Alyssa Milano Explains Silence on Allegations Against Biden, Rose McGowan Goes After Her

Alyssa Milano is speaking out to explain why she has remained silent on the sexual assault allegations made against former VP and current presidential candidate Joe Biden.

The 47-year-old actress was one of the early and most vocal supporters of the Time’s Up movement, so people have questioned why she hasn’t addressed the Biden allegations as she has endorsed him.

“I endorsed Joe Biden and there have been accusations against Joe about sexual assault… I have not publicly said anything about this, if you remembered it took me a long time to publicly say anything about Harvey as well,” Alyssa said on SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Live. “I believe that even though we should believe women and that is an important thing and what that statement really means is that for so long the go to has been to not to believe them. So really we have to societally change that mindset to believing women, but that does not mean at the expense of not giving men their due process and investigating situations.”

One of Biden‘s former staff members claimed that she was sexually assaulted by him in 1993.

Alyssa added, “I have been very vocal about Biden and my support for him, I have known him for a long time. I did do my due diligence and the article that stood out to me was that Times Up decided not to take the case…. I did my work and I spoke to Times Up and I just don’t feel comfortable throwing away a decent man that I have known for 15 years in this time of complete chaos without there being a thorough investigation. I am sure that mainstream media would be jumping all over this as well if they found more evidence.”

Now, Rose McGowan is speaking out the slam Alyssa for her comments. (The two actresses both starred on Charmed)

“You are a fraud. This is about holding the media accountable. You go after Trump & Kavanaugh saying Believe Victims, you are a lie. You have always been a lie. The corrupt DNC is in on the smear job of Tara Reade, so are you. SHAME,” Rose wrote in a tweet.

Alyssa responded, “I continue to support you and applaud your bravery as well as acknowledge all the people you have helped along the way, @Rosemcgowan. Be well and stay safe.”
