Speaking out against sexism can apparently lead to getting fired. Actress Rose McGowan claims to have been fired by her agent after she publicly spoke about sexist wardrobe requirements for a casting call.
Rose McGowan, mainly known for her role as Paige Matthews in the drama television series, Charmed, took to Twitter last week to express her frustration over a casting note about the wardrobe requirements for a part in an upcoming film starring Adam Sandler
McGowan, who received an audition script, was told actresses auditioning for the part were to wear a “black (or dark) formfitting tank that shows off cleavage (push-up bras encouraged). And formfitting leggings or jeans.”
“I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about bulls**t in Hollywood. Hahaha #douchebags #awesome #bringit,” she wrote to her followers.
The 41-year-old star shows no regrets about speaking out against the casting note, and rightfully so. McGowan told Entertainment Weekly, “I was offended by the fact that went through so many people’s hands and nobody red flagged it. This is so normal to so many people. It was probably even a girl that had to type it up.”
