Twitter Suspends Weinstein Accuser Rose McGowan

Actress Rose McGowan, who has been one of the most vocal Harvey Weinstein accusers, had her Twitter account suspended for 12 hours.

On her Instagram page Wednesday night, McGowan posted a screenshot of a notification from Twitter that her account was being suspended for violating Twitter rules.

“We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules, so we’ve temporarily limited some of your account features,” it says, indicating that the 12-hour countdown will not begin until McGowan deletes the tweets that violate Twitter rules. The post does not indicate which tweets are in violation.

McGowan has been outspoken about her harassment by movie producer Harvey Weinstein–she settled with Weinstein in 1997 after an incident in a hotel room at the Sundance Movie Festival.

On Twitter, McGowan has accused a number of high-profile people of covering up for the abuse, including Hollywood actor Ben Affleck. She told him to “fuck off” after he released a statement claiming he never knew about Weinstein’s behavior.
