Rose McGowan Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Rape, Claims Amazon Studios Ignored Her

Twitter Suspends Actress Rose McGowan's Account

The sanctions came after the Charmed and Nip/Tuck star talked about the Weinstein allegations.

Film mogul Harvey Weinstein harassment scandal took a turn after actress Rose McGowan's account was suspended following rape allegations against the producer. In order to begin the 12-hour suspension, the message told her to delete tweets that violated the company's rules. The social network's lack of transparency has led to a great deal of frustration and confusion.

Twitter later restored the account, explaining that McGowan had been locked out because one of her tweets included a private phone number, which violated the company's terms of service.

McGowan has since criticised other major Hollywood figures for failing to confront Weinstein, at one point tweeting: "You all knew".

In subsequent tweets, she urges Bezos to stop funding "alleged [pedophiles] and sexual harassers" in the industry.

Rose McGowan got back on Twitter this afternoon with a fury in her fingers.

Trump signs health care executive order
His latest executive order , signed Thursday, will cause premiums to fall drastically for "millions of Americans", Trump said. Association health plans, which are usually sponsored by trade organizations or interest groups, already exist.

While McGowan has avoided addressing her past with Weinstein directly, she has often seemingly referenced it. "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", it added.

Some Twitter users, including famed director Ava DuVernay, added the issue of race to the conversation, noting that women of color had not received the same type of support when they protested.

Twitter has faced frequent criticism for failing to address the torrents of abusive comments directed at women, minorities and those who speak out against abuse.

Rose McGowan said late Wednesday that Twitter had suspended her from tweeting.

The first New York Times investigation into Weinstein reported that in 1997 McGowan, who was then 23, had reached a $100,000 settlement with the producer after "an episode in a hotel room".
