A new Daily Beast report alleges Lisa Bloom tried to discredit Rose McGowan while working for Harvey Weinstein. The article writes that Bloom offered to share files about Rose’s sexual history with journalist Ronan Farrow, who helped break the story.
In the past, Lisa Bloom has done a lot of good. She’s worked with both Mischa Barton and Blac Chyna in “revenge porn” cases. She’s been touted as a feminist attorney like her mom, Gloria Allred. But her decision to advise Weinstein didn’t sit well with many women, particularly assault survivors. And if these allegations are true, she did more than just act as an advisor.
Bloom, who has talked about being a feminist and a champion of women, has obviously received a lot of backlash. It shouldn’t have to be said at this point, but a victim’s sexual history has nothing to do with assaults.
Lisa Bloom’s mom, Gloria Allred, even weighed in on her work with Weinstein.
And if the Daily Beast report is true, the situation is even worse than it initially seemed. For what it’s worth, Bloom has denied the allegations.
It’s always disappointing to see women tearing other women down — especially under the guise of being feminist. You can check out the whole report on The Daily Beast.
