Rose McGowan Got Into A Messy Screaming Fight With A Trans Woman During An Event For Her Book (UPDATE)
Rose McGowan has been really busy promoting her book Brave, her E! reality show and talking about how she’s leading her #ROSEARMY to fight the rapists. She’s been everywhere talking about sexual abuse in Hollywood and her own experiences, like how she was molested by a very famous man when she was only 15 and how the iconic dress she wore to the 1998 MTV VMAs was a protest against The Monster (aka Harvey Weinstein) she says raped her. Many have praised Rose for fighting the fight against predators, but others (like Meryl Streep) haven’t been happy about some of things she’s said. One of Rose’s critics came at her during an event for her book at the Barnes & Noble in Manhattan’s Union Square on Wednesday night, and it turned into a raging dumpster fire of a wreck. It was like a scene out of Tumblr Fight: Live!
Rose McGowan’s E! docuseries Citizen Rose premiered last night, which means Harvey Weinstein, or “the monster” as she calls him, was bound to get a new batch of bad Google alerts. Harvey’s team attempted to do some damage control by digging through his email archives and found what they consider to be a conscience-clearing conversation with Ben Affleck.
Rose McGowan has been fighting a tireless fight against sexual predators, and it turns out that fight is expensive. Rose was at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena, CA yesterday to promote her new E! show Citizen Rose, and she talked about her current career as a “monster” slayer. It’s too bad Rose can’t collect a salary for being the general of the #RoseArmy, because it sounds like she could really use the extra cash.
One of the millions of allegations against Harvey Weinstein was Rose McGowan’s claim that he raped her at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival and gave her $100,000 in hush money. Not long after Rose said fuck it to any possible NDAs and said that Harvey did rape her, her former boyfriend and Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez chimed in, saying he and Rose plotted to sell Grindhouse to Dimension as an act of revenge. Except according to Rose, Robert’s story needs a little footnote about how she believes he manipulated her by using her assault against her.
The Hollywood Hunger Games are being played out here in these streets and most of the town doesn’t even know that they pulled the short straw and have been reaped. Shoot a cannon for Meryl Streep and Rose McGowan. Both were critical players in the nasty game of “she knew” that The Guardian reports was devised by a right wing guerilla artist who goes by the name of Sabo. Turns out, the posters that went up all over Los Angeles this week bearing Meryl’s face with a red banner reading “she knew” across her eyes, were in retaliation for her politics. Her comments about Harvey Weinstein and the subsequent backlash were merely the fuel.
…does Rose McGowan have an alibi??
Meryl Streep spent the last few days sitting by the phone waiting to hear a call from her second-favorite Charmed actress (sorry, Rose, Shannen Doherty will always be top of the hot mess heap!). Rose never called Meryl, but now we know what she could have been doing instead. A slew of posters have popped up around Los Angeles accusing Meryl of being a pupil at the Ivanka Trump Skewl of Complicit Hos. Continue reading
