‘This is not what a rapist looks like’

A student at Warwick University has caused uproar after he rejected an invite to a workshop on the importance of consent because he ‘didn’t look like a rapist’.

George Lawson, 19, who lives in Rugby, posted an article titled ‘Why I don’t need consent lessons’ along with a photograph of him holding a sign stating, ‘This is not what a rapist looks like’.

Following a backlash on social media and from his fellow students, the 19-year-old told FEMAIL that he stands by his article but admitted the sign in the photo was a ‘massive faux pas’.
