Unionist politicians irate with Rose McGowans IRA commentsSeptember 12th, 2008 - 6:46 pm ICT by ANI
London , Sep 12 (ANI): Hollywood actress Rose McGowan has caused a storm after she said that she would have been an IRA terrorist if she had lived through the Troubles.
McGowan made the comments ahead of the 50 Dead Men Walking premier in Canada .
The Unionist politicians are reportedly offended by her comments and have criticized her comments by calling them foolish and naive.
According to the grapevine the actress, who stars in 50 Dead Men Walking, an adaptation of IRA informer Martin McGartland’’s autobiography, said her “heart just broke for the cause”.
The The Doom Generation actress has offended Martin McGartland as well as Ulster Unionist Mid-Ulster assembly member Billy Armstrong, who found her comments to be foolish and offensive.
“As an IRA member would Miss McGowan have been happy to participate in the abduction, torture and murder of Jean McConville, a widow and mother of 10,” The BBC quoted Billy Armstrong, as saying.
“Violence is not to be played out daily and provide an answer to problems, but I understand it,” he added.
“Rose McGowan’’s comments were insulting to victims of IRA terrorism and she should apologise,” Martin McGartland, who still lives in hiding said. (ANI)
