Rose McGowan Tapes Cryptic Birthday Wish For Harvey Weinstein: ‘Happy F*cking Birthday’

In a particularly dark video message, actress Rose McGowan wished Harvey Weinstein a happy birthday. Sort of.
Around 3 a.m. Tuesday, the cryptic post appeared on Twitter, hashtagged #RoseArmy.
“Happy birthday, Harvey Weinstein,” McGowan said. “I told you we’d be coming. I told you 20 years ago if I heard of you doing this to another girl or a woman, we would come for you—I would come for you.”
Moving the camera closer to her face, she said, “Happy fucking birthday, from all of us.” Then, just before the video ends, she whispered, “We win.”
As one of the #MeToo movement’s first leaders, McGowan has been an outspoken force against Weinstein, who she says raped her in 1997. Following the alleged assault, she received a $100,000 payout, and Weinstein’s lawyers persuaded her to sign a million-dollar nondisclosure agreement; however, she refused, The New York Times reported.
On Monday, the Weinstein Co. announced it would be filing for bankruptcy and cancelling its nondisclosure agreements that stopped survivors of Weinstein’s alleged behavior from coming forth with their stories.
More than 60 women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct and assault spanning years.
