Weinstein slams Rose McGowan

In response to Affeck's statement condemning Weinstein in October, McGowan attacked Affleck. Again, Weinstein has denied the allegations of nonconsensual acts.

The Affleck missive is one of two Brafman released.

The former Charmed star has been making several appearances on TV to promote her new memoir courageous, talking about an alleged encounter with Weinstein at a Utah hotel during the Sundance Film Festival in 1997, when he reportedly raped her.

After accusing Weinstein of rape, which he had denied, McGowan was given unflattering labels that her sister tried to avoid. "It is an affront not only to Rose, but to the hundreds of women who have come forward with their stories of harassment, sexual abuse, and rape perpetrated by Mr. Weinstein and those like him".

In an email Affleck reportedly sent Weinstein on July 26, months before the allegations against the producer began to pour in, Affleck wrote, "She never told me nor did I ever infer that she was attacked by anyone". Any accounts to the contrary are false.

Rose McGowan has been a central figure when it comes to raising awareness about sexual harassment and sexual assault in Hollywood. After Messick stopped working with McGowan, she accepted a job at Weinstein's Miramax production company. When she arrived at Weinstein's suite, however, the studio executive pulled her into a room with a jacuzzi and took off her clothes. "She's not wrong", McGowan said. After she told him what happened, he supposedly said, "Goddamn it. I told him to stop doing that!"

McGowan, who reached a settlement with Weinstein in the 90s, has accused him of rape. Messick statement said that McGowan decried the hot tub sexual encounter as consensual.

Actress and activist Rose McGowan is calling out disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein after he denied her accusations that he sexually assault her. "Accounts otherwise are lies".

The email's existence will no doubt add to questions about the origins of McGowan's hostility towards Affleck.

Meanwhile, Weinstein's team has a plethora of other concerns at the moment. It sticks a knife in everyone's heart that this man was allowed to continue in his... the way he worked on people, over the bodies of women. Affleck would seem to owe Weinstein a lot. The two were at the festival promoting their Weinstein-backed film "Phantoms".

Her tweet sparked social media outrage against Affleck that hasn't really gone away. The "they" she refers to includes anyone she believes myopically minimizes the injustices against her and other survivors. These crimes have also been investigated thoroughly by the paper of record, the New York Times, as well as the New Yorker's incredibly detailed coverage by Ronan Farrow.

As one of Weinstein's most outspoken accusers, the former-actress-turned-feminist-provocateur has helped the Me Too movement rip open a hulking hole in the public's consciousness, and now McGowan, 44, is stepping inside with a gripping memoir that wages war on the patriarchy and with Citizen Rose, E!'s docu-series about her battle against sexual violence.

"When we met up the following day, she hesitantly told me of her own accord that during the meeting that night before she had gotten into a hot tub with Mr. Weinstein", Messick's email allegedly read.
