David Hasselhoff: I Am Fighting Oppression Of Women In Iran With Old Baywatch Episodes

Is there anything David Hasselhoff can't do?

Hasselhoff believes [Baywatch] is providing feisty female role models to women in the Middle East. He enthuses, "They're sitting there oppressed. They can't vote, can't do anything! "Then they go, 'This is the world! Why can't I go out there.' They pull back their burkas and they've got blonde hair."

I'm not sure how many Persian women have blonde hair, nor why golden locks should necessarily be a sign of courage or confidence.

Of course, fighting tyranny isn't new to David Hasselhoff. Remember, it was a pop song of his that brought down the Berlin wall.
