Actress Rose McGowan had very strong criticism for famous talk show host Oprah Winfrey on social media Sunday, slamming the entertainment icon for her ties to convicted sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, among other allegations.
McGowan in her now-viral tweet also pointed out that Oprah has close ties to Russell Simmons, a record company executive and music producer who is also alleged to have a long and disturbing history of sexual misconduct.
"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 Simmons's victims, she is about supporting a sick power structure for personal gain, she is as fake as they come. #lizard," tweeted McGowan.
According to Fox News, McGowan has previously also criticized the Time's Up movement, which Oprah's organizations have donated possibly $500,000 or more to fight back against sexual harassment in the workplace. Time's Up was purportedly founded as a part of the massive #MeToo online movement.
However, it appears that the organization wound up allied with former Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo, who has since resigned in the wake of a scathing report compiled by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
The investigative documents found a preponderance of evidence that Cuomo was also engaging in a pattern of systemic sexually predatory behavior.
