For Harvey Weinstein's birthday, Rose McGowan wants him to know that he has lost. The actress posted a menacing video on Twitter saying, "We win."
A Birthday Message
The Hollywood mogul turned 66 on Monday, March 19. McGowan did not miss the chance to address him on Twitter and remind him that she did warn him two decades ago.
"Happy birthday, Harvey Weinstein," the Charmed actress says to the camera in a selfie Twitter video. "I told you we'd be coming. I told you 20 years ago if I heard of you doing this to another girl or a woman we would come for you, I would come for you."
"Happy f**king birthday. From all of us," McGowan continues, dropping her voice to a menacing whisper. "We win."

McGowan is known for being one of Weinstein's alleged sexual assault victims as the actress revealed that the producing mogul raped her in 1997. She remains a vocal advocate of the #MeToo movement, especially on Twitter where she often goes to post her thoughts on Weinstein and other sexual harassment issues.
Her active role in the public condemnation of the Hollywood executive has left her feeling unsafe as she recently claimed being followed, intimidated, and hacked in relation to her claims against Weinstein.
"I'm sure he would prefer it if I were dead," McGowan tells The Mirror. "He's a sociopath. I am not afraid - but I should be."
Over 80 women have come forward to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault. He has denied all the allegations against him.
The Weinstein Co. Files For Bankruptcy
It's definitely not a happy birthday for Weinstein as his company filed bankruptcy on the same day.
In an effort to survive the post-scandal landscape, Weinstein Co. is seeking bankruptcy protection as it faces the potential for a buyout by Lantern Capital, a report from Variety says. Lantern's "stalking horse" bid is reportedly $310 million in cash, plus an additional $114.5 million in liabilities associated with television and film projects.
As part of the company's ongoing negotiations with the New York attorney general, Weinstein Co. has also released their employees from their existing non-disclosure agreements.
"No one should be afraid to speak out or coerced to stay quiet," Weinstein Co. says in an official statement. "The Company thanks the courageous individuals who have already come forward. Your voices have inspired a movement for change across the country and around the world."
