Actress Asia Argento has threatened fellow #MeToo figurehead Rose McGowan with legal action if she doesn’t retract claims she made about Argento’s alleged sexual relationship with a minor. In a lengthy statement published in August, McGowan claimed Argento had admitted to receiving unsolicited nude photos of actor Jimmy Bennett since he was 12. Argento called out McGowan for the claim last week, but went a step further Monday morning when she threatened a lawsuit. “Dear @RoseMcGowan. It is with genuine regret that I am giving you 24 hours to retract and apologise for the horrendous lies made against me in your statement of August 27th,” wrote Argento. “If you fail to address this libel I will have no option other than to take immediate legal action.” Argento was one of the first to speak out against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct.
