Don’t Trust Hollywood’s #MeToo Moment (Yet)

Rose McGowan shames Hollywood anew on a scandal that isn’t getting enough attention.

Hollywood might pull a muscle with all the industry back slapping over its #MeToo response.

The recent Golden Globes telecast doubled as a NOW symposium. Actress after actress declared the Harvey Weinstein era was over. Done. Kaput.

Let’s hope they’re right.

More recently, stars who happily appeared in Woody Allen films suddenly felt shame, giving back their salaries to appease the #MeToo movement.

McGowan did so again this week, targeting a powerhouse agency in the process. Once again, she appears to be right. The New York Times reported late last year that CAA helped arrange client meetings with Weinstein despite knowing how he allegedly treated young starlets.

Creative Artists Agency (CAA) represents some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

A Page Six source says “it’s amazing they’ve managed to escape all this scandal unscathed,” considering Weinstein’s ties with the organization. It’s true that the revelation drew few follow-up press reports.

Meanwhile, CAA served up a public apology for its actions and opened up office space to the #TimesUp movement for business purposes. The agency also canceled its annual Golden Globes party.
