Rose McGowan has been a staunch supporter of women’s rights , including sexual abuse and harassment.
Besides ripping New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo about sexual harassment , she is calling out Time’s Up CEO and President Tina Tchen in light the Attorney General Letitia James report where she claimed she allegedly provided guidance on the drafting of a letter Cuomo advisers released that denied the legitimacy of allegations made by his first accuser and former aide Lindsey Boylan.
Tchen denounces her involvement on Twitter, stating “I have never given advice to the Governor or his team.”
In her tweet she says-“Milano, TimesUp, fake performatives and profiteers. Alyssa’s statement at the time was gaslighting in full effect. She said of my truth telling ‘Hurt people hurt people.’ No, Alyssa, it’s lizard people like you, SDK Knickerbocker, Gov Cuomo, the Pres, Tina Chen who hurt people. Your time is up. Exit stage left,” McGowan concluded.
Tchen also responded on Twitter-“I had a phone call with Robbie Kaplan about a letter she said was being sent by his staffers during which I gave the same advice I give to everyone else: No survivor should be attacked and the truth should be told. I’m furious that the Governor’s office used me and TIME’S UP as a justification for their defense. TIME’S UP is an organization that has always centered survivors while holding those committing harm accountable. Any characterization of us to the contrary is simply not true,”

First, I would never, nor have I ever, worked to discredit a survivor in any way. Secondly, I have never given advice to the Governor or his team. 1/
