Rose McGowan Claims Amazon ‘Won Dirty Oscar’ By Ignoring Weinstein Rape Accusations

Hollywood actress Rose McGowan accused Amazon of winning “a dirty Oscar” by working with accused rapist Harvey Weinstein, despite being warned of accusations against him.

McGowan is one of at least 20 women to have accused Weinstein of sexually harassing them. Amazon executives, McGowan claimed, did nothing when McGowan warned them about Weinstein. McGowan is one of several women to have settled with Weinstein.

“I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored,” she wrote. “Deal was done. Amazon won a dirty Oscar.”

McGowan called on Bezos to “stop funding rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers,” adding that “there is rot in Hollywood.”

Weinstein’s alleged pattern of sexual assault and harassment was reportedly an open secret among Hollywood elites. (RELATED: It’s Not Just Weinstein — Entertainment Industry Filled With Accused Sex Abusers)

McGowan has claimed that other movie stars and board members of Weinstein’s company knew about the rape accusations but helped cover them up.
