Twitter suspends Rose McGowan after tweets about Weinstein, Ben Affleck

Rose McGowan said late Wednesday that Twitter suspended her account after posts about Harvey Weinstein and Ben Affleck.

The “Charmed” actor has been extremely vocal about the Weinstein sexual assault and harassment scandal, using her Twitter account to share victims’ stories and to slam members of the Weinstein Company board and other actors she says are implicated.

She has particularly focused on Ben Affleck, who apologized Wednesday for groping actress Hilarie Burton on MTV in 2003. “Ben Affleck f--- off,” McGowan tweeted at him.

McGowan posted a warning from Twitter on her Instagram and Facebook pages that said that her account violated Twitter’s policy. She was put on a limited suspension, meaning that her archive is still visible, but she could not tweet, retweet or like other posts for 12 hours.

McGowan reportedly received a $100,000 settlement after Weinstein sexually assaulted her in the late 90s.

 

McGowan has called for the resignation of the Weinstein Company board, using her Twitter to mobilize an “army” of supporters with the hashtag #ROSEARMY.
