The actress was dropped after calling out Adam Sandler for his sexism.

A few days ago, we reported on Rose McGowan's public shaming of Adam Sandler for having women show up to readings for his movies dressed in "tight clothing" that highlighted their breasts. It seems that Hollywood's sexism wasn't finished rearing its ugly head, however, as McGowan just announced that her agent has dumped her. 

Last night, McGowan exposed her agent in the same way she expose "Madam Panhandler":



However, she then went on to tell Defamer how she really felt about the whole situation:

“A lot of agents aren’t supportive of their talent in any way. Nobody’s understood how to represent me, which is why, other than film publicists, I currently have no representation other than my lawyer. I don’t need it.”

The interview also revealed the name of agent, Sheila Wenzel, but Rose has gone on to say that it might not have been her decision at all. She came to the defense of her former agent on Twitter:



On Thursday afternoon the under-fire agency issued a statement to the Hollywood Reporter confirming the departure. “Sheila Wenzel, Rose McGowan’s primary agent, parted ways with Innovative before McGowan’s tweet yesterday,” the statement reads. “Wenzel was not the primary agent for Amanda Seyfried and Britt Robertson.”

Meanwhile, a source at Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison, who denied all responsibility for the offending casting note, has released a response: “They were not aware the casting director sent this note out,” the source said. “They felt it was completely inappropriate and have made sure that it has not been sent out again.”

McGowan has been receiving support from many within the entertainment community, including those who have come out to tell their stories. One of the loudest voices is Jessica Chastain:
