Rosanna Arquette’s ‘White And Privileged’ Apology Sparks Backlash

Read Time1 Minute, 21 Seconds

Actress Rosanna Arquette is taking heat for apologising about being “born white and privileged.”

The “Desperately Seeking Susan” actress made her Twitter account private after she posted Wednesday that she felt “so much shame” because of her privilege, The Wrap reported.

“I’m sorry I was born white and privileged,” she wrote. “It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame.”

Arquette, 59, claimed her tweet led to an avalanche of “threatening and cruel” responses — and now she’s had to lock her Twitter account due to the harassment.

“I’m locked to protect myself I was told by FBI to lock it up,” Arquette told the entertainment outlet.

The FBI didn’t respond to the outlet’s request for comment.

Arquette said that she’s received more online harassment since she came forward with allegations against disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

“The Boy’s Club is bigger than it ever [has been], so the attacks are really actually dangerous right now,” she told The Wrap. “But that’s what they want to put me in a state of fear. And I say no. I will not be afraid so I will protect myself and I do have people around me who are ready to protect me if someone goes after me. Don’t f–k with me is where I’m at.”
