Rose McGowan Opens Up About Her Sexual Assault By A Hollywood Exec

Rose McGowan is opening up about being sexually assaulted by an unnamed Hollywood executive in a series of very honest tweets.

The 43-year-old actress and director took to her Twitter to share her story amid many other women opening up following allegations recently made against Donald Trump.

Rose wrote that she was raped by a studio executive but was told that she would never win a criminal case against her attacker.

“a (female) criminal attorney said because I’d done a sex scene in a film I would never win against the studio head. #WhyWomenDontReport,” one Tweet read.

    And most of these Hollywood rapists are more likely to be Hilary supporters.

    In other words, you let a rapist get away with victimizing you to likely continue raping future victims. I can’t even give you sympathy because you have presented no evidence that a crime even occurred. However, I will give you scorn because you think your lame excuses for failing to seek justice warrant an outpouring of support by strangers who will forget your story within a week.

  • jane

    another woman attacked by a nameless person. these celebrities need attention no matter how they get it. notice how they’re all d-listers w/out anything going on.

  • Spencer Rogers-Greason

    What evidence do you think even exists at this point? You do realize that even when rape kits are done, a LARGE majority of them still just go untested? Try learning some facts before ignorantly spewing out uneducated horse shit like this.

  • Spencer Rogers-Greason

    She’s an idiot because you’re too stupid to comprehend what she said? Good logic there.

  • Roscoe

    If there was no rape, there likely would be none. She didn’t pursue charges and the statute of limitations has likely expired years ago. If her’s went untested, blame everyone but her if you want. Wouldn’t there have been police notification if a kit was performed at hospital? Evidence can consist of that, reports/statements from the examining doctor and/or nurse, photos, ripped/stained clothing, video, or phone and/or email records.

    If you thought a case solely rests on a rape kit, you have just been educated. Remaining willfully ignorant is an option too.

  • Crystal Eck

    These comments say it all about what is wrong with the world…

  • Spencer Rogers-Greason

    She didn’t pursue charges because her legal counsel flat out told her she couldn’t win, dipshit. Also, you talk as if she’d have some control over it being tested or not. She wouldn’t. Keep in mind, Brock Turner had tons of evidence against him, eyewitnesses testifying, and the little shit walked with a paltry, pitiful slap on the wrist.

    I hate to break it to you, lots of rape cases have gone to trail with what you consider to be substantial evidence, and the guy still walks free.

    Good thing I didn’t think it solely rested on that! As for remaining willfully ignorant, you’re clearly doing more than enough of that for everyone.

    Its so easy for u to talk, isnt it?

    I’m not the one talking. SHE is. That’s the point, moron.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Ironic, isn’t it?

    This bozo would rather refer to him as “my rapist” and whine about him having power over her, while STILL letting him have power over her by refusing to say his name. I’m sick of hearing it!

  • Roscoe

    Is that you Rose? You are awfully upset. Sorry, but you can stay angry – I don’t care LOL. She flat out refused to pursue charges. Guess what genius, the police have no legal authority to refuse to take a police report. It is up to the DA to opt against seeking an indictment. Therefore, in case you are still behind the curve, this woman failed to press charges and opted not to civilly sue. That is what her counsel was handling (a possible civil suit), not whether to press criminal charges or not. If you are awarding her points for not even trying, you are as much of a loser as she is making herself out to be. For every case you can point to that failed justice-wise, I can point to a dozen more where the alleged was convicted and imprisoned. I’m sure other possible victims of the still unnamed accused would pat McGowan on the back for giving up.

  • Spencer Rogers-Greason

    Way to literally ignore everything I said aside from one thing, which you just twisted around to suit your argument.

    Oh, you know what her counsel was handling, care to cite sources on that? Or just talking out of your ass?

    Really, a dozen more where the alleged was convicted and imprisoned?? In rape cases? Somehow I imagine an utter idiot like you would claim people like Brock Turner as cases like that -.-

    The police have no legal authority to do a lot of things, yet they keep doing them. Huh. Weird. It’s almost like there’s no actual guarantee!

    Once again, she didn’t press charges because she was flat out told she wouldn’t win, so unless you can cite sources to back up your bullshit, you’re just furthering rape culture. Asshole.

  • Spencer Rogers-Greason

    And then even if she did say his name, you’d demand something else. And even if she provided that, you’d still find something to bitch about yourself. It’s like you further rape culture.

  • Roscoe

    Yep, you need to be told when and how to think. I hope you call yourself all of those names when or if I am proven right. Of course, I won’t expect an apology – moral behavior is not in you me thinks. “Rape culture” LOL You didn’t know the term existed until the television, internet etc. told you. You have been programmed well, robot.

    Oh fuck off, you emotional nitwit.

  • Spencer Rogers-Greason

    This coming from the person telling a random person to shut up simply because they’re sharing something that happened to them. Hilarious.

  • Spencer Rogers-Greason

    Wow, that’s some good proof you have there for your bullshit claims. When, or if? You don’t sound too confident about your ability to be proven right anymore. Almost like…you’re full of shit.
    Way to go with the sanctimony thing though. You don’t really do so well when people actually call you on your BS, do you? That’s a trick question, by the way.
    Yeah, because you know when or where I learned anything. Idiot.

    Whatever, emotional nitwit.

  • Spencer Rogers-Greason

    Ah, yes, the rebuttal of an angsty little asshole who doesn’t know when to keep their trap shut because they can’t handle it when someone calls them on their horse shit.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Stay angry, emotional nitwit.

    There is another crime here, that haircut.
