Linda Fairstein, the prosecutor who is now facing backlash after her handling of the 'Central Park Five' case, has resigned from several charity boards.
Fairstein faced backlash and calls to boycott her and her literary works after Ava DuVernay's 'When They See Us' aired on Netflix last week.
In a letter acquired by The Post to the chairman of the Safe Horizon victims-services agency, Fairstein said she wanted to spare it further grief through association with her.
“I do not want to become a lightning rod to inflict damage on this organization, because of those now attacking my record of fighting for social justice for more than 45 years,” Fairstein wrote.
“I know the terrible inequities of race, gender, and class that have been a tragically pervasive part of our American criminal justice system for centuries,” she continued.
“I have dedicated my career, and my professional and personal passion, to fighting against injustice — and much of that fight has been conducted for and on behalf of the staff and directors at Safe Horizon,” she added.
For now, Fairstein's tears of privilege are fooling no-one.
