“Feminist” Lawyer Lisa Bloom Was Ready To “Slut Shame” Rose McGowan To Protect Harvey Weinstein

Lisa Bloom is a high-profile attorney known for taking on cases of feminist importance—seemingly following in the footsteps of her mother, famous attorney Gloria Allred. But according to this Daily Beast report, she had proactively contacted journalist Ronan Farrow earlier this year on behalf of her client Harvey Weinstein…offering “dirt” about actress Rose McGowan’s past.

Farrow was developing an expose for NBC regarding accusations against Weinstein at the time (that was later spiked by the network), and Bloom had phoned him regarding one of his planned interviewees, McGowan.

According to “knowledgeable sources inside and outside NBC,” the lawyer said to Farrow:

“I don’t know if you’ve talked to Rose McGowan, but we have files on her and her… history…”

What Bloom offered was a file on McGowan’s past sexual history…in an effort to “slut shame” the actress and make her lose credibility. Farrow was reportedly “stunned and disgusted” by the lawyer’s actions.

Bloom has since dropped Weinstein as a client.

McGowan took to Facebook to address Bloom:

“Your very name makes my stomach clench with a stressed tightness that takes my breath away. As does your mercenary act of depravity. Did you think of how it would affect victims to see you champion a rapist? How it felt to those you once ‘fought for,’ for them to know that you used them. You remember them right? They were the victims of assaults, women you’d previously helped. You lied to those hurt women and hid your true character. You wanted a shortcut to fame.”

As was the case with Weinstein friend Donna Karan—who initially blamed the way Weinstein’s alleged victims dressed for their harassment and abuse—we have a powerful woman who had a reputation of being a feminist, but appears to have had a conflict of interest. With “friends” like these, who needs enemies?
