It’s no secret that McGowan is against all forms of oppressive systems around the world. She is one of the leading figures in the #MeToo movement and regularly speaks for the oppressed. Therefore, it was expected that she would have a similar stance on Black Lives Matter, and she did not disappoint. In a recent tweet, Rose McGowan shared a GIF from Star Wars: Battlefront video game and wrote:
Keep going, no matter what, keep going. You can change the world. So do it. Fight for it!

And interestingly enough, it is quite an apt description of what is happening right now in America. The Black Lives Matter movement is a lot like the Rebellion, fighting against the evil American empire, led by Emperor Donald Trump. Moreover, we live in such funny times that all of this doesn’t even seem far fetched. Rose McGowan used the perfect GIF!
