Rose McGowan accuses Twitter of censorship over Clinton tweet

Rose McGowan is accusing Twitter of trying to censor her after the social media giant suspended her account for what it said was a violation of its non-consensual nudity policy in a tweet slamming Vice President Harris and former President Clinton, Fox New reports.

“What are you so afraid of Jack Dorsey, a little freedom of speech?” McGowan said a video response shared by Tuesday in which she calls out the Twitter CEO for her suspension from his social media platform. “I know Twitter is trying to silence me, and I know a lot of powerful Democrats are behind it.”

The activist and actor had taken to Twitter to condemn Harris prior to the vice president’s appearance at the Clinton Global Initiative summit for a speaking engagement focused on women empowerment last week. Clinton, she pointed out, has been accused of sexual misconduct.

“This is obscene @KamalaHarris,” McGowan tweeted at Harris on March 25, a day before the event, according to Fox News. “You speaking with Bill Clinton about empowering women & girls is disgusting. Have you no soul? Have you no ethics? Ask him about being on an island of human trafficking victims 27 times. You are showing us exactly who you are.”

The tweet referenced a claim from former Clinton confidant Doug Band, who alleged in December that he had visited Jeffrey Epstein’s “pedophile” island in 2003. Clinton has denied ever stepping foot on the island. 

McGowan was suspended from Twitter over the message, which featured a realistic piece of artwork by British artist Alison Jackson depicting Clinton receiving a massage from an unknown woman.The social media site flagged the tweet as being a violation of its non-consensual nudity policy, Fox New reports.

“Let me speak,” McGowan concluded her video retort. “I am more dangerous if you silence me.”

McGowan is one of the women who accused disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault.
