Rose McGowan is in some hot water over some comments she made saying gay men are misogynistic on Bret Easton Ellis podcast recently.
“Gay men are as misogynistic as straight men, if not more so,” the 41-year-old actress said on the Podcast. “I have an indictment of the gay community right now, I’m actually really upset with them.”
After the backlash, Rose wrote an op-ed piece for the Huffington Post where she offered an apology and an elaboration: “I made a dumb generalization, for that I apologize. For everything else I said, no. I will not.”
“When equal pay for women was voted down by every male Republican there was no LGBT outcry. I wondered why that was? After all, lesbians are women, this affects them, too, right?,” Rose said. “Misogyny infuriates men and it endangers me as a human. It also endangers the LGBT community. Empathy towards the plight of women isn’t making it better. Your voice will. Could I have articulated my frustration in a better fashion? Undoubtedly. For that I apologize, but I stand by my overall point.”
