As US election counts go down to the bone, Rose McGowan’s dedication to keeping across results has landed her in hospital.
The 47-year-old actress and activist shared a photo on Instagram that showed her wearing a face mask and a cast on her left arm.
McGowan explained the cause of her injury was politics related, writing in her post: “Reading US election results while on the stairs = bone break.”

Donald Trump and Joe Biden are currently locked in a closely fought election race with razor-thin margins set to decide the winner.
McGowan went on to explain that she wasn’t being treated in America, but in neighbouring Mexico, writing: “It cost $250 in Mexico for my emergency room visit, compared to a likely 10k hospital bill in California for the same accident.
“USA is not the land of the free, it’s the land of the overcharged. #bigpharma #usa🇺🇸 #mexico 🇲🇽 OUCH”.

Her dig at the US healthcare system is not uncharacteristic for McGowan, who has been vocal in her criticism of both presidential candidates.

She wrote on Twitter: “What have the Democrats done to solve ANYTHING? Help the poor? No. Help black & brown people? No. Stop police brutality? No. Help single mothers? No. Help children? No. You have achieved nothing. NOTHING.”
McGowan was one of the first actresses to speak out about disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, accusing him of sexual misconduct. He is now serving 23 years in prison for rape and sexual assault.
