In a series of tweets on Friday, Dec. 8, Rose McGowan called out both Meryl Streep and Alyssa Milano for comments they made about the Harvey Weinstein scandal. The actress, who was named as part of a sexual harassment settlement involving the movie mogul, didn’t hold back when chastising the women.
In response to a USA Today article titled, “Meryl Streep on Harvey Weinstein allegations: It’s ‘the most gargantuan example of disrespect,’” Rose tweeted, “No, Meryl, IT’S A F–KING CRIME. You are such a lie.” The Oscar winner previously released a statement about the producer’s actions in October, saying, “The disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and worthy causes he supported. The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes.”

Rose also took issue with fellow Charmed alum Alyssa, who recently opened up about friend and Project Runway All Stars co-star Georgina Chapman, who had been married to Harvey for nine years before announcing that she was leaving him two months ago. After the former child star revealed that the fashion designer was “sad” but “doing very well” following her husband’s downfall, Rose responded, “You make me want to vomit. You actually gave me a body flashback. Well done, fake one.”

She added in another tweet, “Alyssa, maybe you and Georgina can call up Camille Cosby,” referring to Bill Cosby’s wife, who has stuck by him through more than 50 sexual assault allegations. Alyssa has yet to respond directly to Rose’s attack, but she did post a quote by Ursula K. Le Guin, which many believe was directed at Rose: “When you light a candle, you also cast a shadow.”
One Twitter user wrote, “Alyssa thank you for giving a voice to many. I am sorry your co-star feels the need to attack u. I love her dearly but anger is misplaced. I hope the 2 of you can work it out… She is in a dark place trying to see.”
