MILO Issues Blistering Critique of Rose McGowan as Hollywood Reels from Sexual Harassment Drama
Conservative firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos took to Facebook on Sunday to opine on Hollywood’s sad state of affairs, while blasting actress Rose McGowan for her years of silence as Harvey Weinstein allegedly harassed countless women.
MILO on Facebook wrote:
Harvey Weinstein is a scumbag and I hope he gets locked up. But I’m not applauding the self-serving actresses dancing on his grave, nor even the BRAVE HEROINES who finally broke rank. Rose McGowan remained quiet until it was more professionally advantageous to speak out than to stay silent. How many young girls were attacked while she kept her mouth shut on her way to becoming rich and famous? And I don’t believe the people who say they didn’t know — not for a second. As far as I’m concerned, the entire Hollywood ecosystem is rotten and dripping with spiritual putrefaction. Burn it.
McGowan’s statements on Hollywood’s sexual harassment problems went viral over the past week, as she called out Harvey Weinstein, Ben Affleck and Jeff Bezos.
Affleck’s former co-star Rose McGowan told Ben to “F*ck off!” and accused him of knowing about Weinstein’s abuse for years.
