Sex Abuse Victim: Pope Opens His Door to Celebs But Ignores Us

An Argentine woman who says she suffered sexual abuse at the hands of a cleric in the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires β€” where Pope Francis once served as the cardinal archbishop β€” said the pope ignored victims of sexual abuse while welcoming celebrities like environmental crusader Leonardo DiCaprio with open arms.

The Catholic Church has been rocked lately by a widespread sex abuse scandal, about which the Pope has refused to comment.

β€œHe receives all the celebrities, like Leonardo DiCaprio, and opens his door to them. And for us, not even a quick letter to say he was sorry,” one of the victims told an interviewer with the French news program Cash Investigation in 2017.
