Rose McGowan has called Oprah Winfrey as “fake as they come” in a scathing Twitter post over her friendship with Harvey Weinstein.
The actor recently took to Twitter to speak out against the popular talk show host, sharing a photo of Winfrey kissing the disgraced Hollywood producer on the cheek.
The photograph of the pair was taken at the 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.
McGowan – an early #MeToo activist who accused Weinstein of rape – accompanied the photo with a caption reading: “I am glad more are seeing the ugly truth of @Oprah. I wish she were real, but she isn’t.
“From being pals with Weinstein to abandoning & destroying Russell Simmon’s [sic] victims, she is about supporting a sick power structure for personal gain, she is as fake as they come. #lizard.People criticised Winfrey’s line of questioning, in which she asked the country star about getting “work done”.
“You’ve been open that you’ve had some work done, some tucks and pulls and sucks,” said Winfrey at the time.
Parton replied: “Yes I have and I’ll have some more when I need them.”Winfrey also raised Parton’s experience with depression, stating she heard the singer went into a “huge depression” when she turned 40.
The clip sparked a wider discussion on the talk show host’s former friendships with Weinstein and Simmons. FULLSTORY
