Twitter Suspends Account Of Weinstein Accuser Rose McGowan

THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMY.”


She added a screenshot from a message from Twitter telling her that she had violated their terms of service and she would be locked out for 12 hours.

Since the bombshell sexual harassment, assault and rape allegations about Weinstein were reported by the New York Times and The New Yorker, McGowan has excoriated Weinstein and others, like Affleck, whom she believes knew about Weinstein’s disgraceful behavior but did nothing to stop it or hold Weinstein accountable. The NYT reported in its original expose that McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein after an encounter in a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997.

Previously, Twitter has mostly reserved suspensions and bans like this for conservative journalists and commentators. But the company’s motive in its decision to crack down on a famous actress speaking out about sexual abuse is not known. Representatives for the company have not yet commentated on McGowan’s suspension.
