Harvey Weinstein allegations spark social media campaign

VIDEO Blake Lively opens up about All I See is You

Actress Alyssa Milano speaks at the 2017 World Of Children Hero Awards at Montage Beverly Hills on April 19, 2017 in Beverly Hills, California.

The messages kept pouring in not just from women but men too.

Actress Alyssa Milano is getting thousands of responses on Twitter to her request that people reply to her on the social network with "me too" if they have been sexually harassed or assaulted.

"If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write "me too" as a reply to this tweet", the "Charmed" actress posted to Twitter on Sunday. The protest took place after McGowan was temporarily suspended from the platform amidst the Harvey Weinstein shitstorm.

"The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors met today to discuss the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, and has voted well in excess of the required two-thirds majority to immediately expel him from the Academy", according to a statement issued on Saturday from the organization.

Weinstein, through a spokesperson, has "unequivocally" denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex".

Harris said, the Coast Guard as well as the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation will be conducting a water quality evaluation . Several boats and a helicopter are now conducting a search and rescue mission as there is one more person possibly on the rig.

The Wrap said it wasn't long before responses began to pour in, causing #MeToo to trend.

The campaign quickly trended on Twitter and Facebook, with notable names like Lady Gaga, Monica Lewinsky and Rosario Dawson identifying themselves as victims.

The subpoena is part of a defamation lawsuit brought by Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Trump's reality TV show "The Apprentice" who alleged he tried to kiss and grope her without her consent.

McGowan has become an outspoken online critic of both Weinstein and Hollywood's culture of objectification.

Milano says her friend told her such a tweet "might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem".

British police are investigating three new allegations of sexual assault against film producer Harvey Weinstein, all made by the same woman.
