During the book’s release week in September 2009, Mackenzie, 62, read an excerpt from her memoir out loud in front of cameras on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

”I woke up that night from a blackout to find myself having sex with my father. I don’t know how it started.

It didn’t happen every day, it didn’t happen every week, but it certainly happened and happened many times.

It became a consensual relationship over time. I can’t believe I’m the only one this happened to,” she read to the talk show host and her live audience.

The Orange Is The New Black actress claimed the alleged incident first happened in a hotel room during the 1970’s but the rape continued on for another decade.

During the latest episode of the Behind The Velvet Rope podcast hosted by David Yontef, Mackenzie revealed that her chat with Oprah is what made her realize she was sexually abused during the dynamic she previously thought was consensual.

“When I wrote [my memoir], I wasn’t Googling, أنت تعرف, ‘am I allowed to say this was a relationship? Or should I call it sexual abuse?’ Because I did call it a consensual relationship in the initial book.

“And then when I was on Oprah and all of the massive amount of press that I did in the days after the release of the book, I was inundated on all social media platforms with private messages saying, ‘this is not a consensual relationship. There is no such thing as consent because the power dynamic between a parent and a child is so specific and there there’s no such thing as consent.

“I really had to rethink because I thought that I consented because I didn’t scream and yell. I thought that I had consented for a myriad of reasons. And what I learned is that I had been groomed.

“And it was a media s**t storm. Pardon my French, but I really didn’t expect that kind of backlash. I really didn’t. Maybe I was naive.”

INITIAL BACKLASH

Reflecting on the reaction she received when she went public with the claims, the American Graffiti star said she assumed she would be met with “understanding” from others but she made it clear that “did not happen.”

“Everyone was just like, ‘the allegations are shocking.’ And then people would say something like, ‘well, بلى, of course you waited until he was dead because, so he couldn’t refute.

And of course, had I done it when he was alive, they would have said, ‘why don’t you wait till he was dead? أنت تعرف? So it’s a rock, meets a hard place.

“I believe that if [her book] High On Arrival had come out in the current climate of Me Too, the backlash would have been very, جدا, almost like a whisper, because this was prior to the Me Too movement. Prior to ‘everyone should have a platform and be believed.’

“And so, أنت تعرف, it was just a little too early in the timeliness, the timeline of understanding how to treat a teenager with a substance use disorder who is famous.
