Rose McGowan is calling out the media for “poisoning” the public with their daily coverage on Donald Trump. In an open letter to CNN, FOX, CBS, ABC, NBC, VIACOM, The Murdochs and the Republican presidential candidate, the actress slammed the major networks for “causing a worldwide sickness.”

“After the Republican National Convention I wrote an open letter to a rabid Trump supporter,” McGowan began. “I realize now the letter was for you, Donald and media men. It’s you I’ve been wanting to talk to. You who have been stressing me and most of the nation out to the point of a diagnosable sickness.”

Calling Trump a “murderer in the making,” she urges the press to “go rogue, be brave” and to look for their humanity.

“We, the public, need you to think differently and to do better,” she wrote. “It’s that easy to be a better person and to do the right thing no matter the cost. The time is now.”

This is not the first time that McGowan has expressed her concerns over a specific topic. She recently wrote an op-ed about Variety’s controversial Renée Zellweger article and also criticized an “X-Men: Apocalypse” poster for depicting violence against women.

Dear Enablers and Donald,

After the Republican National Convention I wrote an open letter to a rabid Trump supporter. I realize now the letter was for you, Donald and media men. It’s you I’ve been wanting to talk to.  You who have been stressing me and most of the nation out to the point of a diagnosable sickness. WE ARE BEING POISONED. We, the public, are being sickened by an ever expanding assault on our right to live a healthy and free life. Donald & you ratings driven colluders, are holding us the public hostage and exposing us to disease. A massive DISease.

Our symptoms are knots in our shoulders, sick feelings in the pit of our vaginas, stomach tightness, shortness of breath, wildly elevated stress levels- we are now chronically experiencing a true mass illness.  

Caused by you. You all had a hand in this. You must take ownership of this situation.

You are causing a worldwide sickness. You are POISONING us as sure as Flint is poisoning its citizens. You are poisoning your very own family and us, your brothers and sisters.

This is real. We are sick. Living with your daily reign of terror cancer, and it is terror cancer, is something we are unwilling to do for another minute. I do not want to live my life this way. I am a proud AMERICAN & GLOBAL CITIZEN who’s head is bowed to her knees in because she is sickened every day. Because of you. It is NOT most of America who should be ashamed, it is YOU for propagating this propaganda. 

We, the public, need for you to look for your humanity. We, the public, need you to think differently and to do better. Think different. Do better. It’s that easy to be a better person and to  do the right thing no matter the cost. The time is now.

Stop poisoning humanity. Go rogue, reverse course, be BRAVE. He is a murderer in the making.  Do NOT AID AND ABET A CRIME. 

UNPLUG THE MICROPHONES 
STOP COVERING HIM 
TURN THE LIGHTS OUT
STOP THE CANCER
It is time to RISE and say NO MORE
