Actor Rose McGowan has pulled out of a public appearance after accusing media mogul Harvey Weinstein of rape.The 44-year-old actor had revealed that she was raped by the producer in a series of tweets directed at Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and alleged that she was ignored, reported FemaleFirst.
McGowan will not attend the Tallgrass Film Festival, where she would have been recognised with an Ad Astra Award for her directorial debut, “Dawn”.
“We are sorry to announce that we’ve just been informed that Rose McGowan has cancelled all upcoming public appearances due to compounding factors surrounding recent revelations in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case.
“While we’re disappointed that Rose cannot be here with us in person, we understand that her well being is the priority. We support her and our thoughts are with her,” read the statement from the organisers.
The festival will now hold a panel discussion, “#WokeWomen: A Candid Conversation with Tallgrass’ Female Filmmakers” in the “Charmed” star’s honour.
“The whole world is now aware, in large part due to Rose’s efforts, about the rampant sexual harassment within the entertainment industry, and so in her honour, we have pulled together a panel of women filmmakers who will be attending the festival with their films, for a frank conversation, because the message doesn’t stop here,” the statement continued.happy wheels
