Rose McGowan Appears To Call Bull**** On #MeToo

Rose McGowan became one of the most prominent activists involved with the #MeToo movement in the wake of the numerous sexual abuse allegations made against producer Harvey Weinstein last year.

However, McGowan was interviewed for a Sunday Times UK profile published yesterday that appeared to quote her criticising #MeToo supporters.

“It’s all bull****. It’s a lie," McGowan reportedly said, "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,” she added.

“I just think they’re douchebags,” she said without naming any specific members of the #MeToo community.

“They’re not champions. I just think they’re losers. I don’t like them,” she said.

The article attracted widespread outcry on social media -- which prompted McGowan to claim she was never referring to #MeToo.

"I never said #MeToo is a lie," she wrote on Twitter.

"I was talking about Hollywood and Time's Up, not #MeToo. #MeToo is about survivors and their experiences, that cannot be taken away."

While McGowan noted that she's "tired of erroneous sh*tstorms", the former actress has been accused of backpedalling on her original comments.
