After seeing a video of Rose McGowan and Holly Combs trashing the new Charmed reboot, one of the stars of the show slammed the OG actresses for their behavior. After seeing the backlash, Rose issued a clapback to the star.
In a video shared on Twitter, Rose and Holly giggle as McGowan says the new show sucks even though she hasn’t seen it. She went on to say that she’s happy people have jobs because of it.
Sarah Jeffery who plays one of the new age Charmed sisters slammed her predecessor for putting down women of color in a tweet that chastised the women for behaving this way.
Jeffery received mixed responses in her reply section. While some agree that the new Charmed is a good show that displays another side of witchcraft (one that includes women of color) others feel that their criticism wasn’t about race — it was about the quality of the series.
She wrote: ‘Dear Sarah Jeffery, I honestly had no idea who you were til you tweeted. I have been too busy fighting monsters & fighting for a massive Cultural Reset to notice who’s in the reboot. Absolutely nothing to do with race, that’s quite a stretch you took. I’m beyond glad any WOC has a well paying job. Hell yes to that. I’m sure you are a great actress. My quibble (google it) is about execs & producers & @wb network trading on years of my work & name in such a cynical and obvious way – a money grab to cash in on the Charmed name. I do not care that they remade it, I have far bigger things I’m dealing with. I do not nor will I watch a show I disagree with on principle.’
1/2 You know, I saw this earlier and I refrained from saying anything. I thought, better to just let them shout into the abyss. But I do want to say, I find it sad and quite frankly pathetic to see grown women behaving this way. https://t.co/MuyZCZjbCp

The actress went on to say: ‘This is not my ego trashing the reboot, this is a criticism of creators (those are the ones who should be embarrassed) with little to no imagination making bank off of years of us busting our ass to create a legacy that you are actually profiting off of as well. I care that the original fans weren’t listened to. I care that Hollywood won’t stop making remakes that don’t need to be remade. It’s a formula that’s gone on for too long. Mediocrity rules there, not just sociopaths. There’s no soul or heart in something made purely for profit whilst refusing to elevate and innovate. Reboots will always be in the shadow, the originals will always be the sun.’
She ended her message by wishing Sarah well.
Which side are you on in this feud?
