Colbert continued, “But now, we know that that’s what happened. Did you ever think that you were crazy for thinking that?”
McGowan told Colbert, “No, I always knew it was everybody else.” She then added, “I see things.”
Back in Oct. 2017, McGowan was mentioned in a New York Times article that shared allegations of sexual misconduct against Weinstein, stretching back over a decade. In the exposé, the NYT reported that in 1997 McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with the Weinstein “after an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival.” In response, Weinstein’s attorney Charles J. Harder said the article was “saturated with false and defamatory statements.”
Shortly after the exposé was published, McGowan took to Twitter to accuse Weinstein of rape. Since that time, McGowan has been a major part of the #MeToo movement.
