Rose McGowan Apologizes to Asia Argento, Asia Responds

Rose McGowan has issued an apology to Asia Argento after Asia publicly demanded an apology or she would pursue legal action.

If you don’t know, Rose issued a lengthy reaction statement pertaining to Asia and her sexual misconduct scandal regarding a former child actor named Jimmy Bennett.

““In my statement, I challenged why Asia had not acted as I think any responsible adult would if they received sexually explicit messages from a 12 year old, which of course do not apply in the same way as when the situation involves a 17 year old, who had admitted harboring misguided fantasies about their mentor since they were 12,” Rose wrote. “I deeply regret not correcting my mistake sooner and apologize to Asia for not doing so.”

Asia responded on Twitter, writing, “Although I am grateful to @rosemcgowan for her full apology following her groundless allegations about me, if she had issued it earlier, I may have kept my job on X-Factor and avoided the constant accusations of paedophilia which I have been subjected to in real-life and online.”

She added, “Now go on, live your life and stop hurting other people, will you Rose? Best wishes.”

Rose’s Full Apology Statement

“On 27 August I released a statement about Asia Argento, which I now realized (sic) contained a number of facts that were not correct. The most serious of these was that I said that the unsolicited nude text messages Asia received from Jimmy Bennett had been sent since Jimmy was 12 years old. In fact, I had misunderstood the messages that Asia exchanged with my partner Rain Dove, which made clear that Jimmy had sent Asia inappropriate text messages only after they met up again when he was 17 (still legally a minor in California, but notably different from a 12 year old).”

“I do not feel that it is my place to comment further on what happened at the Ritz Carlton in Marina del Rey hotel in May 2013, save to say that I now appreciate that it was not as I thought it was previously,” Rose continued.

Rose added, “In my statement, I challenged why Asia had not acted as I think any responsible adult would if they received sexually explicit messages from a 12 year old, which of course do not apply in the same way as when the situation involves a 17 year old, who had admitted harboring misguided fantasies about their mentor since they were 12.

“I deeply regret not correcting my mistake sooner and apologize to Asia for not doing so,” Rose ended her statement.

    But at the end of the day, Argento had sex with a minor and most likely abused him! Argento even admitted to it in text messages. This isn’t a he said-she said. This is a horrible woman taking advantage of a young man that she’s known since he was a little child.

    The story going around is Asia has some shit on Rose that she is threatening to reveal if she doesn’t shut up. As they say there isn’t anything else that can come out about Asia now that would make her look bad. Rose on the other hand is another story.

    As for Asia, she is a roach who at this point deserves no apologies or sympathy. She denied and denied until the proof was revealed. Now we are told she only gave him the money because she felt sorry for him and she was the one who was assaulted, not him. Anyone who saw the picture of the pair of them in bed knows that is BS. No one who has been assaulted looks as sexual or happy as that afterwards.

    Oh so because Rose apologized, automatically Asia didn’t have statutory rape sex with Bennett? These two are despicable.

    Rose and her interfering big mouth, as usual. These two bozos should get together, they’d make an awesome couple.
