“Step the f*** back. What I do for the f***ing world and you should be f***ing grateful.”
Rose McGowan lost her cool after a trans advocate questioned the actor about her stance on transgender issues. A video has emerged showing the 44-year-old screaming at a transgender activist after being asked about comments she made on RuPaul’s podcast What’s The Tee in July last year.
On the show, McGowan questioned whether trans women really knew what was it was like to grow up female.
At the Manhattan event, the activist passionately told McGowan, “Trans women are dying, and you said that we, as trans women, are not like regular women.
“We get raped more often. We go through domestic violence more often.
“There was a trans woman killed here a few blocks [away]. I have been followed home.”
McGowan responded civilly at first saying, “So have I. So have I. So have I. We’re the same. My point was: we are the same,
“There’s an entire show called ID channel, a network, dedicated 24 hours a day to women getting abused, murdered, sexualised and violated, and you are too, sister.
“It’s the same.”
However, when the activist responded that McGowan had done “nothing for” trans women and labelled as a cis white feminist, McGowan lost her cool.
Watch below as it all unfolded.
Here is the full video of @rosemcgowan shouting down a trans woman, saying that she is resentful that she gets told she has white privilege and cis privilege, and to shut up and sit down.
Trigger warning: she’s a full out unapologetic raging racist transphobic white woman. pic.twitter.com/PdRnLtQc2K
