Without coverage of the terrible things he does, would Donald Trump simply go away? Rose McGowan thinks so: In an email sent to Vulture and other news outlets Wednesday afternoon, the Charmed star asks the media to refrain from covering the Republican nominee’s presidential campaign. “We are being poisoned” by stories featuring Trump’s violent rhetoric, the actress says. “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.” McGowan, who has previously spoken out on Caitlyn Jenner, gay-rights protests, and misogynist billboards, asks the “ratings-driven colluders” in the media to “Go rogue, reverse course, be brave. [Trump] is a murderer in the making. Do not aid and abet a crime.”

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 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
