‘Being photographed on red carpet like visual rape’

‘Being photographed on red carpet like visual rape’
Actor Rose McGowan has compared 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.”

The 43-year-old ‘Charmed’ alum received criticism for her remark and she has come to her own defense on Twitter, reported Aceshowbiz. “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 raped. And you don’t get to tell me how I feel,” she captioned.
