Alyssa Milano Responds To Rose McGowan Calling Her A Fraud
There is no love lost between Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan. The two co-stars from Charmed are not fond of each other ever since Rose came out against Weinstein. Milano was supporting the #MeToo movement and was against Weinstein too but she still supported his wife, Georgina Chapman. But recently, the two are back at odds with each other. And it involves accusations of sexual assault against Joe Biden!
Alyssa Milano supports Joe Biden, despite accusations!
Alyssa Milano claims to be one of the most die-hard supporters of the #MeToo movement. However, after lashing out at Bernie supporters, she was called out for being silent on claims of sexual assault on Joe Biden. Then, she finally broke her silence in an interview with Andy Cohen. she said:
They’re calling me hypocritical for, you know, and saying that I’m a fake feminist. And all of this stuff that I’m still trying desperately to stand back and be sort of objective about this. Because I don’t want this to you know — I sent the #MeToo tweet over two years ago. I never thought that it would be something that was going to destroy innocent men. Right? Like, we don’t want that to happen either.
After this, Alyssa Milano tweeted that she still supports Joe Biden, despite the claims.
It looks like she is trying to take the middle ground in this serious accusation, just like she did for Weinstein. And that was where the feud between her and Rose McGowan began. Therefore, upon hearing Alyssa Milano’s justification, Rose lashed out at her, tweeting:
You are a fraud. This is about holding the media accountable. You go after Trump & Kavanaugh saying Believe Victims, you are a lie. You have always been a lie. The corrupt DNC is in on the smear job of Tara Reade, so are you. SHAME https://t.co/B7NHK4k09K

After this, Alyssa Milano decided to calm things down a bit.
Instead of making matters worse, Alyssa Milano decided to tweet towards Rose McGowan. However, she didn’t use any harsh words and spoke kindly to her, saying:
I continue to support you and applaud your bravery as well as acknowledge all the people you have helped along the way, @Rosemcgowan. Be well and stay safe.

This response from Milano suited the circumstances, but her actions are confusing. Tara Reade has made some serious claims against Joe Biden. Instead of hearing Tara Reade out and giving her a voice, Alyssa decided to support the more powerful of the two. By supporting Biden, she effectively shut out Tara Reade and every accuser brave enough to come forward.
Therefore, she is openly showing double standards. Alyssa Milano was very vocal when Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was accused. Back then, she wasn’t showing the same understanding for the Supreme Court Justice. Back then, she tweeted:
This is exactly how most accused men are able to get away with such serious claims. And Alyssa is doing exactly the same with Biden right now. Hence, it’s better that Alyssa Milano stays consistent with her stance. It’s very brave of Tara Reade to come forward. And for that, she deserves to be heard and Biden to be held accountable.
