Rose McGowan is calling out her agent for calling her out for calling out Adam Sandler.

The aforementioned bullshit that McGowan spoke up about had to do with a casting note for an Adam Sandler project. McGowan posted the skimpy wardrobe description for female actors and tweeted "hahahaha I die."

The post got nearly 3,000 faves and retweets, and despite McGowan's layers of disguise, people somehow figured out that "Madam Panhandler" equals Adam Sandler. McGowan told EW:

It was just so dumb. I was offended by the stupidity more than anything. I was offended by the fact that went through so many people's hands and nobody red flagged it. This is normal to so many people.

She also explained the source of her "hahahaha."

The part that made me laugh was where it said, “Make sure you read the script so you understand the context of the scene." [laughs] That was the part that made me laugh the hardest.

In this case, her laughing—in public and directed at a rich, rich man—got her fired by her agent. If it was the same agent she described in this anecdote to EW, though, it might end up being a good change.

When I did my first film, I was told by my agent that I would need to have long hair so men in this town would want to f— me and hire me. That was said to a 17 year old.

Such inspiring advice.

McGowan is not backing down, and was quick to hashtag the agent a douchebag. And as for the scenic context that informs the push-up bras? I guess we'll have to wait for the movie to find out.
