feltz has received a torrent of abuse on Twitter after she claimed she had been assaulted by Rolf Harris on live television.

    Feltz told the Daily Express that Harris, who has been jailed for nearly 6 years for indecent assaults against four girls, tried to put his hands up her dress during an interview for Channel 4's The Big Breakfast in 1996.

    Since Feltz made the claim, she said she received an "outpouring of misogyny and hatred."

    Others tweeted that if it were true, he could have claimed "insanity" and should be sectioned.

    If Rolf Harris really did grope Vanessa Feltz, then not only should he be incarcerated ... he should probably be sectioned.

    Some believed that even convicted sexual predators like Rolf Harris has "standards."

    Vanessa Feltz claims Rolf Harris groped her. Surely even Rolf Harris has standards?

    Feltz blasted the trolls, saying that their comments are why victims of sexual assault do not come forward to speak out.

    That didn't stop some tweeters believe that her claim was for publicity.

    Feltz said that because of this reaction, "you can see why people don't come forward. I'm 52 and I can handle myself so imagine if I was a seven-year-old child, or 12 or 17."
