Rose McGowan Addresses Harvey Weinstein's Impending Arrest

Rose McGowan is happy that justice is finally being served.

The 44-year-old actress – who has previously accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her – is responding after news broke on Thursday (May 24) that the 66-year-old disgraced producer will reportedly be surrendering to the police on sex crime charges.

“I, and so many of Harvey Weinstein’s survivors, had given up hope that our rapist would be held accountable by law. Twenty years ago, I swore that I would right this wrong. Today we are one step closer to justice,” Rose said via Variety.

Harvey is expected to surrender himself to police on Friday, May 25 in New York City in connection with Lucia Evans‘ sexual assault case when he allegedly forced her to perform oral sex on him during an audition back in 2004.

“We were young women who were assaulted by Weinstein and later terrorised by his vast network of complicity,” Rose continued. “I stand with my fellow survivors. May this give hope to all victims and survivors everywhere that are telling their truths.”

    she used him for fame though without any issue until she cratered her own career

    Too bad you didn’t come forward 20 years ago, you could have saved a lot of heartaches. But I guess money, fame and your career were more important.

    Um, sport? If you’d cared to do your homework on sex abuse victims coming forward- which clearly you haven’t- you would see that
    a) more than 90 per cent of victims NEVER EVER come forrward
    b)Those who do, wait an average 0f 25 years, when they are mature enough to handle coming forward and so they won’t be devastated by ugly, non compassionate and ignorant comments like yours

    c) Because victims wait decades to come forward, Massachusetts voted in the Stop the Clock law, which means that if the predator moves out of state after molesting someone, the clock stops and he can be brought back for prosecution at any time. That’s how they have recently convicted priests from the 50s and 60s. As stated, you really really need to read up on this topic before making hateful comments about victims. Shame on you

    Um.. See my comment above. There are hundreds of victims. You also need to read up on director James Toback who has more than 400 victims. He accosted me on streets of Manhattan for years, and I am not even an actress. Shame on your ugly comment

    I honestly think that she is a victim, yes, but I think this push for change on her part is being done for publicity. I watched a video of her in boards and nobles where she was not able to address a question of fan had, but acted like she about to fight a war as if she was a force to be reckoned with after securtity took the person out of the area. Nothing about her reads is genuine. Even if nothing happened to her behind closed doors, at the end of the day she would still be some washed up actress trying to find some type of way to get back on the bandwagon to make herself relevant above to even make it into a Sharknado movie.
