And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery, but you I love, .@AsiaArgento#RoseArmyhttps://twitter.com/asiaargento/status/949930514802249728 …
After the Golden Globes, Rose McGowan called the whole thing ‘Hollywood Fakery’ as various actors and actresses wore black to protest in silence. Isn’t that the whole problem to begin with? Too many were SILENT!
If these Hollywood actors and actresses really cared about Rose McGowan and the other victims wouldn’t they ALL come forward and speak out? Why the silent protest? That to me just indicates there are many other scumbags and perverts where Harvey Weinstein came from.
McGowan, the 44-year-old star of the television show “Charmed” accused Weinstein of raping her in the 1990s, People reported.
“I have been silenced for 20 years. I have been slut-shamed. I have been harassed. I have been maligned and you know what? I’m just like you,” McGowan said in October. “What happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in society and it cannot stand and it will not stand.”
In December, McGowan first expressed her feelings about the planned “silent protest” for the Golden Globes.
“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,” she wrote on Twitter, referring to Weinstein.
“YOUR SILENCE is THE problem,” McGowan continued. “You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa,” she added, referencing the fashion line owned by Weinstein’s estranged wife Georgina Chapman.
Then, McGowan posted this on Twitter:
On Sunday, McGowan responded to a tweet by Italian actress Asia Argento, who also accused Weinstein of sexual harassment. She reportedly worked with the New York City Police Department in 2015 to record Weinstein making unwanted sexual advances and admit to groping her.
McGowan Was the FIRST to break the silence!
“No one should forget that you were the first one who broke the silence,” Argento wrote.
“Anyone who tries to diminish your work is a troll and an enemy of the movement. You gave me the courage to speak out. I am on your side until I die,” McGowan added.
McGowan replied, “And I love all of you who’ve been there since the beginning and to those who’ll join along the journey. We’ve only just begun.”
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who dedicated a portion of acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes to speaking out against sexual harassment, was accused in November of being a Weinstein enabler.
Though Rose McGowan was outspoken on her stance against the all-black dress code at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, she does hope that the Time’s Up movement will assist many people.
However, McGowan, who previously slammed actresses for supporting the Globes blackout, supports the mission of the initiative: to fight sexual harassment, assault and inequality for women in all kinds of workplaces.
“I hope they help a lot of people. I do,” said McGowan, who has been at the forefront of the harassment conversation and the Harvey Weinstein takedown.
The Time’s Up movement, which launched on Monday to help fight sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood and beyond, has raised over $16 million for a legal defense fund, and anyone can donate.
McGowan no longer considers herself an actress!
McGowan also revealed at the event that she no longer considers herself an actress.
“No, I don’t act. People keep reporting on me as an actress and I’m like, “Yo, I don’t do that. I’m a director. I have an album coming out. I am an author – that’s the number one thing,” she said at the Television Critics Association’s event.
“I just wrote a 300-page book that is about teaching people to be brave. It’s exactly the opposite of what everybody thinks it is. That’s why I did the show. The show actually answers what people think is in the book. The book is different. It takes you through my life and teaches bravery. It’s uplifting, it’s fierce, it’s free. The album is the other half that I have that goes to the book. The show is the other part of that – It’s all Rose Army. It’s all tied together.”
While McGowan’s book seeks to teach people to be brave, McGowan said trying to do what is right is a quality she was born with.
“I came out that way,” McGowan said. “It’s a weird thing to be a human lightning rod for your whole life.”
Adding, “English is my second language. I think human is my other second, second language. … Sometimes I feel like I speak a different language to everybody. I’m not sure, but I don’t understand why people just don’t tell the truth. It’s not going to kill you. It’s OK!”
McGown – Fighting Off the Monsters
Still, there’s been a personal cost, McGowan said. “It’s really scary, I’m having to sell my house right now to pay legal bills fighting off the monsters.”
If the other actresses and actors at the Golden Globes, including Oprah Winfrey, really were serious about their protest against Harvey Weinstein and others for sexual and gross misbehavior, they would reach out and help Rose McGowan and at least 70 others fight this battle. Because we all know the battle goes deeper than just Weinstein and has for decades!
