Rosanna Arquette Takes Twitter Account Private After Confessing ‘Shame’ for Being ‘Born White and Privileged’

The actress and producer says her heritage ”disgusts me“

Rosanna Arquette made her Twitter account private after tweeting on Wednesday that she was ashamed of being “white and privileged.”

“I’m sorry I was born white and privileged. It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame,” the “Pulp Fiction” and “Crash” actress said in a tweet that quickly sparking backlash from other Twitter users.

By Thursday morning, Arquette’s tweets were hidden from anyone that wasn’t following her. Arquette has nearly 90,000 followers. A rep for Arquette did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on how long the actress planned to keep her account private.

A quick search for Arquette’s name on Twitter showed her comments were not popular with everyone. Several users sardonically suggested Arquette give away her money to atone for her privilege. Others claimed it was a textbook case of self-hatred and Hollywood “wokeness” run amok.

“What a patronizing, self-important person,” one user said, replying to Arquette’s tweet. “Supposedly carrying so much shame [and] guilt that no one should think of her as an overall well-off person. Well, give it all to charity if you’re so guilt-ridden?”

Arquette has been a vocal critic of President Trump and his administration on Twitter, saying on Thursday he “incites racist violence. The end.” She also tweeted earlier this week that she planned to “never stand for the flag again.”

Arquette was one of the first prominent individuals to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, saying earlier this year  the disgraced mogul should “absolutely” go to jail.
