"I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bulls**t in Hollywood. Hahaha," McGowan tweeted Wednesday night, after her initial tweet had been picking up steam during the week. McGowan still seemed unfazed, tagging the post, " #douchebags #awesome #BRINGIT."
"The awesome thing about being an artist? You can't be fired from your own mind. #FREEDOM," the 41-year-old former Charmed star tweeted later.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, one of McGowan’s agents at Innovative Artists, Sheila Wenzel -- initially believed to be the agent who had dropped her -- was also fired from the agency after McGowan had been let go. However, it now appears that Wenzel's departure was in the works long before McGowan was dropped.
On Thursday, McGowan took to Twitter once again to defend Wenzel, writing, "Sheila Wenzel is a wonderful agent that ceased working with Innovative before my firing. She's a good, strong woman I'm proud to know."
