Rose McGowan and other Harvey Weinstein accusers have reacted to news that the controversial Hollywood producer is finally getting arrested.
Hours after New York Daily News reported that Weinstein is expected to surrender to authorities on Friday, Rose McGowan – best known for her role as Paige Matthews on “Charmed” – issued a statement to express how she feels about the news.
“We were young women who were assaulted by Weinstein and later terrorized by his vast network of complicity. I stand with my fellow survivors. May this give hope to all victims and survivors everywhere that are telling their truths,” McGowan added.
McGowan is one of the numerous women who have come forward to tell their stories on how Weinstein sexually assaulted, harassed and tormented them in the past.
Annabella Sciorra, another one of Weinstein’s accusers, has also reacted to his imminent arrest.
The Emmy-nominated “Sopranos” star is accusing Weinstein of forcing himself into her New York apartment and raping her in 1992.
Following a length investigation, authorities have now decided to place Weinstein under arrest this Friday in connection to the accusations made by more than 60 women against the producer.
Aside from McGowan, Sciorra and Sorvina, big stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and many others have accused Weinstein of sexual assault, harassment and misconduct, according to the BBC. Rose McGowan released a statement after hearing about Harvey Weinstein’s upcoming arrest.
