Rose McGowan on Harvey Weinstein’s Arrest: “I Didn’t Believe This Day Would Come”

Rose McGowan on Harvey Weinstein’s Arrest: “I Didn’t Believe This Day Would Come”


Weinstein surrendered himself to authorities this morning. 

Harvey Weinstein surrendered to the NYPD today after prosecutors charged the disgraced Hollywood producer with two rape charges, one first-degree and one-third degree, and one criminal sexual act in the first degree. His bail was set at $1 million, with a $10 million bond alternative. He also had to surrender his passports and be fitted with a tracking device because he'll need the court's approval if he wants to leave New York or Connecticut.

As Vulture reported, moments after his surrender, Rose McGowan processed her alleged rapist's arrest live on Megyn Kelly Today.

"I actually didn't believe this day would come. I didn't believe this day would come. I'm so proud of Lucia Evans and Paz [de la Huerta]," she said, referencing two of the women who brought their cases to the New York authorities. "We have to understand, he turned himself in on a Friday. That's a slow news weekend, Memorial Day. He still has privileges from high up somewhere. But this is a big strike into the heart of abuse of power. This shows people worldwide, which is what I was hoping the whole time, that this cannot and will not stand."

Weinstein's investigation is still ongoing and his next court appearance is scheduled for July 30.
