Rose McGowan Unapologetic for Comparing Red Carpet to Rape

The 'Charmed' alum comes to her own defense on Twitter after getting the heat for referring to red carpet as 'visual rape.'

AceShowbiz - Rose McGowan defends herself after comparing being photographed on red carpet to getting sexually assaulted. She noted in an op-ed that a reporter once asked her if she "felt it was inappropriate for the camera to pan up and down [a women's] body," and she replied, "It felt like visual rape."

As the actress came under fire for her comment, she quickly took it to Twitter to defend herself. "Of the spirit, it's a metaphor. Jesus," she tweeted. "And I know what rape is. You might not. You don't know what it's like to be consumed by cameras as a woman & dissected for pleasure."

To a fan who said she insulted rape survivors with the comparison, McGowan responded, "I'm one, too. Sit down." She then posted a picture of herself holding a statuette of Marilyn Monroe. "Ask her if it felt rapey. And you don't get to tell me how I feel. So f**k off," she captioned.
