ROSE McGowan is continuing her campaign against sexual abuse in Hollywood, blasting Kevin Spacey following allegations he groped actor Anthony Rapp when Rapp was 14 years old.
Following Spacey’s controversial statement in response to the claims, in which he apologised and came out as gay, McGowan took to Twitter.
“Bye bye, Spacey goodbye, it’s your turn to cry, that’s why we’ve gotta say goodbye,” the actress wrote.
Responding to the House Of Cards star’s decision to come out as gay in the statement, which was seen by some as an attempt to overshadow the sexual misconduct claims,
The Jawbreaker star has been leading the charge to uncover sexual harassment in Hollywood since it was revealed she was assaulted by Harvey Weinstein in the 1990s. She stayed silent about the abuse until recently discovering the settlement she made with the disgraced director did not prevent her from speaking out.
Star Trek: Discovery actor Rapp, 46, detailed an alleged incident that he says happened at a 1986 party at Spacey’s house when Rapp was 14 years old and Spacey was 26, in a new interview with Buzzfeed.
In a statement posted to his official Twitter account, Spacey said he was “beyond horrified” to learn of Rapp’s allegations, but said the story had encouraged him to “address other things about my life.”
In today’s statement, Spacey acknowledged that there had been “stories out there” about his private life over the years.
“As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man. I want to deal with this openly and honestly and that starts with examining my own behaviour.”
