Rose McGowan: Stop Blaming Bourdain’s Girlfriend : Newser


In the wake of Anthony Bourdain’s suicide, Rose McGowan is asking people not to place blame—on Bourdain himself or on his girlfriend, actress Asia Argento. “Anthony’s internal war was his war, but now she’s been left on the battlefield to take the bullets,” McGowan wrote in a letter sent to the Hollywood Reporter and other outlets. “Do NOT do the sexist thing and burn a woman on the pyre of misplaced blame.” Instead, wrote McGowan, who said Argento was sitting across from her as she composed the letter, people should learn about mental illness, depression, and suicide before hurting survivors by “judging that which we do not understand, that which can never fully be understood.” Often when we lose someone we want to “lash out and blame,” McGowan writes. “You must not sink to that level. Suicide is a horrible choice, but it is that person’s choice.”
