Rose McGowan took to social media for the first time following her former manager Jill Messick’s shocking suicide. That being said, the Instagram post had nothing to do with the tragic passing, not even acknowledging it, which infuriated many!
The Charmed star shared a pic in which she was showing off her Impact Award she received back in January at the Digital-Life-Design Conference.
The said award was given to her for speaking out against sexual assault and harassment.
‘Still remembering this day with much love. Thank you so much for honoring me for what I do for all women. #RoseArmy #bebrave,’ the image was captioned.
Soon after she posted this, a lot of social media users voiced their outrage that this was what she chose to share online after her former managed passed away.
‘Is this the very first thing you felt when you heard of your ex-manager taking her life and her family blaming among others your own contempt against Jill? ‘honoring me?’ #MeToo,’ one comment read.
Another simply asked: ‘Er, have you checked the news, Rose?’
The late woman’s family has released a statement in which they claimed that, aside from her struggling with depression and bipolar disorder, Rose’s crusade against the disgraced Harvey Weinstein had taken a huge toll on her as well!
Being dragged into the public battle affected her mental state a lot.
The Brave author fought against more people aside from her alleged abuser, the statement read.
‘One was Jill, who chose to remain silent in the face of Rose’s statements against her in fear of undermining the many individuals who came forward in truth.’
What do you think about Rose’s choice to not mention her late manager and instead show off her own accomplishments?
