Are those allegations? Is there more? What’s Rose Mcgowans’ take on Oprah Winfrey?
Going by the reports, Rose McGowan has made a bold statement on Oprah’s contribution to #MeToo as fake.
Rose McGowan slammed Oprah on Twitter and stated her to be “as fake as they come.”
Recently, Rose spoke about her issues and mistrust with Oprah through a tweet. The picture had the personality kissing Harvey Weinstein. This was a shot from Critics’ Choice Movie Awards back in 2014.
Indeed Rose’s tweet was harsh enough as it read
“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.”

Rose and Oprah – The Brawl?
McGowan has been an #MeToo activist for a long time now. Furthermore, she was the one behind Weinstein’s accusation of rape.
Since 2017 November, Simmons, a hip-hop music rockstar has also been on the radar for sexual assault. From the many allegations that met his way, he has responded and termed those as ”inappropriate conduct” but for the rest, he disregarded them.
The comment McGowan left out for Oprah has been buzzing around for quite some time now.
In February 2020, Weinstein was proven guilty for two felonies under ”nonconsensual sex”
Simmons was also part of the list and was left accused of rape and assault by no less than 20 women.
Therefore, Rose is clearly trying to highlight Oprah’s involvement in ”On the record” which was based on Simmons’ sexual encounters.
“I have decided that I will no longer be executive producer on the untitled Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering documentary, and it will not air on Apple TV+,” Oprah said in one of her reports.
“I want it to be known that I unequivocally believe and support the women. Their stories deserve to be told and heard. In my opinion, there is more work to be done on the film to illuminate the full scope of what the victims endured, and it has become clear that the filmmakers and I are not aligned in that creative vision.”, she adds.
The opinion of Rose towards Oprah made it to the mainstream when Oprah’s interview with Dolly Parton circulated all over the internet on weekends.
