Actress Rose McGowan took to social media to explain comments she made during an interview with the UK's Sunday Times magazine, in which she appeared to criticize the #MeToo movement and was quoted as calling it a "lie." According to Page Six, McGowan sent out a series of tweets and videos to affirm that she supports the movement and thinks it's "beautiful."
The 45-year-old actress started out by tweeting, "I never said #MeToo is a lie. Ever. I was talking about Hollywood and Time's Up, not #MeToo. Ugh. I'm so tired of erroneous s–tstorms. #MeToo is about survivors and their experiences, that cannot be taken away."
In part of the video she continues by saying, "I'm just here to say that #MeToo is important, it's honest, and it's our experience. It is not a lie. For some reason, there are people in the media that will try to bring it down. But I say stand strong. Again, it's simply our shared experience. That is what #MeToo is, and it's beautiful."
During her interview on Sunday, McGowan said that she did not feel supported or welcomed by the movement even though she was one of the first to speak out against someone in power, writes the Inquisitr. She added that she isn't invited to luncheons or featured in women's magazines.
