Maitland Ward Says Billie Eilish Bad Porn Experience Is Her Parents' Fault

Maitland Ward has blamed Billie Eilish's parents for her having a bad experience with pornography.

Earlier this month, the 20-year-old singer revealed that she first watched it when she was just 11 years old and that it warped her view on sex and left her having nightmares.

Now former Boy Meets World star Maitland has given her view on the issues Eilish has found herself facing, telling TMZ: "Well first of all, the problem with that is why was she watching violent porn at age 11? Who was watching over her? Like does she have parental figures in her life?

"She should be blaming her parents, that's abuse. A child should not be watching porn ever at that age.

"She said she was watching - I heard - like abusive porn or violent. Porn isn't something that is supposed to be sex education for people, it's entertainment for adults and that's what we do."

Giving her opinion on the 'right' age to watch porn, she went on: "Well, 20, that's good. I mean, I can't say I didn't take a peak when I was 16 or 17 but to watch it completely that's not right and at 11, that's completely wrong.

"And her parents should be blamed for that, or whoever was her caretakers.

"It's not something that's supposed to teach you how to have sex. And then she said she had bad experiences in sex, everybody as a teenager had bad experiences in sex. They're not going to have great sex, they don't know what they're doing."

Speaking about whether she thinks Billie's comments could impact the porn industry, she added: "I do think it is very detrimental to it, and she has a voice like that for so many young people.

"But I do believe people are still watching it and adults still enjoy it. I don't think she's necessarily going to sway them away from it.

"But it's sad that she would put a sort of stigma on the porn industry just because she had a personal experience that was very abusive and detrimental.

"It's her own thing, it's not like it's the porn industry's problem."
