Rose McGowan is clarifying her recent remarks about #MeToo movement.
The actress, an alleged victim of Harvey Weinstein, has been among the most vocal participants in the fight against sexual misconduct. She does not believe the efforts of other activists are as genuine.
On Sunday, McGowan took to Twitter to explain that she was not referring to the #MeToo movement, but rather Hollywood and the Time’s Up organization.
“It’s all bulls**t,” McGowan had told The Sunday Times in an interview published earlier that day. “It’s a lie. It’s a Band-Aid lie to make them feel better.”
“I know these people, I know they’re lily-livered, and as long as it looks good on the surface, to them, that’s enough,” McGowan stated. “They’re not champions. I just think they’re losers.”
Believe it or not, McGowan and U.S. President Donald Trump share common ground on one issue. “They hate Hollywood for being faux liberals — and they’re 100 per cent right about that,” she said.
“It’s a bunch of faux liberals. It’s crap, and they know it is deep down, but they’re living an empty life, and to me, that’s their punishment,” McGowan continued. “They get to live the lives they live.”
