Rose McGowan apology was one of the most awaited events by the gay community. After she made a specific comment that was related to the community, the former "Charmed" actress certainly has a bone to pick with them.

The actress recently spoke with film maker Bret Easton Ellis on his podcast, discussing certain points on misogyny and sexism. However, after some time, the topic then turned to her frustration with what she believes is a lack of support from the gay community for women's rights.

"I see now, basically, people who've fought for the right to stand on top of a float wearing an orange speedo and take molly (MDMA)," McGowan explained. "And, I see no help, and I see no paying it forward, and I have a huge problem with that. There are so many things to help and do, and I see no extending of a hand outside of the gay community to another community. And that's a problem for me."

Rose McGowan also mentioned that "Gays are misogynistic as straight men, if not more so. I have an indictment of the gay community right now. I'm actually really upset with them."

Some of those who were affected by the "Jawbreaker" star's comments took to Twitter to show their dismay. They indicated that the actress's observations did not actually hold water.

One user wrote, "I fought for the right to marry the person I love, not to take drugs in speedos on a parade float. That's spite, plain & simple" while another user tweeted, "Rose McGowan needs to pipe down. In general."

Another Twitter user seemed to have been much angrier than the first two that were mentioned. This other user posted, "The LGBT community does not need Rose McGowan. She's a homophobe masquerading as an advocate. Go away, Rose. The door has closed behind you."

As soon as the backlash poured in, the actress wrote on her Twitter account, reflecting Rose McGowan apology, "I made a dumb generalization, and for that I apologize. For everything else I said, no, I will not."
