Rose McGowan unleashes on transgender protester in on-stage meltdown before claiming she'd been raped by an Oscar-winning actor when she was 15 - and then cancels all public appearances
• McGowan lashed out at protester Andi Dier at Barnes & Noble on Thursday night
• Dier was part of a crowd there to listen to McGowan read from her book Brave
• She ambushed the actress, claiming she does not do enough for trans women
• It set McGowan off on a minutes-long, profanity-laced rant about the issue
• She told her: 'What I do is for the f****** world, you should be f****** grateful'
• McGowan, 44, later told the woman to 'f*** off' and 'leave me alone'
• She has demanded an apology from Barnes & Noble and believes Dier was paid
• Dier denies being paid to attend the event of criticize McGowan for her work
• On Thursday, McGowan said she was raped by another man when she was 15
• She then canceled all public appearances and said she had given 'enough'


The moment Rose McGowan unleashed on a transgender protester in an on-stage meltdown at a book reading on Wednesday two days before she canceled all public appearances has been captured in video.

The outburst happened at Barnes & Noble in Manhattan's Union Square on Wednesday evening as McGowan gave a reading from her new book, Brave.

Among the crowd of fans was an Andi Dier, an angry transgender woman who attacked McGowan for not campaigning for the rights of trans women.

She shouted at the actress and had to be escorted out by security but her remarks set McGowan on a minutes-long, profane rant where she spoke about being 'raped and strangled' and claimed Investigation Discovery was a network 'dedicated to women's deaths'.

The following day, the star took part in an interview with prolific reporter Ronan Farrow where she claimed for the first time that she had been raped as a 15-year-old by a well-known, Oscar winning actor as well as by Harvey Weinstein, as she has been alleging for years.

After that appearance, McGowan, who is the star of a new documentary about her advocacy work and how she has been part of the Me Too movement, canceled all public appearances.

Yeah. It's not great footage.

I watched the Ronan interview which took place the day after this incident and she is composed and articulate. She also says that Dier was a plant, there specifically to undermine and provoke Rose.

Which would make sense.

I'm really not sure how Rose campaigning for workplace equality and gender equality somehow = Rose being anti-trans, especially seeing as she's been LGBT-allied her whole life.

Genuine question - what did she SAY that was wrong?

I have no background into what she's known for, so I'm only going off what she's said in this video.

She absolutely did overreact, that much I do agree with.

I asked the same last time someone posted this, but no one answered. She didn't say anything bad that I heard at least? Sum1 wanna explain?

No idea who these people are but I agree with the bald woman.
She defended herself and then flipped off for being judged. Sounds reasonable.

+1. Wish she had just listened and acknowledged that trans women do experience disproportionate sexual abuse.
