Rose McGowan, a former star of Charmed, is known for her outspokenness and bravery in standing up for herself. She fearlessly caused controversy with a tweet accusing Oprah Winfrey of being fake and a liar.
McGowan confidently accused the former host of insincerely supporting the #MeToo movement.
“I am glad more are seeing the ugly truth of @Oprah,” McGowan tweeted along with an old photo of the talk show host smiling alongside convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein. “I wish she were real, but she isn’t.”
The tweet continued: “From being pals with Weinstein to abandoning & destroying Russell Simmon’s [sic] victims, she is about supporting a sick power structure for personal gain, she is as fake as they come. #lizard.”
This happened after Oprah turned down the role of executive producer of the Russell Simmons documentary “#MeToo”. Since November 2017, Simmons, a hip-hop music mogul, has been accused of more than a dozen cases of sexual harassment or misconduct.
Then Oprah said that the reason for her decision was that “more work needs to be done on the film to clarify the full scale of what the victims went through, and it became clear that the filmmakers and I are not united in this creative vision.”
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she stated that she supports women who have experienced sexual violence, and added that their stories should be told and heard.
Speaking of Weinstein, whose long list of alleged sexual assaults dating back to the 1970s was the catalyst for the #MeToo movement in October 2017, Oprah said she was previously friendly with him. The host further added that she “didn’t know any of this was going on,” referring of Weinstein’s behavior.
“Everybody has a story, so I believe this is a turning point. We’re going to miss this opportunity if we only make it about Harvey Weinstein,” Oprah explained.
McGowan also tweeted that she has “a message to the evil creeps in all industries, all nations. We, the people, have a message for you.” She then linked Lily Allen’s 2009 song “Fuck You.”
The actress is among those who accused Weinstein of rape.
