Fired for calling out sexism?
Rose McGowan, 41, stood up to Hollywood sexism a few days ago when she tweeted a sleazy script note from an Adam Sandler movie, and now she’s been fired by her own agent.
Sandler, whose increasingly heinous crimes against cinema still inexplicably garner huge audiences, must be a pretty powerful player.
“I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bullshit in Hollywood. Hahaha. #douchebags #awesome #BRINGIT,” she tweeted.
The fireable offense? Tweeting a script note for the Adam Sandler film that requested actresses auditioning wear “formfitting” tops that shows off their cleavage, “push-up bras encouraged.”
McGowan wasn’t having any of it and tweeted the note, commenting, “casting note that came w/script I got today. For real. name of male star rhymes with Madam Panhandler hahahaha I die.”
She told Entertainment Weekly that she was “offended by the stupidity” of the note.
“This is normal to so many people. It was probably even a girl that had to type it up. It’s institutionally OK,” she said.
