Rose McGowan on Twitter: 'HW Raped Me'

Rose McGowan on Twitter: 'HW Raped Me'”

The actor, who has spent the last few days tweeting about the sexual harassment allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, also showed a screenshot of a message from Twitter stating her account will have some of its features limited for violating Twitter's rules.

Rose McGowan got back on Twitter this afternoon with a fury in her fingers. The New York Times reports she reached a 100-thousand-dollar settlement with Weinstein after a hotel room encounter with him 20 years ago.

The context of the revelation was also significant, as McGowan alleged Amazon Studios optioned a TV series from her and then killed it after she voiced concern to executives about Weinstein.

Although it's not clear exactly who McGowan was talking to besides Bezos, at a 2016 Independent Filmmaker Project event in Brooklyn, the actress said she had sold a script to Amazon. "We stand with the courageous women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices".

The 44-year-old shared a photo of the letter she received from the company with the caption: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".

In its notice to her, the company stated that her "account violated Twitter rules" and so it was temporarily deactivated for a period of 12 hours. McGowan has been using the social media platform to mobilise her #ROSEARMY against those people she perceives as enabling and covering up Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct, including Ben Affleck, Bob Weinstein and Casey Affleck. "You all knew", she wrote on Twitter.

Many questioned Twitter's approach, and some high-profile users, including comedy writer Graham Linehan, threatened to quit the service altogether in response.

McGowan is one of at least 20 women to have accused Weinstein of sexually harassing them.

A Twitter spokesperson said only, "We don't comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons".

Twitter's terms of service give it a wide latitude to suspend accounts, either on the basis of publishing threatening material, the use of offensive language or exposing Twitter to legal action. Twitter explained they had blocked the "Charmed" star's account "temporarily" because she had posted a private phone number.
