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.
