Another week, another Adam Sandler story. Just when you thought you go for a while without having to hear about grossly offensive jokes or juvenile humor comes a story from actress Rose McGowan, who last week called out Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison for its sexist “wardrobe note” on a script call. “Black (or dark) form fitting tank that shows off cleavage (push up bras encouraged). And form fitting leggings or jeans. Nothing white,” reads the note, which McGowan tweeted with the comment “casting note that came w/script I got today. For real. name of male star rhymes with Madam Panhandler hahahaha I die”
McGowan explained that she’s “not trying to vilify Sandler,” rather Hollywood’s culture of institutionalized sexism. “It was just so dumb. I was offended by the stupidity more than anything. I was offended by the fact that went through so many people’s hands and nobody red flagged it. This is normal to so many people. It was probably even a girl that had to type it up. It’s institutionally okay,” she tells EW. Now McGowan is paying the price for speaking her mind. Her agent fired her. “I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bullshit in Hollywood. Hahaha,” she tweeted yesterday. Oh, and she won’t be appearing in the Sandler film. Then again, who would want to? Other than Vanilla Ice, of course, and people who think that it’s funny that Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks.
