Rose McGowan calls Alyssa Milano a ‘fraud’ for supporting accused Joe Biden

Activist Rose McGowan has called out former Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano over her support for presidential candidate Joe Biden, the subject of a recently surfaced sexual assault accusation.

Both McGowan and Milano have been outspoken regarding the #MeToo movement — opening the door for any unspoken sexual assault victims to come forward without being judged or harassed — and were active voices in bringing down serial sexual assaulters like Harvey Weinstein.

Milano, 47, recently addressed her endorsement of Democratic frontrunner Biden, specifically in regard to the 1993 assault allegation against his former staffer, Tara Reade, who came forward with her allegation last month.

In response to Milano’s support, McGowan called her a “fraud.”

During the interview on Monday, shared on Milano’s Twitter page, the actor noted that it took her a long time to speak out against Weinstein, too.

“I believe that even though we should believe women… That does not mean at the expense of giving men their due process and investigation situations,” said Milano. “It’s got to be fair in both directions.”

She noted as further justification for supporting Biden that the Time’s Up Legal Fund chose not to take on Reade’s case.

“I just don’t feel comfortable throwing away a decent man that I’ve known for 15 years in this time of complete chaos without there being a thorough investigation,” Milano continued. “So, I’m just sort of staying quiet about it.”

“We’re destroying lives if we publicly don’t go through the right steps in order to find out if an accusation is credible or not,” she said in response to being called “hypocritical.”

In an interview with podcast host Katie Halper, Reade recounted an alleged assault by Biden in 1993.

The accusation has been deemed false by Biden’s deputy communications director Kate Bedingfield, Fox News reports.
