Rose McGowan on Twitter: 'HW Raped Me'

Rose McGowan on Twitter: 'HW Raped Me'

On Thursday, shortly after McGowan's tweets posted, The Hollywood Reporter published an interview with Isa Hackett, daughter of author Philip K. Dick and executive producer of Amazon series Man in the High Castle, with allegations that Price propositioned her at San Diego Comic-Con in 2015.

The reasons aren't entirely clear, but the suspension likely stems from McGowan's tweets directed at Ben Affleck, who she has accused of lying when he claimed to be unaware of Weinstein's harassment and assault of Hollywood actors.

The tweet was deleted, and Independent Journal Review asked McGowan whose number it was, but she didn't answer before publication. She reportedly received a settlement of $100,000 from Weinstein over an incident that took place in 1997.

McGowan, who starred in the 1996 Miramax film Scream, declined to comment to the Times about the alleged settlement. I said I was the proof. He said it hadn't been proven.




McGowan's ban raised the ire of several users who pointed out that Twitter allowed tweets from white supremacists and even highly controversial tweets from the USA president to remain on its service. The notice said that Twitter determined McGowan's account had violated the Twitter Rules, she said. McGowan moved to Instagram to announce that her service had been frozen. As more and more women come forward to accuse the film mogul of inappropriate behavior, she has been a leading critic of Weinstein, his company and many of his former supporters.

It's unclear which of McGowan's tweets that Twitter identified as violating its rules.

"Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power", the statement concludes.

McGowan has been one of the most public detractors of Weinstein since allegations of his sexual misconduct surfaced, encouraging her #ROSEARMY to join her in criticising people who enabled, covered up or defended the alleged abuse. "We stand with the fearless women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices", Twitter tweeted. We have contacted the actress and will update this story if she or her team responds.
