Actress Rose McGowan is quoted today as saying:
“I imagine, had I grown up in Belfast, I would 100 per cent have been in the IRA,”
Regardless of the context of the words, her comments at the Toronto Film Festival blatantly supporting terrorism so close to September 11th (the story was run today) make you wonder if the actress wanted to damage her career globally. Would she as glibly remark that she wished she’d hijacked a plane and flown it into the Pentagon or the Twin Towers seven years ago?

BBC News have started reporting the “Fury over actress’s IRA comments“.
The Dailymash also has an article on this, but it is less serious: “If only we’d had more idiot acresses, says McGuinness“
