She is now taking that frustration public and wants to be lauded by the world.
Rose McGowan slams New York Times for failing to credit her as Harvey Weinstein’s first accuser
Rose McGowan has slammed editors of The New York Times for failing to credit her with kicking off the #MeToo movement.
The actress, who is among the over-300 women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, abuse or even rape, tells The Guardian she is “grossed out” by the way the outlet “enjoyed being lauded” for publishing an explosive article detailing the claims against the movie mogul in 2017.
During the sit down, the star shared her frustration over the Times referring to her as “one of the first” to come forward with allegations against the disgraced producer.
“I’ve been called one of the first to speak out,” she said. “No. I was the first. I called the New York Times. I blew it wide open, not them. They won the Pulitzer and I’m the one hard-up for money. It’s disgusting. I was kind of grossed out by how much they enjoyed being lauded.”
