Rose McGowan accused “Politically Incorrect” Host Bill Maher of saying some crass things to her while she was a guest on his show in the late 90s. McGowan shared on Twitter Friday that the alleged incident “turned her stomach”. The “Scream” actress tagged Maher in her social media message to make sure he knew exactly who was coming for him. “@billmaher Here's a memory I'd like to share with you, I bet you don’t remember, but I sure do,” started the retired actress.

“I was so excited to be on your show & get to flex my mind instead of my face. Here's what happened. All I can say, Bill, you got the face you deserved.” McGowan then linked to another, longer draft of her post that set out in detail the alleged incident. “I was on your show Politically Incorrect in the late 90s- as the show returned from a commercial break, you leaned over to me & [sic] whispered in my hear, 'my parents didn't give me a good face, but they did give me a huge c--k,’”

The Details Get Worse

This shocking comment was followed up by some more disturbing details. McGowan described what and how she felt in that moment. “I could feel your hot breath on my ear as an image of both your hideous face & alleged big c--k flashed in my mind,” she wrote. “Both turned my stomach. I've always wondered what you say & do to the girls that aren't famous.” Yikes, it sounds like a completely uncomfortable situation one that McGowan has been in before.

Maher’s “Politically Incorrect” ran from 1993 to 2002 on Comedy Central. The show was a half hour comedy focusing on talking politics with a panel of noteworthy celebrities from the entertainment, sports, journalism and of course political industries. The host more recently got under people’s skin when he chose to comment on presidential candidate Joe Biden’s alleged accuser Tara Readewaiting 27 years to come forward about her purported incident with the politician. “You waited 27 years, you think it couldn't wait a few more months? That's what I'd like to ask Ms. Reade. Why now?”

It Was No Surprise Whose Side He Was On

“I'm not saying why not 27 years ago,” he continued. “I understand it can take victims years to come forward. I'm saying, why not before Super Tuesday? Why not last fall when we still had a dozen other candidates to choose from? Why wait until Biden is our only hope against Trump and then take him down?” he concluded. It certainly is not a good look that Maher is now being called out by a woman who also had her own experience with sexual assault.
