Before Asia Argento was accused of having sex with a 17-year-old named Jimmy Bennett in 2013, she might have been known as Rose McGowan’s fellow #MeToo soldier and friend. But ever since Asia began to fight against the accusations that she’s a sexual predator, Rose has slowly (very slowly) moved away from her. Eventually Rose accused Asia of being a major creep and liar. Asia isn’t happy that Rose has been running her mouth, and is threatening Rose with a lawsuit.
When The New York Times came out with an expozay (I’m too lazy to copy and paste the accent mark) saying Asia Argento is like the very sexual predators she is fighting to take down, her fellow #MeToo fighter Rose McGowan tweeted (and deleted) that everyone needs to wait until more information comes out and to be gentle with Asia. That tweet went down about as well as your lunch while reading the allegations against Asia. Rose has taken some time to gather all the info, I guess, because she has now removed her white gloves and ripped the “Handle With Care” label off of Asia. Rose released a statement last night, telling Asia to pull an opposite Harvey Weinstein and take responsibility.
One of the many (many feels like an understatement) women who came forward last fall with allegations against Harvey Weinstein was actress Asia Argento. She was also a very outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement. However, because the universe likes to keep things complicated for us humans, it turns out Asia has been accused of sexual assault herself.
Back in January 2017, airline workers found Rose McGowan’s wallet after she left the plane at Washington Dulles International Airport, and inside they found cocaine. Rose swore the coke wasn’t hers, and claimed it was planted by one of Harvey Weinstein’s minions. Regardless of what Rose wanted the law to believe, the law has recently determined that she was in possession of coke that day.
Back in February, Rose McGowan’s book tour for Brave showed signs of possibly going down in flames. So Rose decided to take a little time out from the spotlight. Rose is back to promote the next episodes of her E! docuseries Citizen Rose, and clearly she’s been storing thoughts like a squirrel stores nuts for the winter, because she’s got a lot to say.
Because 2018 clearly doesn’t have enough assholes of its own, 2004 has kindly offered to let us take one of its biggest off its hands for free. You guys remember Vincent Gallo, right? Greasy looking fellow who said Roger Ebert had “the physique of a slave-trader” and put a hex on his colon saying he hoped he got cancer for panning The Brown Bunny? No? He’s the guy that auctioned himself off as a male escort saying “Heavy set, older, red heads and even black chicks can have me if they can pay the bill” but said “no way Jose” to gay men or transgender women but “lesbos” were ok? Yeah, that guy. He’s back to talk about Harvey Weinstein, piss on Roger Ebert’s grave and compare himself to Donald Trump in an essay posted to AnOther Man.
