Hey, guess what? Harvey Weinstein just celebrated his 66th birthday on March 19. But you know who likely doesn’t give a care whatsoever whether he had a happy birthday or not? The multitude of women who have come forward in the last six months with accusations of sexual harassment, sexual abuse and rape.
One of Weinstein’s most active critics, actor and activist Rose McGowan, wanted the disgraced mogul to know that she, along with numerous other women, were not sending him their warmest wishes on his big day. On Monday, she posted a sarcastic, mocking video addressed to him on Twitter.
“I told you we’d be coming. I told you 20 years ago if I heard of you doing this to another girl or woman, we would come for you, I would come for you,” McGowan says in the video, posted to her Twitter account Tuesday, captioned, “A message to Harvey Weinstein on his birthday #RoseArmy.”

She ended the video with this poignant message: “Happy fucking birthday. From all of us. We win.”
McGowan has been one of the most outspoken of Weinstein’s many accusers, working with other high-profile victims including Ashley Judd and Angelina Jolie to shed light on his bad behavior. She’s also been open about the hate and intimidation she’s received online since coming forward.
“I’m sure he would prefer it if I were dead,” she said. “He’s a sociopath. I am not afraid — but I should be. The people I find worse than him are his lawyers. The way they are acting has been disgusting. The people around him, that have supported him in his attempt to dominate and abuse women, are monsters, just as much as he is. There is no rehabilitation for that type of soul. They just need to fall off the planet. He doesn’t believe he has done anything wrong.”
