ACTRESS Rose McGowan has publicly offered an olive branch to those she may have offended with recent comments in which she said gay men were misogynists.

McGowan, best-known for role as Paige Matthews in Charmed, not only said gay men were more misogynistic than straight men, but also accused them  of having “basically fought for the right to stand on top of a float wearing an orange speedo and take molly [MDMA]“.

Her apology came in the form of an opinion piece she wrote for The Huffington Post.

“Misogyny infuriates men and it endangers me as a human. It also endangers the LGBT community,” she writes.

“Could I have articulated my frustration in a better fashion? Undoubtedly. For that I apologise, but I stand by the overall point.”

Her apology also addressed the accusations from social media who questioned her alliance with the gay community.

“And as for those who question my allegiance to the gay community and try to paint me as a gay hater, I have a big eye roll reserved just for you. I’m human, I mess up, but I mess up with love and good intentions,” she writes.

“I feel like I’m in a fight with my family.”

However, McGowan afterwards had a tirade on Twitter directed at the continued online controversy:
