This article applies Black feminist critiques of the anti-violence movement to the perpetrators accused by the contemporary #MeToo movement. I argue that the white men accused by #MeToo activate an intersectional flip of the ‘everywoman analysis’ to contend that ‘every man could be accused.’ In asserting a proximity to Black male victimhood, white male perpetrators claim innocence and exonerate themselves from community accountability.
