In a video that she posted on YouTube — and since deleted from her account— a visably emotional Rose McGowan pleaded to those considering suicide to reach out for help.
“To those considering suicide, please don’t,” McGowan said in the video, adding “Please call for help because it’s a permanent solution to a temporary problem. It’s not forever. And the world will not be better off without you.”
She then addressed Bourdain's bereved girlfriend, Italian Actress and Filmmaker Asia Argeto. “Oh Asia Argento, you’ve been through so much,” she said. The pleaded “Anthony, why? Please call a suicide hotline. This will affect people across the globe because Bourdain was international. Please call.”
