Rose McGowan claims that the Charmed reboot exists in "the shadow" of the original.

Her issues with The CW's incarnation were voiced publicly earlier this week during an Instagram Live video – appearing alongside former co-star Holly Marie Combs – but this garnered a direct response from the reboot's Sarah Jeffrey on Twitter.

Taking to her Instagram Stories a couple of days ago, Rose hit back at suggestions that her criticism was based around diversity.

"Dear Sarah Jeffery, I honestly had no idea who you were til you tweeted," she wrote.

"I have been too busy fighting monsters and fighting for a massive Cultural Reset to notice who's in the reboot. Absolutely nothing to do with race, that's quite a stretch you took. I'm beyond glad any WOC has a well paying job. Hell yes to that. I'm sure you are a great actress."

The Paige Matthews star continued: "My quibble (google it) is about execs and producers and @wb network trading on years of my work and name in such a cynical and obvious way – a money grab to cash in on the Charmed name.

"I do not care that they remade it, I have far bigger things I'm dealing with. I do not nor will I watch a show I disagree with on principle," Rose went on to declare.

"There's no soul or heart in something made purely for profit whilst refusing to elevate and innovate. Reboots will always be the shadow, the originals will always be the sun. I wish you well."
