Remember that scene in the sixth season of Game Of Thrones when Daenerys becomes queen of the Dothraki by burning the whole fucking Khal house down? The Hollywood equivalent is going down right now with Rose McGowan. Continue reading
Rose McGowan has been spitting hot truth on Twitter for a while now, but the implosion of Harvey Weinstein’s career has caused people to really pay attention. As it turns out, Twitter hasn’t been so crazy about what Rose has been serving, and they suspended her account.
As many have already done, Ben Affleck spoke out yesterday with shock and horror in response to the dozens of allegations made against Harvey Weinstein. There was at least one person who wasn’t buying Ben’s statement, and that’s Rose McGowan.
Sorry, I should clarify: a whole lot of women and a couple dudes. For some reason, the men of Hollywood aren’t exactly rushing to pipe up with their thoughts about the recent dump of sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Which I’m sure is just because they dropped their cellphones in the toilet and have no current means of communication, and not because they had been benefiting from doing business with the alleged creepy shower enthusiast. But for now, we’ve got the thoughts from plenty of actresses and a couple actors, including George Clooney.
You gotta be a new kind of dickhead to answer a claim of sexual harassment by insinuating that your accuser is most likely lying because she’s had a tough life including getting sexually abused. Harvey Weinstein IS that new kind of dickhead.
Harvey Weinstein talked to the New York Post about all of the allegations that came out in The New York Times yesterday and he refuted Ashley Judd’s claim that he sexually harassed her during a hotel room meeting in 1997. Oddly, this was in concert with the lengthy and rambling apology he issued to the New York Times for “bad behavior.” So you did harass women just not Ashley? It’s like the flipside of the boy who cried wolf. It’s the boy who cried “wanna watch me shower?”
As expected, The New York Times published an exposé about how movie mogul and Miramax/Weinstein Company founder Harvey Weinstein is allegedly a serial sexual harasser who has been using his power to creep on and prey on women for nearly three decades. This will come as the opposite of shocking to anyone who has followed the not-so-secret gross adventures of Harvey’s casting couch. The Times spoke to several actresses and former employees, and painted Harvey as a white Bill Cosby sans the whole “drugging” thing.
