Twitter Suspends Rose McGowan's Account

Share

Rose McGowan was suspended from Twitter for posting a phone number - not for speaking out against Harvey Weinstein and Ben Affleck, the social media service said Thursday. He said it hadn't been proven.

Rose McGowan (at a Los Angeles event last month) settled with Weinstein after an alleged assault in 1997. Price is the president of Amazon Studios, a division of Amazon that focuses on TV shows and films.

In response to McGowan's claims, Sallie Hofmeister, a representative for Weinstein, said in a statement: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein". "I love @amazon but there is rot in Hollywood", the actress added.

The "Charmed" actress turned to Instagram after learning of her suspension, sharing an image of Twitter's notification of suspension and lodging a plea to her followers. She also alleges, in a series of tweets in which she tagged Amazon's founder Jeff Bezos, that she told the head of Amazon studios about the alleged rape and called on Amazon to stop funding the work of "rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers". Over & over I said it. I said I was the proof...

McGowan had been unrelenting in her advocacy since last week's New York Times article detailing decades of sexual harassment allegations against Weinstein.

The social media campaign to further oust Harvey Weinstein's bad behavior took a turn this week when it was learned that the disgraced Hollywood producer a year ago had bullied and threatened the founder of the Coachella music festival. I was ignored. Deal was done. According to a tweet, Twitter suspended the account because she posted a "private phone number".

Actress Rose McGowan, an outspoken critic of abuses against women in the entertainment industry and one of several high-profile figures to accuse Harvey Weinstein of abuse, has been suspended from Twitter.

In her latest tweets, McGowan said she had sold a script to Amazon, which was in development, when she learned a "Weinstein bailout was in the works". McGowan declined to comment for that story and she did not immediately respond to the Guardian's request for comment on Thursday.
