Actor Rose McGowan, who is at the center of sexual assault claims against film producer Harvey Weinstein, said that her Twitter account has been temporarily suspended.
McGowan announced the suspension via her Instagram and Facebook pages, writing: “TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMY.”
In the wake of a bombshell report in The New York Times about sexual harassment claims against movie mogul Weinstein, McGowan has expressed support for his victims, and lambasted movie executives as well as actors who she alleged turned a blind eye to Weinstein’s actions.
Among those singled out was actor Ben Affleck, who she told to “fuck off” on Twitter after he denied knowledge of Weinstein’s behavior.
The Times reported that Weinstein had reached a $100,000 legal settlement with McGowan following an encounter in a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007. She is one of the highest profile actresses to accuse Weinstein of misconduct, alleging the producer sexually harassed and assaulted her when she was in her early 20s.
In recent months, the suspension policies of Twitter have been debated, with critics calling for President Donald Trump to be suspended from the platform for threatening war against North Korea.
Newsweek has reached out to Twitter for further information on the McGowan suspension.
