Sebastian Stan Blasted for Tagging Pamela Anderson in Celebratory Instagram Post About ‘Pam & Tommy’s Emmy Noms After Show ‘Violated’ Her

Sebastian Stan was called out on social media after tagging Pamela Anderson in a celebratory Instagram post about Pam & Tommy's Emmy nominations.

Last week, the Hulu miniseries, which explored Anderson and Tommy Lee's relationship and the leak of their sex tape, was nominated in several categories for the 2022 Emmy Awards. Notably, Stan — who played Lee — is up for Best Actor in a Limited Series, Movie, or Anthology. Lily James — who played Anderson — is up for Best Actress in a Limited Series, Movie or Anthology.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe star took to Instagram to celebrate the show's success.

"So grateful and thrilled to be a part of this EPIC PAM AND TOMMY recognition," Stan gushed. He proceeded to congratulate a slew of people involved. The message ended with commentary about the leaked tape that ultimately defined Anderson and Lee's relationship.

"#PAMANDTOMMY is about a crime that took place without Consent," he wrote. "It was a crime on privacy, a crime on love, a crime on family, and a crime that we were ALL a culprit of, as media and audience combined, and it’s now more timely than ever. I hope this can only help continue the conversation we had hoped to bring to light, and that we can remember to re-examine our projections and our salacious attitudes not only towards @pamelaanderson and @tommylee, but also towards ourselves and our exploitation of one another."

Stan tagged Anderson's official Instagram account in his caption. He also tagged her in the accompanying photo — a still from the show.

The decision to include the model in his celebrations has been called into question by some on social media. Although she hasn't outright commented on the show, several of her friends have claimed that it was made without her consent and is causing her pain.

Courtney Love blasted the show in a post on Facebook. Vanity Fair noted that Love claimed the series was causing her friend to experience "complex trauma."

Another source told Entertainment Tonight that the show was made without Anderson's consent. They noted that the actress still "feels so violated to this day" by the way that her tape was stolen and leaked.

"The upcoming Pam & Tommy Hulu series has been very painful for Pamela Anderson and for anyone that loves her," the said. "It is shocking that this series is allowed to happen without her approval."

Anderson reportedly did not watch Pam & Tommy. She has not commented on the show's Emmy nominations. BuzzFeed News noted that she is working with Netflix on a documentary about her life.

Although Anderson herself hasn't spoken out, users on social media called out Stan for involving her in the series and reminding her of its success.

"I love Sebastian Stan. TILL THE END OF THE LINE. But for him to say that Pam & Tommy was a story about a crime that took place w/o consent & a crime of privacy even though they never got a CONSENT from Pamela Anderson is a massive joke to me," one person wrote on Twitter.

"Crazy how sebastian stan can write four paragraphs on how pam and tommy is a show about consent and then in that same post celebrates his drinking buddy tommy and tags pamela anderson whose expressed how traumatic she finds the show," another tweeted.

"The nerve of sebastian stan to tag pamela anderson in his Instagram story about consent," another wrote. "U simply have to laugh."
