Rose McGowan Is Back on Twitter and Claiming Harvey Weinstein 'Raped Me'

She also posted an apparent notice from Twitter that read: "We have determined that this account violated the Twitter rules, so we've temporarily limited some of your account features".

Shortly afterwards McGowan's Twitter account was suspended, though it wasn't immediately clear which of her tweets was deemed offensive by the system's algorithms.

Rose McGowan's campaign against Harvey Weinstein reached new levels Thursday when the actress took her claims against the disgraced Hollywood mogul to a new level by alleging Weinstein "raped" her. Many users were quick to point out that white supremacists and even Donald Trump could consistently provoke outrage and not have their accounts suspended. It additionally stated that McGowan's account would be reinstated after 12 hours, which could be hastened by deleting the offending tweets. She added in her tweet about Affleck: "You lie".

McGowan tweeted at Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, that she "told the head of your studio that HW raped me". The social media platform didn't specify, but before her suspension she did give Ben Affleck a "F**k you" after he issued an apology to Hilarie Burton for groping her on TRL in 2003.

McGowan had been unrelenting in her advocacy since last week's New York Times article detailing decades of sexual harassment allegations against Weinstein. "The other's an actress who spoke about sexual assault". It contained the full email signature of the person sending it, including their phone number. "Twitter is a toilet and I don't want to be complicit anymore", Linehan tweeted. She said that during a cab ride with Price and former Amazon executive Michael Paull, Price repeatedly propositioned her and made inappropriate sexual comments.

And actress Jessica Chastain posted a copy of Twitter's terms of service, and asked: "Let us know which of these rules [Rose McGowan] broke".

McGowan, who settled with Weinstein over the allegations in 1997, was temporarily banned from the website on Wednesday.

"Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power".
