Shaun Robinson accuses Access Hollywood alum Billy Bush of causing ‘pain’ with his ‘white privilege’


FORMER Access Hollywood host Shaun Robinson has accused her former co-star Billy Bush of "causing pain with his white privilege," and referencing the "pain" he had caused her for over a year.

Shaun took to Twitter on Wednesday to retweet Billy's video of him discussing the George Floyd protests that have swept across the country, and add her own commentary, revealing that she had struggled during her time on the series.

The 57-year-old wrote: "Good Morning @thebillybush.

"I appreciate you being an ally NOW.

"But, if you want to talk about the pain #WhitePrivilege causes African Americans, you should probably also talk to the black woman who sat next to you on the set of #AccessHollywood for year."

Billy is now working for Extra after he was fired by network NBC following a leaked 2005 recording which showed Billy laughing along to the future President Trump bragging about groping women.

The infamous recording came from an unaired segment of an episode of Access Hollywood, a celebrity gossip show Billy fronted for 15 years between 2001 and 2016.

In it, he can be heard laughing as Trump talks about fame enabling him to grope and try to have sex with women.

"Grab them by the p*****. You can do anything", Trump added, as he also talked about trying to seduce Access Hollywood employee Nancy O'Dell.

Shaun worked for the show between 1999 and 2015.
