But followers were quick to note that McGowan's first interaction on social media failed to recognize the recent suicide of her former manager who represented the starlet during the time Rose alleged Harvey Weinstein raped her.

Actress Rose McGowan sent condolences to the family of Jill Messick, her former manager who took her own life Wednesday.

While promoting her memoir fearless, where she discusses the alleged attack in great detail, she told The New York Times in October that Messick had arranged the Weinstein meeting, which began in a hotel room.

Ashley Paulman continued, 'Rose is at the helm of her own cis white feminism- selfish, self important, and she has publicly tormented victims. The fact that one man could cause so much damage is astounding but tragically true. "The bad man did this to us both", McGowan wrote, referencing Weinstein. May you find peace on the astral plane. " McGowan responded on Twitter that her managers, publicists and assistants were all complicit in what had happened to her".

Understandable, considering Hamlin failed to make a podium in either of the two World Cup seasons leading up to the Sochi Games. This year, a rare situation ensued when Hamlin and Davis tied in a vote of 4-4, causing plan B - a coin toss - to take place.

Weinstein has called McGowan's rape accusation "a bold lie" through his lawyer, claiming the actress told Messick soon afterward that the encounter was consensual.

"[Jill] became collateral damage in an already horrific story", the Messick family's statement read in part.

Messick's family rejected the suggestion that she was not supportive to McGowan, saying she was "the first person who stood up on Rose's behalf". She had posted a photo of herself receiving an award for her speaking out against sexual assaults. "One of them was Jill, who chose to remain silent in the face of Rose's slanderous statements against her for fear of undermining the many individuals who came forward in truth", the statement said.

Her movie production credits include "She's All That", starring Freddie Prinze Jr, Mark Waters' "Mean Girls", art biopic "Frida", with Salma Hayek, and action film "Masterminds" with Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson. But they also added that her former client's crusade against Harvey Weinstein had taken a toll on the 50-year-old by dragging her into the incredibly public battle.
