But Why Can't Anyone Be Nice to Rose McGowan?

This is a sad, sorry story involving the beautiful Rose McGowan and some rude, hateful people. Are you ready? We should probably just jump into this so we can get to all the outrage.
This whole mess started when Rose posted this photo of herself:
Then a whole bunch of people commented to tell her that she looked like Michael Jackson. Which is actually kind of fair, because of the glasses and the hair -- don't act like you don't see it -- but some commenters took it too far when they made comments about how she needed to stop having plastic surgery. Just in case you don't know, that's kind of a sensitive topic, because while Rose has had plastic surgery, it was reconstructive surgery after she got into a bad car accident. And that's why it's understandable that Rose got upset in the comments:
"Has anyone stopped to think that Michael Jackson used to be black, and tried to turn himself into a white, possibly Irish person with a cleft chin and a tiny nose? I was born Irish. So f--- off losers."
She also posted a comparison of Michael Jackson when he was younger and Michael in his later years, and said "Exactly. You dumb f---s. Eat it."
To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what point Rose is trying to make here. Maybe that Michael looked the way he looked because of plastic surgery when a lot of those features were hers to begin with? I don't know, but you can't really blame her for lashing out like this. Her car accident and the following surgery had to be one of the most traumatic events of her entire life, and to have strangers who don't know anything about it make fun of her for it, that has to be awful. And yes, she could have handled it better, two wrongs don't make a right and all that, but man, guys. Why can't everyone have a little heart?
