You remember in the first Scream movie when Rose McGowan’s character tried to escape through the doggie access in the garage door and that asshole Ghostface flipped the switch? And she got smooshed? Well, that’s what Rose has been doing to Hollywood since she became one of the first female celebrities to speak openly about Harvey Weinstein. Showbiz has been trying to escape out the doggie door and Rose is smooshing those fools!
Sometime back, Rose shaved her head, said “EFF IT” to her career, loosened her cannon, and started tweeting. Since the Weinstein situation broke, she’s been calling everyone out in Hollywood whom she feels is either an abuser or complicit in said abuse.Take for example, her former Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano. Despite Alyssa’s now famous tweet urging her followers to use the #MeToo hashtag (that was started by social activist Tarana Burke in 2006), Rose remains unimpressed. Specifically, because Alyssa has also been going to bat for Harvey Weinstein’s now ex-wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman. Much like you won’t see Rose wearing Marchesa anytime soon, you also won’t see her signing on to a Charmed reunion. Rose went in on Alyssa on Twitter on Friday. Eh, once you fire Shannen Doherty, your show is going to suck anyways.

“Georgina is doing very well … she’s an amazing woman, and I think her priority right now is focusing on how to raise those two children to the best of her capacity given the situation,” she said. “She goes through very dark times. She’s very sad. This is not easy for her, but I have no doubt that not only will she come out on the other side of this, but she deserves to. She’s a good woman.”
Rose, who appears to be firmly in the “How did she not know and if she did know, how could she stay with him?” camp, lit up Samantha Micelli, which made some cheer for her and others say, “Err, Rose, you need to step away from Twitter for a minute.”
Consider The Book of Three closed! Rose also brought the Patron Saint of Complicit Wives into the mix with another tweet.
Rose also took aim at Meryl Streep. The chameleon queen appeared at the Massachusetts Conference for Women on Thursday and referred to the Harvey horror as “the most gargantuan example of disrespect” towards women. Rose read that headline and obviously felt that Meryl needed to upgrade her vocabulary when it came to describing the actions of a sexual predator. And also called her “a lie.”
To keep relating this back to Hollywood, think of Rose as Guillermo Diaz in Half-Baked and most of the other celebs are her co-workers.
