Rose McGowan, Asia Argento Call Out Alyssa Milano for Wishing Harvey Weinstein’s Wife Well on ‘Today’
Milano calls Georgina Chapman “an amazing woman,” which apparently makes McGowan “want to vomit.”
Rose McGowan, Jawbreaker actress, and Asia Argento, actress, both took to Twitter Friday to slam Alyssa Milano’s, Melrose Place actress,”Today” interview earlier this week when the TIME Person of the Year was revealed.
While Milano has been considered a huge ally in the #MeToo movement sweeping the country, resulting in many powerful men being fired or resigning from positions due to sexual misconduct allegations, McGowan and Argento were not pleased with Milano’s comments about Georgina Chapman. The designer is married to Harvey Weinstein, a movie mogul McGowan and Argento say raped them in separate incidents. Chapman left Weinstein after the flood of sexual assault allegations against him came to light.
Argento simply noted that “Milano is no bueno” Friday morning, while McGowan seemingly expressed that her former “Charmed” co-star made her sick.
“You make me want to vomit. You actually gave me a body flashback. Well done, fake one,” McGowan commented, while retweeting an article about Milano’s comments.
“Alyssa, maybe you and Georgina can call up Camille Cosby,” she added, referring to Bill Cosby’s wife, who stood by the disgraced comedian even after dozens of women came forward with disturbing sexual assault allegations.
Milano said Chapman was “very sad,” and added, “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 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,” Milano said.
In the lengthy statement, Weinstein owned up to some of his bad behavior, though his attorney also said “he denies many of the accusations as patently false.”
