Rose McGowan has published a tweet claiming she was let go by her "wussy acting agent".

The American actress and director says she was fired for speaking up "about the bullshit in Hollywood".

I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bullshit in Hollywood. Hahaha. #douchebags #awesome #BRINGIT

The awesome thing about being an artist? You can't be fired from your own mind. #FREEDOM

McGowan's publicist declined to comment, telling BuzzFeed "we'll pass on this one for now". Her agents didn't immediately respond when BuzzFeed asked whether they had dropped her as a client.

A week earlier McGowan tweeted a script note which told actresses to wear a "form fitting tank that shows off cleavage".

casting note that came w/script I got today. For real. name of male star rhymes with Madam Panhandler hahahaha I die

McGowan confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the male star mentioned in the tweet was Adam Sandler.

She later added she was "insulted by the instructions to read the script for context".

I was insulted by the instructions to 'read the script for context.' Hahaha

Meanwhile, McGowan has been busy doing press for her short film Dawn.

The day after McGowan sent out these tweets, her agent Sheila Wenzel left her talent agency Innovative Artist, according to Variety.
