Rose McGowan’s Twitter Account Suspended After Tweeting About Weinstein’s Alleged Sexual Misconduct

Actor Rose McGowan, an alleged victim of sexual assault by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, had her account suspended by Twitter after tweeting about Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct.

In Twitter’s message, she can only send direct messages for the next 12 hours because her “account violated the Twitter rules,” McGowan posted to Instagram.

Twitter said that McGowan sent a tweet that included a private phone number, a violation of the terms of service.

After Ben Affleck tweeted on Tuesday that Weinstein’s behavior made him “sick,” McGowan tweeted that he was a “liar” and claimed he knew about Weinstein’s sexual misconduct for years. Affleck also groped actress Hilarie Burton on MTV years ago, which he apologized for Wednesday.

TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMY
