Rose McGowan has been hospitalised after she broke her arm after trying to catch a glimpse of the US presidential election results while on the stairs.
This election business has clearly now taken a turn.
The actress and activist updated fans on the unfortunate injury on Thursday as she shared a picture from a hospital bed in Mexico, holding her left arm up which was wrapped in a cast.
McGowan captioned the shot: ‘Reading US election results while on the stairs = bone break.’
The former Charmed actress, 47, then thought she’d riff on the current political climate (hey, when in Rome) and went on to use the opportunity to criticise the US healthcare system, which she believed would have chewed through her wallet for the hospital trip.
She wrote: ‘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.’
It seems the star had settled in to the area though, responding to a fan who asked: ‘Why not stay?’, replying: ‘I am.’
She went on: ‘My father lived in MX for years, tia y tio are maestros in San Miguel DA, it’s in my blood to stay in the heart centered land. I came here to heal my insides and it’s really helping.’
McGowan has been scathing about both current president Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who are locked in a closely fought election with razor-thin margins set to decide the winner.
Neither has reached the 270 electoral votes needed to clutch leadership, three days on from election day.
Writing on Twitter earlier this week, McGowan accused Biden and the Democratic Party of achieving ‘nothing’.
She said: ‘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, one of the first actresses to come forward and accuse disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, has previously called Trump a ‘disease’.
