'Hollywood fakery': Harvey Weinstein whistleblowers lash Golden Globes

Share

Her comment was in response to a tweet from Asia Argento, an Italian actress who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, who tweeted about the lack of "victim's" at this year's glitzy event.

Cape Town - In the span of ten days, artist/activist Rose McGowan was arrested, met with former President Barack Obama, and became one of TIME Magazine's "People of the Year", all while navigating the minefield of those trying to silence her. "I have no time for Hollywood fakery, but you I love, .@AsiaArgento #RoseArmy", McGowan added. "I want to have a conversation with everyone, and most especially, you, about looking at things differently and seeing beauty everywhere".

McGowan is taking on Hollywood in her own way. "I am on your side until I die".

She went public with her accusation of rape after The New York Times reported on the settlement as part of a larger expose on Weinstein. Actor Corey Feldman, who had spoken out about his alleged mistreatment in Hollywood for years, also tweeted that he had not been invited.

Kodak launches its own cryptocurrency
Rich Cigars, a tobacco company, and Vapetek, an e-cigarette firm, each declared they were suddenly blockchain businesses. KODAKOne will be launching this week, and the KODAKCoin initial coin offering will be opening on January 31st, 2018.

And though some stars who have participated in reality shows have been reluctant to call them that, Ms. McGowan said she was not above the genre.

However, despite the big roles they played in why women wore black to Golden Globes on Sunday night, the women were not in attendance.

It's not the first time McGowan has called out the "hypocrisy" of Hollywood on the issue.

Rosanna Arquette, who accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, tweeted to a follower, "No we weren't invited". You'll accept a fake award breathlessly and affect no real change. She has so much that's valuable to say.

Rose McGowan has repeatedly voiced her outrage. Studio Ten's Jessica Rowe said while it is "wonderful" for women to be finding their voice, the black dress code looked "tokenistic".

"I wish we had better language", she said. Another, known as Coleen, said: "Meryl Streep accessorising with an activist is so pathetic". "I don't have time to play nice", she told the publication. "I am just one of so many".

"I thought, obviously, this man has something fantastic in store for me", she said during a teary-eyed press conference in Manhattan to discuss the sex trafficking lawsuit she filed a day earlier against Weinstein in Manhattan federal court.
