Rose McGowan Anthony Bourdain tweet: Did the Harvery Weinstein #metoo accuser go overboard in her laments? Social media wonders if the actress hijacked Anthony Bourdain’s suicide death.
Making a cringe worthy and palpably false cry to the universe Friday was #metoo and eternal Harvey Weinstein hater, actress Rose McGowan who took to social media to lament the tragic suicide death of celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain.
While McGowan wasn’t the only celebrity who felt compelled to share her pathos and sense of loss (publicists always know when to get their clients to joint the me too commiseration bandwagon…) – it was perhaps her over the top manner which mystified and captivated us all. An over the top belligerent performance that the
formerly on screen actress has been imploring for the past year to anyone who will hear her- ‘I am also a victim and I am still mad as hell- and why didn’t you consult me before you killed yourself?! I miss you already.’
Rose McGowan Anthony Bourdain tweet drama migrates to Instagram:
Posted the outspoken actress in a since deleted video tweet (who these days has made social media her real stage performance d’raison ), ‘Anthony I am so mad at you. You were so loved, the world is not better without you’.
Continued the emotional actress as she stared at us through her video monitor, ‘I have a message for those considering suicide as a solution to a temporary problem. It’s not forever. And the world will not be better off without you.”
Referencing the late celebrity chef’s Italian girlfriend, Argento, McGowan continued:
‘Oh Asia Argento, you’ve been through so much,’ she added. ‘Anthony, why?’
‘Please call a suicide hotline. This will affect people across the globe because Bourdain was international. Please call.’
Worth noting, Argento, like McGowan, was one of the dozens of women to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment (Weinstein has ‘unequivocally’ denied ‘any allegations of non-consensual sex’).
Added McGowan, ‘Please call a hotline. Please reach out. Asia needed you, Anthony. We needed you. Please come back.’
And that ironically might have been the problem and source of torment. Being needed and unable to give to even oneself and seeking yet another escape. Even death. But Rose continued, resigned not to leave at that but to remind us that she too had eternal pain to share with us.
But Rose was just getting started….
Asia loves you. Your daughter loves you. Anna and Nicola love you. You were not just loved, your were beloved. And you chose a permanent solution to a temporary problem. She needed you. We all needed you. Please if you are at the edge, reach out to a hotline or a doctor. Do not choose a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Oh, Bourdain. Please come back. Asia. My Asia. Who has been through more than most could bear. I wrap my arms around you.
Rose McGowan Anthony Bourdain drama: Your pain is also my pain (always).
Sharing a photo of Bourdain that Bourdain’s girlfriend, Asia Argento had originally posted on Instagram, McGowan implored, ‘Asia loves you. Your daughter loves you. Anna and Nicola love you. You were not just loved, your were beloved. And you chose a permanent solution to a temporary problem. She needed you. We all needed you. Please if you are at the edge, reach out to a hotline or a doctor. Do not choose a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Oh, Bourdain. Please come back. Asia. My Asia. Who has been through more than most could bear. I wrap my arms around you.”
Despair, depression, demons, self deprecation, self descent does not work that way. Ever. Rose this is not about you. It is about one man in the public light who simply chose to gave up the fight and daily struggle that we all turn up to in life. Some days it’s easy going. Some days it’s pure torment. It’s life. And perhaps that is why Bourdain’s suicide death hit us like a clobbering bat.
To be fair to McGowan. Bourdain’s death presumably hit her harder than us, perhaps because they may have had a friendship, a repore and lived in the public eye. But that didn’t stop many on social media wondering if the actress had gone overboard in her laments and hijacking the celebrated chef’s demise to turn our attention on her particular struggles: ‘I was sexually assaulted, I want revenge. I want more eyeballs. I want my career back. I want the public to never stop crying for me.’
And then there were these postings on social media that caught this author’s attention, see what you think?
She is like a b l e e d i n g s o r e that won’t heal.
LOOK AT ME. LOOK AT ME. LOOK AT MEEEEEEEE
Her video is all about her. Nothing to do with him.
Always has been, always will be. Never liked her but felt bad for her…for a minute. It then became the endless Rose McGowen “All About Me” Tour & my sympathy waned. This little drama and the ridiculously manipulative video, “Look at my grief” is beyond the pale. I’d like to slap her for this. Be gone, lady, you’re worn out your welcome.
Boo hoo hoo. Cry me a friggin river Rose. This is NOT about you. Go home to your safe space and cry your friggin eyes out.
Making the tragedy all about you…you are disgusting Rosie..
This woman does my head in.
Rose needs inpatient care for a long time and out of the press.
I do believe we have a consensus here, Rose should put the phone down and seek help for herself.
That tweet Rose McGowan posted regarding Bourdain’s death is so cringeworthy…Is there ANYTHING this woman won’t make about HERSELF? “I am so mad at you…I needed you…” Bitch, it’s NOT about you. And that video she posted… pic.twitter.com/d0Nvl6GCrO

Anthony Bourdain had more options than most people. Handy hotlines to call wasn’t what he needed. The same is true for many suffering people.
