Well that's a choice!
We shouldn't be entirely shocked by this bold move by Miz McGowan as she's been making headlines lately for her controversial comments regarding Caitlyn Jenner's Woman Of The Year award acceptance speech. Oof!
Rose McGowan Clarifies Her Criticism Of Caitlyn Jenner — 'I Am Not, Nor Will I Ever Be, Transphobic'
The 42-year-old had written on Monday that she felt the former Olympian wasn't embodying the title "by a long f*cking shot" after the reality star said the hardest part about being a female was deciding what clothes to wear.
But on Tuesday, the actress took to Twitter to clarify her comments, saying that they didn't come from a place of bigotry, just a place of frustration, writing in a note:
"Let me take this moment to point out that I am not, nor will I ever be, transphobic. The idea is laughable. Disliking something a trans person has said is no different thank disliking something a man has said or that a woman has said. Being trans doesn't make one immune from criticism."
The Charmed alum acknowledged that it must be difficult being the 66-year-old, but explained that she was angry because she wanted the I Am Cait star to use her celebrity to fight inequality, rather than perpetuate stereotypes, adding:

In a Facebook post on Monday (which has since been deleted), the 42-year-old criticized the I Am Cait star for saying the "hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear" in her acceptance speech at the ceremony on November 9.

We were absolutely devastated to learn about the shooting Thursday at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.
A gunman opened fire on the school's campus, killing as many as 10 people and injuring 20 others. This terrible tragedy is one of many in the United States this year alone.
