Rose McGowan has warned of an upcoming war on women and LGBT+ people, saying anyone defined as “other” will be its subject.

Speaking to Mic.com, McGowan warned of the upcoming presidency of Donald Trump.

She says: “I didn’t want to wake up to a Donald Trump presidency, so I didn’t go to sleep.”

“It was a gray morning, as if the sun didn’t want to waste its rays,” McGowan recalled in an interview. “Sick to my stomach, I roamed the desolate morning streets of New York. Everyone who was laughing was suspect. Everyone with dull eyes my immediate compatriot. Welcome to a divided America.”

“This is a war on women, this is a war on LGBTQ and anybody who goes under the definition of ‘other’,” she adds.

Check out the interview with McGowan below:

McGowan has been a controversial figure on LGBT+ rights in the past.

Last year she hit out at Caitlyn Jenner – claiming she has “male privilege” and “doesn’t understand” being female.

It’s not the first time the actress has been outspoken on LGBT issues – she apologised last year after claiming that gay people “fought for the right to stand on top of a float wearing an orange speedo” taking MDMA.

McGowan had claimed that gay men are “more misogynistic” than straight men, after holding a defiant party at a Brunei-owned hotel facing a boycott over the country’s anti-gay laws.
